Geosystems Sub-tracks

Surveying, Infrastructure and Construction

With an extensive portfolio of solutions for surveying and infrastructure projects, customers will learn about the latest product developments and attend innovative presentations made by professionals using Leica Geosystems solutions. Hands-on training will be available using total stations, MultiStation and GNSS and experts involved in product development and fellow users will be available for discussion. View Surveying, Infrastructure and Construction sessions for more information.

Laser Scanning/HDS

The Laser Scanning/HDS sub-track originated as the annual “Leica Geosystems HDS Worldwide User Conference,” held in San Ramon, California, USA, starting in 2005. In 2011 this highly regarded event was merged into the inaugural Hexagon international conference as its Laser Scanning/HDS (High-Definition Surveying) sub-track. Today, this popular sub-track features: >40 high-quality presentations by leading users and Leica HDS staff on timely topics; special “mini-tracks” on scanning for Plants/Ships, Buildings/BIM, Heritage and Forensics; >20 hands-on, expert-led training workshops; the popular “HDS Plan Contest” showcasing creative HDS deliverables from users around the world; very latest product demos; and, the very best networking opportunities available anywhere for laser scanning/HDS users. This sub-track also provides valuable information and contacts for those considering getting into laser scanning. Hundreds of conference attendees participate annually in this very popular sub-track.
