GeoSLAM Showcases 3D Mobile Mapping Technology - 22/05/2017


GeoSLAM is returning to the GEO Business geospatial conference at the Business Design Centre in London this year after doubling its distribution network in 12 months. The company, specialised in ‘go-anywhere’ 3D mobile mapping technology, is demonstrating its new real-time upgrade option for its market-leading ZEB-REVO handheld mobile mapping system. Visitors to the exhibition can see the upgrade in action for the first time.

The revised datalogger, which is compatible with all existing standard REVOs, is able to undertake SLAM registration in real time. The results can be displayed as they are captured, as the datalogger features integrated Wi-Fi, and any browser-enabled device such as a smartphone or tablet can be used to view the information as the user walks and scans.

Useful feedback features have been added to the optional upgrade, including the ability to quickly determine what has and hasn’t been captured during the survey before it has even finished, ensuring nothing is missed. Real-time registration means that the results are available straight away on completion of the survey.

GeoSLAM also has reason to celebrate with visitors to the stand at GEO Business: the event marks a year of unprecedented growth for the company, with the number of distributors doubling in the past 12 months. A recent announcement marking the addition of two new partners in China – the Beijing Onrol Technology Co. Ltd and Beijing MAG Tianhong Science & Technology Development Co. Ltd. – sees the number of GeoSLAM distributors increase to 49 across 40 countries globally.

Talking about the importance of GEO Business on the GeoSLAM calendar, John Allan, vice president of sales and marketing, commented that the company chose last year’s event to launch the ZEB-REVO mobile handheld indoor scanner. It was a huge success and the team were delighted at the valuable connections they made in their key target industries of surveying, engineering and construction. They are looking forward to strengthening those relationships, and making new ones, at this year’s show, he added.

The conference begins the day after the GeoSLAM ‘Forum’ event on Monday 22 May, which sees the company play host to its worldwide distributors, providing commercial updates on the strategic plans for the business, together with a chance to socialise and network. The Forum event is being held at the Australian Embassy, in recognition of GeoSLAM’s link to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

GeoSLAM will be available at stand G9 throughout GEO Business.
