Laser scanning is a valuable tool for clash detection on a mine site since it allows for the rapid capture of millions of points of data from a distance. However, registering and processing the data is time-consuming and complex, and it isn’t always convenient to carry around a long-range laser scanner. The Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation solves this problem by combining the best of both robotic total station and laser scanning technologies along with imaging and GNSS capabilities in a single instrument with an easy-to-use interface. No registration of scan data is needed; the new mergeTEC technology enables the Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation to automatically synchronize images with scans and tie scans into total station measurements for seamless 3D point cloud integration. Users simply download and go – no processing is required. Watch the video above to learn more.
