US: GeoSLAM will demonstrate the speed, simplicity, and versatility of 3D mobile data collection next week at the 2018 SPAR3D Expo & Conference. The technology firm will preview its latest product – the ZEB REVO RT handheld laser scanner – and conduct several live demonstrations of complex, indoor 3D mapping during the SPAR3D event.
“The future of surveying has arrived, and it is mobile!” said Robby Dudley, GeoSLAM NAFTA Channel Manager. “The ZEB-REVO RT is a game-changer for 3D surveying and mapping applications in AEC [Architecture, Engineering, Construction] and facilities management.”
The two-pound ZEB-REVO RT handheld scanner and fully integrated GeoSLAM HUB registration software will make their official North American debuts in the GeoSLAM booth (#539) at SPAR3D, which is being held June 5-7 in Anaheim, California.
GeoSLAM will participate in several live activities throughout the show:
- Product Preview at 9:45 am on Tuesday, June 5 – conference pass holders only
- Live Product Demonstrations in the Demo Theater (next to GeoSLAM booth) on June 6 and 7,
- Live presentations at stand #539 throughout the show.
SPAR3D attendees will learn how the ZEB-REVO system slashes the time and expense of performing complex 3D mapping in a variety of indoor environments from construction and renovation sites to plants and office spaces. Environments that once took hours to map take just minutes with the ZEB-REVO RT, generating an accurate 3D map in near real-time without loss of detail.
“Mapping literally occurs at walking speed,” said Dudley. “And the ZEB-REVO is so easy to use that data collection can be performed by junior staff to free up senior surveyors for other important tasks.”
Introduced in late 2017, the ZEB-REVO RT is ideal for mapping tight and hard-to-access spaces, such as underground, plant rooms and even inside drop ceilings. The device uses WiFi to seamlessly connect the scanner to a mobile phone or tablet, allowing for real-time data visualization as the user works, eliminating the need for post-processing. The GeoSLAM Hub software creates a truly end-to-end surveying and mapping workflow, enabling ZEB-REVO RT users to process, view, merge, edit and output 2D and 3D deliverables from within a single software package.
GeoSLAM data is fully compatible with software packages from other developers, including SPAR3D exhibitors ClearEdge3D and Bentley Systems, allowing for a seamless and smooth workflow.
“By participating in a short demo at SPAR3D, AEC professionals, contractors and building managers will quickly understand why architecture, engineering, construction and facilities management are the fastest growing sectors for GeoSLAM technology right now,” said Dudley.
The 2018 SPAR3D Conference is being co-located with the AECNext Technology Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.
