3D laser scanning solutions for surveyors
A must-have in a surveyor’s toolbox
Surveying service providers are increasingly adding 3D laser scanning to their technology toolbox to replicate the physical world and turn it into a virtual environment, using software to derive valuable and useful information.
From the Leica ScanStation P30/40 for highest accuracy, the P50 for the longest range,
the Leica RTC360 for highest productivity, to the
Leica BLK360 for tight locations and interiors, a laser scanning solution is available to fit the needs of any surveying project.
Once surveyors have captured a digital twin with outstanding speed and the highest quality, they have the ability to visualise, extract, analyse, collaborate and share with software like Cyclone, TruView, Cyclone ENTERPRISE, and CloudWorx to get the most out of their high-value deliverable.
Growing your business with 3D laser scanning
3D laser scanning creates a competitive advantage for surveyors, allowing businesses to capture any complex geometry with the highest productivity in even the most challenging conditions. With the ability to capture comprehensive data through 360-degree images and millions of accurate measurement points, surveyors can quickly a digital version of any site which they can revisit via immersive office software; analyse directly in the field for QA/QC measures; provide new types of deliverables; and maximise new fields, such as BIM.
Have you been thinking about point clouds as a means to capture more business and drive productivity beyond point-by-point measurements? Watch this on-demand webinar to discover the best way to add 3D laser scanning to your existing workflows.
Getting started with laser scanning with the MS60 MultiStation
Surveyors can get started with laser scanning with the new
Leica Nova MS60 MultiStation,
using the workflows and Leica Captivate
apps that are familiar to them. The MS60 merges several technologies,
enabling users to perform all traditional total station surveying tasks and easily scan at a speed of up to 30,000 points per second – all in one instrument.
With specific functionality for data collection for volume calculation and grids to measure flatness,
field teams can accurately capture more high-quality, feature-rich data in less time.
Including digital imaging and GNSS connectivity, the MS60 makes it simple to switch between angle and distance, imaging and scanning data capture methods, and merge all data into one dataset. With intuitive on-board Captivate software, surveyors can also bring 2D and 3D digital design data into the field and at their fingertips. Combined with Leica Infinity, a seamless dataflow exists to combine MultiStation, total station and GNSS data to complete valuable deliverables.
The right choice for demanding laser scanning projects: The Leica P-Series ScanStations
The most demanding laser scanning projects require unsurpassed speed, accuracy and range.
Surveyors rely on the
Leica ScanStation P-Series 3D laser scanners to deliver highest quality 3D data and High-Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging at an extremely fast
scan rate of 1 million points per second at ranges of up to one kilometre.
Tailored for surveyors’ higher accuracy needs, the P-Series are equipped with survey functionality (such as quick orientation, set azimuth, resection and traverse functionality), unsurpassed range and angular accuracy paired with low range noise and survey-grade dual-axis compensation. Designed to perform even under the toughest conditions, the P-Series capture data in every weather and comply with the IP54 rating for dust and water resistance.
