Default Using an rc truck to make a map

I once saw a video where someone took a rc controlled truck and put some kind of electronic device in it, then drove it all over his property. The device collected data (or sent some kind of signal) that allowed his computer to make a detailed topo map of the land. Does anyone know anything about this? I know it is a long shot, but I have looked everywhere else.

i think i vaguely remember what you're talking about. it was like an emaxx or something with a PVC cage thing with the mapping equipment on it. it mapped out like elevation and made a 3D map of this property.
but i don't remember where or how i ran across it.
