Our surveyors proved once again that they can get through the toughest of tasks!
19th November 2013 was a memorable day for the survey community and Leica Geosystems. It was the VIP opening day of Leica’s new headquarters in Milton Keynes and the Leica team put on an interesting day packed full of history, current and future plans and finished it off with a guest speaker from the Red Bull Formula One marketing team. The Red Bull team use Hexagon Metrology (Leica Geosystems parent company) to machine and inspect parts for their Formula One racing cars. Storm Geomatics were used in a presentation on the same day to demonstrate how the MS50 Laser scanner could be put to use on a ship canal basin.
