  • Sustaining an airport's health
    Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, has been known as the world’s busiest passenger airport for the past 15 years, with more than 2,700 flights coming and going and serving more than 250,000 passengers daily. Preparing for future trends in Written by Katherine Lehmuller transportation, the airport has recently added new facilities and boasts a complex consisting of seven concourses and five runways, with the longest at close to 12,000 feet (approximately 3,600 metres). The entire infrastructure encompasses more than 4,700 acres (1,900 hectares).

     
  • Mapping the last frontier
    Alaska is the least densely populated yet largest state in the United States. Well-known for its diverse landscape and cold weather, travelling can be difficult during winter months. In the northern parts of the state, where tundra is vast and winter climate is harsh, use of ice roads are popular and necessary for transporting resources. Because the state has more than 3 million lakes that are larger than 20 acres in size, a clear understanding of the landscape is required to best determine where these roads could safely and sustainably be built. The Bureau of Economic Geology (the Bureau), a research unit at the University of Texas at Austin, set out to map a portion of this wild frontier and provide a better understanding of the local habitat, using the Leica Chiroptera airborne LiDAR system to survey the Alaskan Northern Slope.
     
  • SOS Shipbuilding on scans
    Imagine putting together a jigsaw puzzle of more than 30 million pieces. The instructions say to group these pieces into about 80 individual blocks, which will weigh up to 800 tonnes. Those blocks must be precisely placed together, offering passengers a safe and pleasant journey aboard a tremendous cruise liner. Once planned, you have less than one year to construct, all the while meeting budget constraints and exceeding customer expectations in quality. Welcome to the world of cruise ship building.
     
  • Wishing upon a laser
    What we see upon the silver screen can move us to tears, make us laugh until it hurts, and transport us from the everyday to faraway lands, ancient or future times and even to alternate realities. None of this, though, is possible without the expertise of the set decorator.
     
  • Turning data into knowledge with Jigsaw
    The Pueblo Viejo gold mine, in the Dominican Republic, is a joint venture between Barrick Gold and Gold Corp., which hold 60 per cent and 40 per cent ownership respectively. The mine is operated by Barrick Gold. Efficient fleet management and production optimisation is a priority.
     
  • Levelling the (cement) playing field
    Not all Original Equipment Manufactures (OEM) partnerships are created equal. When the Shandong Roadway Machinery Manufacturing Co., LTD, a firm specialising in production of machinery used in horizontal concrete placement, was looking for a competitive advantage for the company’s high level applications, it turned to Leica Geosystems iCON and other construction solutions. Finding a trusted partner, Roadway was able to equip its best-selling concrete paver, the Screed RWJP14, with a laser guided solution that enhance the concrete flatness and improves the customers productivity and efficiency.
     
  • Ensuring smooth flow
    Germany’s busy Kiel Canal has been used as an international shipping lane for more than 100 years. Linking the North Sea to the Baltic, the canal enables ships not only to save a distance of roughly 280 nautical miles but also to avoid the potentially dangerous storm ridden conditions of Denmark’s northern Jutland Peninsula - the coastal gale winds and increasingly difficult tidal changes of the Skagervak between Denmark and Norway.
     
  • Filling the need for survey speed
    Timely investments in new solutions help surveyors address the demand for increased accuracy and efficiency within tight budgets.
     
  • Digitising the mighty Taj Mahal
    The Taj Mahal, Arabic for crown of palaces, is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna River in the Indian city of Agra. Commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–1658), to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the tomb is the centrepiece of a 42-acre complex. Included in the complex are a mosque, guest house and formal gardens, all bounded by crenellated wall.
     
  • Overcoming from above
    With only 18 per cent of the country’s population living in urban centres, Papa New Guinea is one of the world’s most rural and unexplored countries. Dense with rainforest and other diverse ecological features, terrain is a constant obstacle for surveyors. Restricting access to key areas, measurement professionals must find innovative means to gather needed data.
     
  • Return to the high (definition surveying) seas
    Steeped in history, the Mary Rose was King Henry VIII’s Tudor warship. Built between 1509 - 1511, the Mary Rose was a successful warship and in Henry VIII’s possession for more than 34 years, nearly the entirety of his reign. Adapting with the naval demands of the time, the Mary Rose started out as a troop ship and ended as a gun ship. During Henry VIII’s reign, the Mary Rose fought in three wars, starting in battle in the first French War between 1512 and 1514 and ending in the third French War in 1545, her final battle.
     
  • Mobile mapping a disaster area
    On July 8, 2015, an Enhanced Fujita Scale (EFS) 4 tornado struck the Brenta River area of northern Italy, around the towns of Pianiga, Dolo and Mira. A famous feature of the area, the Venetian Villas were severely impacted, scattering them along the river region. Built in the 16th century and designed by the renowned architect Andrea Palladio from Padua, these classical forms draw thousands of tourists from all over the world every year. The area was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.
     
  • Lift off with MultiStations, robotic total stations
    Bolstering the newest NASA space launch system’s testing capabilities, the agency in charge of U.S. science and technology of airplanes or space is now using Leica Nova MS50 MultiStations. The fast, precise robotic total stations with integrated laser scanning capabilities will provide accurate deflection monitoring during comprehensive structural tests.
     
  • The Reality Capture of Ellis Island
    For 62 years, New York Bay’s small Ellis Island was the United States’ first and primary immigration inspection centre, processing more than 12 million immigrants from 1892 to 1954. Today, the island with its Main Immigration Building and many ancillary structures is a U.S. National Monument and receives 3.5 million plus visitors annually as part of the U.S. National Park Service (NPS).
