I-Site Long RangeMaptek announced the new I-Site 8820 long range laser scanner on day one of the Australian Institute of Mine Surveyors (AIMS) conference in Sydney, Australia. Special features of this model include a 20 percent increase in range, twice the data acquisition speed, 25 percent improvement in range accuracy and a new modular design. The I-Site 8820 laser scanner is a modular system which can be configured to match site survey requirements. All the controls are built-in and the laser scanner is light enough to be carried single-handed. An integrated high resolution panoramic digital camera is included for geotechnical and geological mapping. An in-built survey grade telescope allows for traditional backsight workflow. maptek.com
