Mobile Mapping Chez Leica - Leica Mobile Mapping Day 2016

Leica Geosystems mobile mapping day featured the UK release of two new pieces of equipment and a refresh of two others. The day at Milton Keynes was a mix of indoor presentations and outdoor demonstrations, reports Richard Groom. Leica ProScan is a new three-wheeled trolley-based scanning system with a P40 scanner, which can be used indoors or outdoors. Position fixing is by total station tracking and IMU both indoors and outdoors. For outdoor work there is in addition a GNSS receiver. What makes this system special is that, when controlled using total-station tracking, it can achieve a point cloud accuracy... (read more)

Leica Geosystems Introduces New Laser Distance Metres

Leica Geosystems, an industry leader in measurement technology, has announced the new Leica DISTO X3 and X4, the latest distance metres for construction sites. The X3 and X4 withstands drop tests from a height of 2 metres, are dust- and water-protected (IP 65) and therefore suitable for rugged job site conditions. Thanks to the possibilities with the Leica DST 360 adapter for Point-to-Point (P2P) measurements and the new DISTO Plan app, it offers both flexibility and functionality. The DISTO X4 is equipped with a Pointfinder camera, allowing users to easily target distant objects in bright sunlight. Even if the laser... (read more)
