GeoSLAM in action

“These are such amazing products. Saves so much time in measuring houses”.

Corey Jackson

Owner, Architectural Drafting & Design LLC

“What really stood out was the quality of information captured, which was easily incorporated into a BIM representation using REVIT software. The device was really easy to handle and it was remarkable how much detail we were able to capture in the point clouds. It enabled us to achieve a level of accuracy that would have been impossible with manual techniques.”

“The first improvement with the GeoSLAM laser scanner was time saving, you’re just walking at a relaxed pace through the building, and its doing the magic for you as far as capturing all of that data.
I don’t think that I’ve ever had one project where I got all the information that I needed, that’s another attractive piece about the GeoSLAM, that you can take one tool out into the field and get everything that you needed.
For us GeoSLAM was the perfect fit for architecture.”
