Abstract. Digitalization of urban roads is an important part of smart city construction. In addition to having a basic understanding of the structure of the transportation network, we need to have a preliminary understanding of the information around the road, the current status of the road, and the impact that municipal projects may have on the road. At present, the three-dimensional information of the ground parts of roads can be obtained efficiently and accurately on a large scale by using three-dimensional scanning technology. However, there is a lack of comprehensive and intuitive understanding of the under-ground information and a lack of synergistic consideration of the ground and under-ground information. In this paper, a ground and under-ground urban road surveying system based on 3D LiDAR and 3D ground penetrating radar (GPR) is presented. The system covers multi-sensor coordinated control, time-space datum setup, and post-processing data. Experiments show that the system can realize the integrated ground and under-ground 3D surveying for urban roads, generate intuitive three-dimensional point cloud map model of ground and under-ground of urban roads, and provide effective technical support for smart city construction.
