GeoSLAM Zeb Locate Operation and Workflows

 

In this video, Seiler Design Solutions will introduce you to the GeoSLAM Zeb Locate system.

The GeoSLAM Zeb Locate utilizes the powerful Zeb Horizon scanner with its 100m range and 300,000 point per second scan capability, mounted to a backpack system along with a GNSS system to correlate your scan to real world locations.

AEC Collection and Trimble SiteVision - Model Creation and Visualization

Trimble SiteVision is a user-friendly outdoor augmented reality system that brings data to life and allows you to place and view georeferenced 3D models from any angle at true-to-life scale—above or below the ground. Creating that data can sometimes be a challenge.

Trimble SiteVision - Visualize Your 3D Model Data

Imagine if you could visualize your 3D design data in the real world, even though it only exists as a design model. Trimble® recently introduced SiteVision™ which is a user-friendly outdoor augmented reality system that brings your 3D design data to life so you can visualize, explore and understand the impact of your design in the real world.

SiteVision combines hardware and software in an integrated, lightweight handheld or pole-mounted solution.
