Leica HDS 6000 Long Range Laser Scanner in excellent condition and ready for its next job. This scanner is perfect for scanning buildings and other large objects. The useful range of phase-based scanning has been stretched and data quality improved. This provides productivity benefits, while also expanding the types of projects where phase-based scanning can be used, such as capturing multi-story building facades. The Leica HDS6000′s full, 360° x 310° field-of-view (FOV) and extended range can translate directly into fewer instrument setups and scan targets that need to be placed, scanned, and surveyed. A built-in, dual-axis (tilt) sensor offers similar potential. If indicated tilt (or level) changes are nil or insignificant, then users can apply Leica Cyclone SCAN software’s resection, backsighting, and traverse workflows to further reduce the number of targets needed.
ABA Surveying deploys Leica HDS6000 laser scanners for mobile scanning
Special use of Leica HDS6000
The January/February issue of Geomatics World (GW, UK) features an article by Alan Barrow, Managing Director of ABA Surveying, on ABA's adaptation of three Leica HDS6000 laser scanners onto a vehicle for mobile scanning. The benefits to ABA of using these scanners include the fact that ABA already owned these scanners for static scanning and mobile rail applications, so it was an incremental investment for ABA to expand the company's capability to include mobile vehicle scanning. Also, the scanners' high accuracy meets ABA's requirements for engineering surveys better than other alternatives considered. The article details other key aspects of system integration, which was performed by QPS of the Netherlands.
Tunneldrive Scanning with Leica HDS6000
3D laser scanning has become established in many applications over recent years due to its potential for rapid, non-contact data capture at a high scanning density. That this process can also be used successfully for the investigation of deformations of large surfaces is demonstrated by a research project at the Technical University Munich, Germany (TUM). The Leica HDS6000 laser scanner proved to be a success when scanning the area around the working face of an extension tunnel to the underground railway system in Stuttgart.
