Engineering & Positioning Workshop

We’re proud to continue our support of the industry as Diamond Partners of S+SNZ. Join us at the upcoming Survey & Spatial New Zealand Engineering & Positioning Workshop where professionals from the surveying and engineering industries will be sharing knowledge and showcasing projects that use innovative technology.

Our team will be there discussing some of the exciting New Zealand projects that have utilised the latest Leica Geosystems innovations particularly in the fields of reality capture and GNSS.

Global Survey team’s presentations:

11.45am: Practical Static GNSS for Control Surveys

– Bruce Robinson

Static GNSS surveys are an extremely effective way of establishing control on a site. This presentation is designed to help guide those who may need to do a control survey in the future for their licensing project or engineering/cadastral site requirements. Discussion on observation strategy, observation times and expected accuracies will be presented. The Goal of the presentation is to give the attendees a guide to enable them to feel confident in using static GNSS.”

3.30pm: Leveraging Cutting-Edge Technology to Collect More Detailed and Complete Datasets Quicker and Safer Than Ever

– Lennon Bedford and Richard Harrison

The deployment of modern positioning and measurement technologies allows surveyors to collect more accurate, detailed and complete spatial data than ever before in quicker and safer ways. This presentation will showcase three real-world examples that support this claim.

  • Mobile Mapping of a busy road in Christchurch for engineering design
  • A topographical survey for a 5km road upgrade using a GNSS rover with tilt pole and multi-constellation satellite tracking, which removed the need for extensive TPS traversing
  • Terrestrial Laser Scan of Baldwin Street to support an attempt to claim back the title of the “World’s Steepest Street”
