Enabling city digitisation wherever you can go
Two years of city mapping completed in only 5 weeks
CUSTOMER: Cabinet Brière
PRODUCT: Leica Pegasus:Backpack, Leica Pegasus:Two, Leica Pegasus:MapFactory
OBJECTIVE: Create a digital map of the two towns, Alès and Gap, to analyse their infrastructure and improve the electricity network.
Cabinet Brière was tasked with digitising the cities Ales and Gap in France to compare the two cities’ historic and modern infrastructure. Électricité Réseau Distribution France (ERDF) was going to use the two towns as standards to better understand, operate and manage the country’s electricity distribution network.
Roads, building facades and road signs were just a few of the assets surveying firm Cabinet Brière needed to map in the towns of Alès and Gap to provide a 3D digital map of the communes in southern France. ERDF contracted the 58-year-old firm known for revolutionising working methods, both in the office and in the field, with new technologies.
Combining Leica Pegasus:Two with the Leica Pegasus:Backpack the entire city was mapped in only five weeks, a project that would have normally taken two years, increasing productivity by more than 20 times.
