US: Topcon Positioning Group upgraded its ScanMaster laser scanner software package with enhanced performance features. Version 3.05 is designed to handle larger point clouds as commonly collected with the GLS-2000. The software will continue to be compatible with older scanner models like GLS-1000 and GLS-1500. According to Charles Rihner, Vice President, Topcon GeoPositioning Group, the latest version will allow memory overflow improvements when the operator creates large point clouds and views wide images, which allows for an even smoother experience than before. Additionally, the cloud-to-cloud registration functionality will allow practitioners to use third-party scanners.
