Leica Captivate Apps for Staking Out and Checking Surfaces and Objects

Surveying software apps that make staking out and checking surfaces and other objects easier, enhancing surveyor productivity.

When faced with pressure to keep projects on track, measurement professionals know that accuracy, efficiency, and productivity are critical against project designs. The range of Leica Captivate apps for staking out and checking surfaces and objects puts measurement data to work, enabling results to be analysed and compared against project surfaces and objects. Empowering real-time results on site, these apps enable adjustments and corrections without delay.


Informed in-field decisions for construction and engineering surveying tasks


Inspect Surfaces

Analysing objects in the field can result in huge time and cost savings when checking the flatness of a concrete floor, the verticality of a building or wall, or deformations in a structure, such as a dam.

The Leica Captivate Inspect Surfaces app empowers you to make the right decision directly in the field when comparing and analysing surfaces.

Compare a newly measured or scanned surface to a design surface from DXF, DTM or IFC data, or a previously measured surface.

Automated surface analysis generates a coloured heatmap, providing an interactive, graphical 3D visualisation for quick identification of areas with significant difference. The MultiStation or robotic total station can automatically indicate the area of interest with its red laser to immediately show where rework is needed.

Stake DTM

The Leica Captivate Stake DTM app is the go-to tool when staking or checking surface design data defined in a digital terrain model (DTM).

Simple and clear live reporting of height differences between the current measured position and the DTM are combined with convenient export options, such as a cut sheet report.

When staking out the position of design points and needing height information from a DTM, choose the Stake pts & DTM app to flexibly work with data from different sources at the same time.

Measure plane/grid

The Leica Captivate Measure plane/grid app provides a simple yet effective workflow to make and compare measurements relative to a plane or reference surface. This app simplifies the process of:

• Measuring individual points, to instantly report on their perpendicular distance from a defined plane.

• Automatically measuring a grid of points on a defined plane or surface, to efficiently capture the points needed to model the defined area.

Structural steel

The Leica Captivate Structural Steel app is the perfect measurement partner when positioning and checking structural steel building elements such as I-beam columns.

Using an easy-to-follow workflow, the app is designed to efficiently stake column positions and check their as-built location.

The Structural Steel app enables:

• Staking column bolt positions

• Measuring column positions

• Checking column spacing and alignment

• Checking column inclination

Captivate Quick Tip: Inspecting a road surface or tunnel lining

Did you know that the Inspect Surfaces app streamlines the process of checking a road surface or tunnel lining, allowing differences to the design to be identified directly in the field?

Measure or scan the current as-built road or tunnel surface, then compute and compare differences with the road or tunnel design model. The coloured heatmap generated by the Inspect Surfaces app provides fast and clear 3D visualisation of results. Data interactivity enables the MultiStation or robotic total station to quickly indicate any low and high spots on the road or underbreak and overbreak areas on the tunnel lining. The result? Rework can commence without delay, and reports can be produced for quality documentation.
