The integration of the 3D measurement techniques with luminance imaging has increased the potential for mapping night-time road lighting conditions. In this study, we present selected static and mobile approaches for the purpose. The measurement methods include conventional 2D imaging luminance photometry and the integration of the luminance imaging with terrestrial and mobile laser scanning. In addition, we present our initial experiences with performing integrated luminance mapping and photogrammetric reconstruction from drone imagery. All of the presented methods require that the camera is calibrated with a reference luminance source. Our results show the results of luminance calibration and feasibility of 3D luminance point clouds for evaluating road surface luminances. In addition, we discuss the other potential applications, limitations and future research.
