Highway Surveying Project Costs Halved

Dutch surveying company Geomaat is capturing millimetre-accurate measurements in record times to support a range of highway design, construction and maintenance projects. Using the mobile laser mapping system StreetMapper, and specially developed point cloud software, Geomaat can calculate highly accurate cutting, milling and asphalt figures, create as-built models and undertake change detection.   Jolle Jelle de Vries, Managing Director of Geomaat, said that in the past these types of measurement were undertaken using total stations which was time-consuming, and therefore costly, and had a big impact on other road users. For example a 10km-stretch of highway would have taken at... (read more)

GNSS Surveying Solution R10

Trimble (USA) has during Intergeo 2012 in Hanover, Germany, introduced its next-generation GNSS surveying solution: the Trimble R10. As the smallest and lightest receiver in its class, the Trimble R10 combines powerful features and technologies including Trimble HD-GNSS to provide surveyors increased productivity. A quick-release adaptor and the ability to configure the receiver from a smartphone make it easy to deploy and use as a base station or rover. With the introduction of the Trimble R10, new versions of Trimble’s its field and office software have been released: Trimble Access 2012.20 and Trimble Business Center 2.80 to extend Trimble's Connected...

Topocart Aerial Transmission Line Surveying Project

Topocart, Brazil, has pioneered the application of aerial photogrammetry combined with laser profiling for section surveys to meet the design needs of transmission lines. Despite the extensive experience in conventional topography, the surveys necessary for implementation of transmission lines from power plants that make up the Madeira Complex had serious environmental restrictions for opening of clearings, especially in the Amazon region. These restrictions would jeopardise the implementation schedule of the lines, since only the conventional topography would not be completed in time needed to begin transmission. Topocart undertook to perform surveys of almost 1,500 kilometres, on schedule. For this it... (read more)

Land Surveying: Towards a Smarter Life

FIG Working Week in Hanoi, Vietnam, 22-26 April 2019
Surveyors and land professionals from all over the world came together in April in the heat of Hanoi to take part in the FIG 2019 Working Week. This year’s theme was ‘Geospatial information for a smarter life and environmental resilience’. The conference had a strong focus on tackling climate change by working towards a smarter life, both through the development of smart cities and also in rural areas. Spatial information, big data, surveying, BIM, land administration and much more are recognized as being essential factors in this development. There is a strong awareness that Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are directly... (read more)
