Leica Geosystems’ GIS & Mapping Division will release the new Leica ALS50 Airborne Laser Scanner worldwide in February 2003. The ALS50 offers the power and aptitude of the ALS40 in a new, portable scanner design with scanning speeds 20-40 percent faster than competing systems. Measuring roughly 8.5 inches tall and weighing 65 pounds, the compact ALS50 Scanner Assembly allows fast and simple installation in helicopters and small aircraft. (Leica Geosystems, Atlanta, Ga.)
