Since Leica Geosystems is in the business of selling precision survey instruments, the quality of the data produced by these instruments is central to the value the company delivers to our customers. While creating the Leica ScanStation
family of products, Leica Geosystems has designed and conducted a number of steps to ensure our accuracy and performance specifications are met. This white paper summarises some of the steps taken in service and in manufacturing in order to ensure accuracy specifications are met, using the Leica ScanStation P40 as an example. Similar steps have
been applied to the creation of all P-series and C-series laser scanners.
