Abstract. Mobile terrestrial scanning systems automate terrestrial laser scanning. Continous scanning mobile terrestrial systems constantly spin the terrestrial laser scanner and thus combine terrestrial scanning with kinematic laser scanning. This paper presents a scan pattern analysis for these systems. We aim at finding the most advantageous combination of terrestrial and kinematic systems. The resulting 3D point cloud depends on the scan pattern and the trajectory and velocity of the mobile system.
