Laser Scan Coordinate System Tools Added to Maptek I-Site Studio

Maptek I-Site Studio 6.1 has been released recently and includes new tools that streamline management of survey data. Users will be able to register laser scans to coordinate systems, including local mine grid coordinates. As soon as scans are brought into I-Site Studio they are ready for processing. There is no need to undertake custom transformations. This new tool will save substantial time for surveyors working with mine coordinates, said global business development manager Laser Imaging Solutions, Jason Richards. The biggest advantage is that users only need to specify a coordinate system once to use it thereafter, Richards added. They... (read more)
