Heerbrugg/Switzerland, Las VegasLeica Geosystems announces the Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation, an instrument that combines advanced total station technology with 3D laser scanning, imaging and GNSS positioning in an easy-to-use solution.

As the flagship product for the new Leica Nova solution, the Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation provides users with a complete, streamlined workflow that allows users to capture, create, manage and use 3D object-based spatial data directly in the field as part of a survey workflow for better decision making. It integrates advanced measurement technology, modern and intuitive field software, intelligent office software and service to give users an easy and affordable way to add laser scanning capabilities.

Powered by onboard Leica SmartWorx Viva software, the MultiStation combines high-precision total station technology with laser scanning to provide streamlined workflows, seamless data transfers and versatility.

Through a familiar survey workflow, users can capture 3D objects and create a point cloud directly in the field to identify key parameters such as volumes, minimum and maximum distances, and spatial orientation in near real-time for faster and more effective decision-making. No registration of scan data is needed; the new mergeTEC technology enables the Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation to automatically synchronize images with scans and tie scans into total station measurements for seamless 3D point cloud integration. Users download and go – no processing is required.

Users can collect and visualize topographic survey data with detailed, high-precision scans. They can save time by checking data for integrity and relevance right in the field, thereby avoiding costly rework or returns. This allows users to benefit from better decisions with access to more detailed data when and where they need it.

The Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation can be combined with a range of software packages for the easy creation of customized 3D deliverables. It not only works with Leica Geosystems’ own software such as Leica Infinity, Leica MultiWorx for AutoCAD and Leica GeoMoS; but also with software developed by MicroSurvey and Listech, and many other third party developers.
