You will leave with a practical understanding of how these issues impact the end deliverable provided to their client, as well as how to achieve the most precise result while still maintaining a maximum of efficiency and productivity.
08:00 – 10:00 hrs | Precise Leveling – Digital Levels Have Changed the Survey Industry Forever
The introduction of the original NA2000 digital by Wild Heerbrugg in 1999 has forever changed the way that we view precise leveling for our projects. This was followed by the DNA10/03 digital levels and we are now at the third generation of this technology with the introduction of the LS10/15 digital levels a few years ago. We will closely examine the utilization of this technology in both the field and office workflow. Equipment configuration, check and adjust and data acquisition methods will be outlined in detail. Once we have acquired the high-quality data, we must ensure proper handling of the data or it would be meaningless. The session will end with an examination of processing the level lines and networks in the Leica Infinity software.
10:15 – 12:15 hrs | HDS U - Processing Reality Capture data from the Construction site in 3DReshaper
3D Reshaper is an extremely powerful point processing software for 3D modeling, meshing tools, inspections, monitoring, volumes, comparing data, and isolating surface data. Its many tools and great reporting structure create meaningful and accurate deliverables for clients. Insight into these valuable tools will teach attendees how to maximize the software for their own jobs. Learn to easily process your reality capture data in 3DReshaper and create deliverables for things like Flatness, Levelness, Plumbness, Slope analysis, or comparing your reality capture to a model and quantifying deviation as a distance and/or a volume.
13:00 – 17:00 hrs | HDS U - Ground Truthing & Surface Creation from Reality Capture Data Sources
3D Reshaper is an extremely powerful point processing software for 3D modeling, meshing tools, inspections, monitoring, volumes, comparing data, and isolating surface data. Its many tools and great reporting structure create meaningful and accurate deliverables for clients.

Points clouds created by sensors in the Reality Capture basket can be combined in one single Leica software. Each sensor having different uses and specifications, produces varying levels of accuracy which potentially affects how data sources are merged. This hands-on session will analyze and combine data from multiple sensors including different file formats and illustrate best work flow practices. You will learn QA/QC techniques for large integrated datasets.
15:15 – 17:15 hrs | RTK GNSS Best Practices and More…
During this session we will investigate some of the documented best practices for surveying with RTK. These are well established and vary a bit from one document to another, but do provide a reasonable standard for RTK collection practices. As we move forward with the GNSS modernization, the addition of more satellites in newer constellations, as well as additional signal sources provide many advantages for us to utilize. We are often able to achieve better results in more difficult locations than in the past such as tree canopy. Furthermore, we are seeing faster acquisition of the satellites and resolution of the ambiguities which lead to more productivity in the field. Tilt sensors now permit unprecedented productivity in the data acquisition without sacrifice in precision. With these great advances with GNSS, we may challenge ourselves and our best practices moving forward.
