New Complete Ecosystem Created with Small Laser Scanner and Mobile-device App

Leica Geosystems has announced that the Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 laser scanning mobile-device app now works in conjunction with the Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner to create a laser scanning ecosystem where captured data is streamlined for registration and publication. With the combination of laser scanner and software, users can view, quality control and prepare data directly in the field using a tablet computer. Downstream, the data is then fully immersed within the single platform of Leica Cyclone office processing software, ensuring no data is lost between transfers from one interface to another.  “With the integration of the BLK360 and...

Bentley Puts Modelling in the Cloud

Is the 3D model becoming the only deliverable? For construction, is photogrammetry a better option than LiDAR? How long before modelling software can calculate costs? When should you start mentioning BIM? Richard Groom reports from a day of insight. It was only near the end of a morning of presentations at Bentley’s London offices that the acronym BIM was mentioned. The reason, I was told, is that the meaning of BIM develops with people’s understanding as they progress through Levels one to three and that for those just starting out, talk of BIM as a process can be a step...
