Asset & Facilities Mgmt

Solutions for Asset & Facilities Mgmt
Asset and Facilities Monitoring involves the data collection, modelling, management and analysis of geographically referenced information from land, water, urban areas, assets existing on or under land, in or around buildings, facilities, and roads.
Building wealth from the air
The history of the Republican Agricultural Aerophotogeodetic Unitary Enterprise (BelPSHAGI) goes back to 1950, when the West Aerophotogeodetic Enterprise of the Soviet Union Office ‘Selkhozaerosyomka’ of the Ministry of Agriculture of the USSR was established. At that time, the company carried out full-cycle field and aerophotogeodetic works to create planand-cartographic materials, which was indispensable for land management of collective and state farms (kolkhozs and sovkhozs) in the Republic of Belarus, the Baltic Republics, as well as Kaliningrad and Smolensk regions of Russia. more
Lana shines with new brilliance
More than 1,500 lights have to be recorded and categorised in the South Tyrolean market town of Lana. The background of this action is a resolution by the South Tyrolean government which intends to optimise public street lighting with regard to energy efficiency and minimised light pollution. Light planner Christian Ragg developed a master plan for public lighting which focuses on saving energy and curbing light pollution in the night sky. This plan was implemented with the Leica Zeno 5 and support from mobileGIS.at. more
A tourist attraction below undefined boundaries
The Dachstein Glacier borders two Austrian states: Upper Austria and Styria. Exactly where these two borders meet was vaguely declared in 1949, after Linz and Graz, the capital cities of the two federal states, decided to end their parliament meeting by declaring that the border between the states ran along the watershed and the rocky cliffs. more
Adding real customer value
WestLAND Group, Inc., founded in 2000 in Rancho Cucamonga, California, spent years looking for the right 3D laser scanner. The firm had a definite need for various projects. But there wasn’t a huge demand; buying a dedicated scanner seemed like too much of an investment. Also, WestLAND’s topographic and as-built survey workflow is already quite efficient; ideally, scanning would fit into and extend this workflow, not be a separate solution with parallel-but-separate field and office workflows. more
Leica Zeno GIS advances Brazilian water utility asset management
Field teams from DMAE (Municipal Department of Water and Sewer)for the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre, are using Leica Zeno 10 GIS /GNSS solutions to improve the quality and accuracy of asset data collection. The investment in advanced technology supports the city’s plan for sustainable growth and a commitment to improve services for consumers. more
Leica Zeno GIS for the capture and management of Jordan’s electrical assets
IDECO is an electricity provider supplying power to four concession areas in the northern region of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The goal for the GIS department at IDECO was to capture, collect and record accurate position and GIS attribute information, including images, of all overhead and underground low voltage and medium voltage assets. In order to better manage its vast network, IDECO chose Leica Zeno GIS data loggers to collect all asset information, feeding it seamlessly into their existing Esri ArcGIS database. more
Supertalls, Superslims and Megatalls
A complete solution integrating precise GNSS positional data, continuously monitored optical data and highly accurate displacement data helps ensure vertical alignment in the construction of modern high-rise structures. more
Virtual 3D Urban Design from Laser Scan Data
The Inselhalle in Lindau, Germany, a conference center on an island in Lake Constance, was to be refurbished and extended to meet modern requirements. Since only incomplete records of the original building existed, project organizers decided to capture the existing features of this old conference hall and its surroundings using laser scanning. The acquired data is now available to architectural consultants for their designs and for virtual “tours”. more
Accurate GNSS Everywhere with SmartNet
Ten years ago, RTK surveys typically involved two GPS receivers (a base and a rover), a lot of batteries and cables, two radios, a tripod, a pole, and a backpack to carry it all. Today users can choose between a GPS or a GNSS receiver, and a radio or a mobile phone, and it all fits on the pole. With the establishment of RTK networks, they can also choose to work with an RTK rover within these networks instead of setting up their own base-station. Leica Geosystems SmartNet gives users easy access to precise Network RTK data, where they experience the best availability, reliability, and traceability using internationally recognized standards, combined with flexible and affordable subscription options that meet the needs of the local market. more
Reacting to Climate Change
‘Sweden facing climate change – threats and opportunities’ is the title of final report SOU2007:60 presented by the ‘Swedish Commission on Climate and Vulnerability’ in 2007. Appointed by the Swedish government in 2005, the commission’s task is to assess the impact of global climate change on the country. Over the last decades Sweden has suffered from significantly rising numbers of floods, landslides, and erosion. The persistent and increasing risk will affect buildings, roads, and many other infrastructure facilities. The Swedish government has granted a considerable amount of money to protect Sweden’s society, infrastructure, industry, and agriculture. One of the preventive measures is a new digital elevation model delivering highly accurate elevation data of Sweden. more
Embracing Point Clouds
Loy Surveys had been aware for a number of years that laser scanning was going to be the next big thing in surveying and would eventually become a mainstream technology. They knew they would have to master it in order to stay at the leading edge of surveying. The only question was, when? Senior Surveyor Scott Macleod on how they met the challenge. more
Accurate, Enriched Data at Lower Cost
When the CH2M HILL survey team set out to map the City of Woodburn, Oregon’s 1,500 sewer manholes, the challenge was to gather and organize a varied group of data with a limited budget. For each manhole the client wanted: the pipe invert elevation; pipe size and type; documentation of condition; amount of debris; and photos. A traditional approach would have generated an inordinate number of notes that would have been difficult to organize and deliver within budget. After considering various products, the team chose Leica MobileMatriX on ArcGIS, a survey software that provided the team with geographic information system (GIS) capabilities and survey-grade accuracy in the field. The field integration of GIS enabled the team to complete all fieldwork 16 days ahead of schedule and 25 % under budget even while using MobileMatriX for the first time. more
A new Level of Precision
Infoterra, a leader in the provision of geospatial products and services, originally purchased a Leica ADS40 Airborne Digital Sensor, like most other operators, in order to replace a conventional 9 inch film survey camera. However, the “satellite” sensor qualities of the camera have meant that Infoterra has been able to exploit the acquired imagery far more than expected. more
3D Measuring for Building Refurbishment
In times of energy shortages and price increases, more attention is paid to ways to exploit energy saving potential. The CCEM Retrofit Project does exactly this in the building sector, an area thought to offer major energy saving potential. One approach to maximise saving potential is to jacket old buildings with prefabricated elements. An indispensable step in the process is highly accurate and reliable acquisition and provision of 3D planning data. This is where geomatics comes in, making an important contribution to future energy savings in buildings within the CCEM Retrofit Project. more
illwerke vkw use MobileMatriX
In the reservoirs operated by illwerke vkw, the constant build up of sediment deposits is hampering the work of some of their divisions. Obtaining exact information on the amount and property of the sediment has therefore become very important. Using the Echolot, the Leica GPS500 and the Leica MobileMatriX, the survey crew is “getting to the bottom“ of the problems in the reservoirs. more
