HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s annual conference, will take place in Las Vegas on June 2-5.

Early-bird registration for the event will last through Jan. 31, with attendees signing up by that date saving $600. Registration information can be found on the HxGN LIVE 2014 website.

Customers, partners and the global brand network of Hexagon will all come together to share ideas and strategies. User presentations, training sessions, product updates and networking events highlight the three-day conference.

The Geosystems track will cover a range of geospatial technologies, applications and solutions from Leica Geosystems, its sister brands and solution partners. More than 100 presentations will incorporate user testimonials, reports on industry trends, new technology previews, interactive technical demonstrations, workout sessions, training classes and special networking opportunities. The Geosystems track is organized into four subtracks:

  • Surveying, Infrastructure and Construction: Gain insight into the latest developments in technology, such as the Nova MS50 MultiStation and the variety of applications it can be used for. Discover through hands-on training with total stations, GNSS or GIS how to work more efficiently in surveying, constructing and monitoring infrastructure using intuitive workflows.
  • HDS/3D Laser Scanning: Leica Geosystems’ 3D laser scanning provides workflows for converting point clouds of reality into final client deliverables. It not only offers many benefits to the measurement professional but also to the recipients and users of accurate spatial information. Civil engineers, plant designers, CAD professionals, architects, contractors, forensic investigators, archaeologists and owner/operators can all profit from cost savings and added-value.
  • Geospatial Solutions: Important topics of the Geospatial Solutions subtrack will be creating smart cities with 3D data generated from airborne and terrestrial mobile systems; environmental change and disaster management; and UAV’s for commercial and industrial use.
  • Machine Control and Mining: Leica Geosystems’ Machine Control systems offer valuable material cost savings, on-site safety and high accuracy resulting in increased efficiency, higher productivity and lower fuel consumption. For mining customers, Leica Geosystems provides state-of-the-art, seamlessly integrated fleet management, production optimization, GPS guidance and autonomous control solutions.

Professionals who wish to share their projects and experience at HxGN LIVE should submit their abstracts by April 4. Submittal guidelines can be found at http://www.leica-geosystems.com/hxgn2014_speakers.
