Leica Geosystems and Matterport announced a partnership to deliver a fast, simple solution for creating, modifying, distributing, and navigating immersive 3D and digital images. The effort is aimed at the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sector. The partnership is focused on integrating the new Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner and encompassing Multivista’s construction progress documentation services into Matterport’s cloud-based platform. The solution is expected to offer an easy, flexible and automated way of capturing detailed images and using the resulting data to create immersive 3D visualisations. Hexagon Geosystems President Juergen Dold said, “With our new partnership with Matterport, combined with our recent acquisition of Multivista, we are fulfilling our commitment to supporting the AEC industry and bringing the sector added value. With this latest offering, these professionals can now easily visualise their projects to shape the change needed in a digital reality for real world advancements, leading to reduced costs and increased time savings.”
