UK: After doubling its distribution network in 12 months, GeoSLAM has announced its return to the GEO Business 2017 geospatial conference at the Business Design Centre in Angel, London this year.
The experts in “go-anywhere” 3D mobile mapping technology will be showcasing its new real-time upgrade option for its market leading ZEB-REVO handheld mobile mapping system, with visitors to the exhibition able to see the upgrade in action for the first time.
The revised datalogger, which is compatible with all existing standard REVOs, is able to undertake SLAM registration in real-time. The results can be displayed as they are captured, as the datalogger features integrated Wi-Fi, and any browser-enabled device such as a smart phone or tablet can be used to view the information, as the user walks and scans.
Useful feedback features have been added to the optional upgrade, including the ability to quickly determine what has and hasn’t been captured during the survey before it has even finished, ensuring nothing is missed. Real-time registration means that the results are available straight away on completion of the survey.
GeoSLAM also has reason to celebrate with visitors to the stand at GEO Business: the event marks a year of unprecedented growth for the company, with the number of distributors doubling in the past 12 months.
A recent announcement marking the addition of two new partners in China – the Beijing Onrol Technology Co. Ltd and Beijing MAG Tianhong Science & Technology Development Co. Ltd., sees the number of GeoSLAM distributors increase to 49 across 40 countries globally.
“GEO Business will always be an important date on the GeoSLAM calendar,” said John Allan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
“Last year we chose the event to launch the ZEB-REVO mobile handheld indoor scanner, and it was a huge success.
“We were delighted at the valuable connections we made in our key target industries of surveying, engineering and construction, and look forward to strengthening those relationships, and making new ones, at this year’s show.”
The conference begins the day after the GeoSLAM ‘Forum’ event on Monday 22nd May, which sees the company play host to its worldwide distributors, providing commercial updates on the strategic plans for the business, together with a chance to socialise and network.
The Forum event will be held at the Australian Embassy, in recognition of GeoSLAM’s link to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
The GEO Business conference, which takes place on 23rd & 24th May, is fast establishing itself as the leading UK geospatial event in the industry calendar, and is expected to attract over 3,000 visitors from 50 countries worldwide this year.
GeoSLAM will be available at stand G9 throughout GEO Business. For further details on the company, visit www.geoslam.com.
