UK: A Land and property surveyor, Formby Surveys, has declared the ZEB1 mobile mapping system as a ‘game changer’. Following a trial of the world’s first truly mobile, hand held rapid laser mapping system, undertaken in partnership with 3D Laser Mapping, the Merseyside-based precision measurement company reported significant time savings achieved in the scanning of existing buildings, compared to more traditional technologies and techniques.
With a reputation for utilising the latest technology and instrumentation to ensure complete ‘field to finish’ quality assurance procedures, Formby were keen to try the ZEB1. The system was put through a rigorous field evaluation with a ZEB1 operating novice completing a scan of an old police station and court room in a matter of hours rather than days. “It’s simple, fast and offers excellent value for money; this makes it a potential ‘game changer’ on projects that are time or cost critical. Not only is the ZEB1 the right tool for the right job in some cases it is potentially the only tool,” said Managing Director Andy Roberts.
