A Message from the President

Whether a movie set decorator needs to measure the single distance between two props or a scientist needs to map the 3D terrains of a wild frontier, dimensional intelligence gives us the ability to understand our world. With the deeper knowledge of the challenging environments we operate in, we can then perform better work that's needed to shape smart change around the globe.

Dimensional intelligence is key to understanding the effects of natural disasters. An architecture team from the University of Notre Dame used Leica Geosystems laser scanning technology to find out if the famous Indian world wonder, Taj Mahal, was safe from the possible effects of a nearby earthquake, ensuring the antiquity was structurally sound. At the same time, the Leica Pegasus:Backpack was used after a destructive tornado in Italy to provide the local government with critical information, enabling recovery and rebuilding operations to get underway sooner and safer.

Without dimensional intelligence, producing quality results is not possible. The German cruise ship builder MEYER WERFT ensures 800-tonne blocks were precisely placed together with the Leica ScanStation P40 to construct some of the largest vessels on the high seas today. Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin’s Bureau of Economic Geology used the Leica Chiroptera to take exact measurements of thousands of lakes to determine where ice roads could be safely and sustainably built in some of the most remote areas on the planet.

Dimensional intelligence helps us all to shape a more supportive world, and I’m proud our innovations are helping to get us there. Enjoy your read.
