Leica Geosystems introduces imagery, live video stream to monitoring
Leica GeoMoS Imaging increases productivity, reduces time in the field
(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 13 June 2017) – Leica Geosystems, industry leader in measurement technology, announced today Leica GeoMoS Imaging, a monitoring technology that provides visual information for site documentation, inspection and detection from remote access.
With GeoMoS Imaging, an image based extension to the existing GeoMoS monitoring solution, users can continuously stay up-to-date on their monitoring project and make the best decision quickly and easily. The remote monitoring of a site can now become simpler; the live view enables users to observe and record areas of interest, and the joystick functionality allows direct access to the total station and remote operation from the convenience of the desk. Professionals can now increase their productivity and reduce their time in the field.
“We look forward to expanding our solutions portfolio with Leica GeoMoS Imaging, a newer technology that allows us to provide cutting edge services to our customers,” said Matthias Gropp, Associate Director at Murphy Surveys. “The live video stream from the field and automatic site visual documentation will reduce our time on site and make monitoring simpler. GeoMoS Imaging opens up new opportunities for our business to accelerate growth.”
A real-time solution
Unlike any other monitoring solution, GeoMoS Imaging allows automated visual inspection, enables remote observation of the site and maximises user’s output. With the live stream camera and the availability of repeated recorded images, users can obtain a better understanding around the project. For example, they can evaluate the progress of a construction or excavation site to make informed decisions about work schedules.
An automatic monitoring cycle keeps track and combines all monitoring data with images. Professionals can export, in seconds, detailed reports to observe changes of a natural target and aging infrastructure that allow for better planning.
Faster data access, safer operations
For large or small scale projects where environmental monitoring is key for safety, GeoMoS Imaging provides a flexible and expandable solution designed to assess and take protective measures in harsh and hazardous conditions. In emergency situations, quick evaluations can be made to prevent further damage and keep communities safe.
Users can evaluate and take these swift actions by visualising obstructions in line of site and providing information on metadata. Monitoring professionals can also achieve fewer site visits, keeping staff out of harm’s way while reducing costs.
"Leica Geosystems will be the first to introduce to the market live video stream from the field, a feature that increases monitoring operator’s productivity by allowing them to monitor the site from their office," said Michael Rutschmann, Leica Geosystems product manager. "Monitoring service providers, and mining and construction professionals can now invest in innovative technology that enables them to observe details with high resolution in dynamic project environments.”
