12 February 2007 – Since February 2007, TopoSys North America Inc., a new subsidiary located in Denver, Colorado, is serving as a sales and support center to satisfy the ever increasing demand for TopoSys Lidar systems in North America. Experienced and knowledgeable staff are committed to support and share the unique TopoSys expertise with American, Canadian and Mexican customers.
Emphasis is given to locally assist smaller engineering and mapping firms to use this technology for large-scale surveys like engineering site development, road surveys, power and pipeline monitoring and hydrographic studies of floodplains and coastal erosion. Operational flexibility, efficient workflow and quick product turn-around are key benefits of TopoSys Lidar systems.
– About TopoSys
TopoSys Topographische Systemdaten GmbH was founded in 1995 as a spin-off of Dornier GmbH, an air- and spacecraft manufacturer of worldwide reputation. In 1996 TopoSys presented the “Falcon I”, an airborne laser scanning system based on a unique fiber-optic technology, the first of its kind worldwide, including software for pre-and post processing.
Since 1996 TopoSys has operated its own laser scanning systems in central Europe and has covered thousands of square kilometers for digital terrain models. In conjunction with the systematic development of customer-oriented applications in the GIS sector, TopoSys has assumed the role of the leading service provider for precise Lidar scanning throughout Europe.
Building on the long-standing know-how in the development and production of fiber-optic scanners for in-house use TopoSys decided to embark on manufacturing and worldwide marketing of Lidar turn-key systems. In October 2005 three newly developed products have been introduced to the Lidar market, the Falcon III, the Harrier 56 and the Harrier 24. TopoSys now offers a well-balanced family of sensor systems, which allows its customers to serve all Lidar applications from precise widearea to high-density corridor mapping.
