Leica Geosystems HDS LLC announced a new series of seminars on the latest field and office procedures for conducting highly labor-efficient topographic, site and as-built surveys with laser scanning. Each seminar features the use of Leica's HDS3000 laser scanner with Cyclone, Cyclone Cloudworx and Autodesk Land Development Desktop (LDD). These tools will be demonstrated together for training and interactive experience for attendees. Seminars will include an overview of High-Definition Surveying (HDS), and field data capture and the latest office processes for efficiently creating 2D CAD maps from point clouds. Presenters will show step-by-step how to take point cloud data all the way to final 2D topographic deliverables in CAD. Attendees will learn how to develop DTMs and contours for the site and how to extract points, line work and symbols in CAD from raw point cloud data. Attendees will receive an actual user case study and sample 2D maps from actual projects as references. Seminars will also cover the latest project metrics using Leica HDS3000 and Leica HDS4500 scanners. Each seminar is scheduled for one-half day and attendance is free.
