Most versatile GNSS RTK rover with Visual Positioning announced
The Leica GS18 I, a versatile GNSS RTK rover with Visual Positioning, allows users to capture points of interest from a distance and measure points from the images in the field or the office. Visual Positioning technology, sensor-fusion combining GNSS, IMU and a camera allows users to reach previously inaccessible or obstructed points safely and efficiently. Unlike other GNSS RTK rovers that utilise imaging, the GS18 I gives users a simple workflow to measure points with survey-grade accuracy from images.

With new functionalities, the improved iCON site software enables integration and connectivity between office and field, increasing site productivity and accuracy. Its innovative, straightforward software design, smart workflows and easy-to-understand user interface make work a pleasure and increase productivity on site.
Planon, Leica Geosystems Announce Global Partnership
Planon and Leica Geosystems have announced a global partnership to integrate Planon’s software for real estate, space and asset management and Leica Geosystems’ reality capture, cloud-based visualisation and collaboration solutions to accelerate digital transformation in the building industry. With the digitalisation of the real estate and facility management business and the ongoing adoption of property technology (PropTech), there is a demand for digital twins throughout the entire lifecycle of buildings.
Leica Geosystems, Geomap cooperate to facilitate digitising facility management
Leica Geosystems and Geomap, a cloud and GIS-based Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS), announced a global cooperation to support customers in the digitalisation of their facilities and asset support services. Geomaps’ IWMS platform integrated with Leica Geosystems’ reality capture solutions provides customers with the ability to extend the life of mission-critical assets, assess maintenance remotely, provide managers accurate and reliable information and use geospatial information for indoor navigation and location-based services.
APEI first to purchase Leica CityMapper-2
Aero Photo Europe Investigation (APEI), an international survey firm with headquarters in Moulines, France, has become the first customer to purchase the Leica CityMapper-2 oblique imaging and LiDAR hybrid airborne sensor. With the new technology, APEI expands its business to the rapidly growing smart city market, which today requires more detailed and more accurate data on larger areas in fast-changing urban environments. Increasing productivity significantly and data quality for the creation of digital twins of cities and metro areas, the CityMapper-2 now offers a newly developed optical system incorporating two nadir (RGB & NIR) and four oblique 150 MP metric camera, using CMOS technology and equipped with Leica Geosystems’ Forward Motion Compensation (FMC) technology.
