Technological Developments at Leica Geosystems - Interview with Mark Concannon

Towards the end of last year when Leica celebrated its 50th year in the UK, GW had the opportunity of talking to Mark Concannon, Leica’s Director of EMEA. We quizzed him on handling data volumes, service, UAVs, training and future technology developments. Geomatics World: Software has become ever more important over the last decade. Data volumes have accelerated with the arrival of laser scanning and high-resolution imaging. Surveyors often complain that the software seems to be playing catch-up with these high volume sensors. How has this affected R&D and technical support for Leica? Has the balance in terms of resources... (read more)
