Laser scanning on the go
Chapter 1: Introduction
Author: Natalie Binder, October 2016
As the world population grows and global changes in building and infrastructure construction become more rapid, our need to document this growth and change increases. Referred to as wearable reality capture sensor systems, this new concept is shaping how measurement professionals come to understand and shape the world among them.
The Leica Pegasus:Backpack was invented as part of this generation of new wearable reality capture sensor systems in response to the growing global changes. The Prisma Group was the first company to utilise the Pegasus:Backpack in its recent infrastructure project.
Based in the Netherlands, the Prisma Group consists of three companies: Prisma Meten, Prisma Geocensus and Prisma Van Steenis. The company has a variety of specialities including survey (rail, infrastructure, utility), industry (offshore and onshore), GIS, hydrography, geodetic measurements, 3D laser scanning, monitoring and mobile mapping.
The Prisma Group has always been a brand advocate of Leica Geosystems, relying on the quality products that generate quality services. One of the Prisma Group’s goals is to develop the international market. With rapid progress in the field of 3D laser scanning, the Prisma Group was keen to work closely with Leica Geosystems to achieve its goal and to become No. 1 in the field of scanning.
