Leica Geosystems partners with Geolantis to integrate a cloud based utility mapping platform
8 February 2017
(Heerbrugg, Switzerland; Klagenfurt, Austria, 8 February 2017) – Leica Geosystems, global leader of measurement and digital reality capture technologies, has teamed with Geolantis, a provider and developer of the best-in-class cloud based utility mapping and managing software, to provide an enterprise-grade utility mapping solution for all Leica Geosystems Detection products.
Thanks to Geolantis cloud based solutions, users of Leica Geosystems detection systems, GIS collectors, and GNSS positioning systems can manage projects, tasks and spatial data from one central dashboard.- the Leica DX Manager.
“We are delighted to be part of the combined solution with Geolantis' cloud-based technology that will simplify utility surveying and asset management workflows for a more productive user experience. Previously disparate data from various sources can now be streamlined into one intuitive user interface," said Katherine Broder, Leica Geosystems Construction Tools Division president. “Through this strategic partnership with Geolantis, users will be able to leverage expertise from leaders in the field of detection and cloud solutions for faster and better decision making."
Locate, map and share simultaneously
The Leica DX Manager mapping solution takes mobile data collection to a new level by combining functions from utility surveying, GIS, CAD and asset management into an easy-to-use mobile interface. With the integrated Geolantis software, users of Leica Geosystems detection solutions, like the DS2000, can integrate location data and apply locator depth measurements to GNSS measurements. The result is a fusion of both worlds that is seamlessly integrated into a cloud based software where data can be seen and shared in real time.
Michael Pegam, CEO of Geolantis, endorses the strategic partnership: “The combination of Leica Geosystems premium solutions and our cloud based platform is a unique offering. Users around the world benefit from this combination of leading technology, streamlining operations and saving valuable time. Together, we will change the way how companies in construction, utilities, telecommunications, land planning and infrastructure management will work in the future.”
