We are delighted to include the latest issue of ‘Reporter’ in the pages that follow. Published quarterly by Hexagon’s Geosystems division, the magazine’s correspondents around the world gather stories on how the company’s customers and distributors use its hardware, software and services to overcome daily challenges and shape the future of our world. This latest issue, with its focus on the power of visualisation and reality capture to make projects more efficient and productive, is no exception
For some, such as Mary Lackner, Geospatial Technical Lead at Pitkin County in Colorado, USA, acquiring aerial imagery of the entire county through the HxGN Content Program proved an eye-opener, not only in financial savings, but also in providing a new way in which to conduct business.
For others, such as VConstructions, based in Melbourne, Australia, the Leica iCON robotic total station allowed it to dispense with stringlines, tape measures and spirt levels and switch to a digital workflow for its residential and commercial building projects. The result? Tremendous efficiency gains, not least in preparing as-built plans, as well as reduced labour costs.
With more case studies and user profiles from both sides of the Atlantic and the Middle East; an interview with Rob Daw, CTO at Hexagon's Mining division; an article on combining traditional data collection methods with those made possible by the Leica Aibot CX UAV solution, plus the latest product news, this issue has something for everyone. Enjoy!
