The technical and technological progress achieved in the field of photogrammetry and teledection has resulted in remarkable advancements in various areas of activity, including topographic measurements. In what concerns detailed topographic measurements, typically performed with GNSS equipment and electronic total stations, the use of Mobile Mapping technology - LiDAR proves to be a significant advantage due to the reduction of working hours, the surveillance area coverage, and the complexity of acquired data. These measurements are performed with similar accuracy as any conventional equipment. To provide proof and test the proposed model, a section of the town of Lipova in Arad County was selected for investigation using mobile scanning equipment, specifically the Leica Pegasus: Backpack, in conjunction with a Leica Viva GS14 GNSS device. The Leica Pegasus: Backpack, a Mobile Mapping system, is a sensor platform designed for extreme ergonomic convenience. It combines five cameras providing a fully calibrated 360-degree view and two LiDAR sensors on an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber chassis. This system allows for extensive and efficient data collection both indoors and outdoors with a high level of accuracy and professionalism. Today, mobile mapping technology has become an indispensable part of our digital society. Using mobile devices and specialized applications, mobile scanning provides a fast, precise, and accessible method of recording and analyzing geographical information in real-time.
