What is High Definition Surveying?
The term HDS represents more than terrestrial laser scanning alone, as scanning is only one component of the HDS concept.
HDS embodies everything involved in the process of capturing data, from software to workflow to training to output-it describes an entire process, not just a tool. The process includes data capture and data utilization. The biggest changes HDS promises to bring to the industry are threefold: the high speed of data collection increased safety to users, and most importantly, the high level of detail.
In regard to safety, HDS systems survey remotely, which allows hard-to-reach or dangerous terrains to be captured safely and with a minimum of interruption.
High-Definition Surveying benefits both surveyor and engineer, and promises to establish faster, safer and higher quality data capture as a new industry standard in data capturing.
High Definition Surveying Instruments
The first of its breed and the first to be developed specifically for surveyors, the pulse-based RTC360 and Pxx Series laser system includes such standard features as an instrument set up over a known point, instrument orientation, and optical leveling.
Scans can be quickly and easily geo-referenced and set up to known coordinate systems. The physical appearance of the RTC360 and Pxx Series sets itself apart from any other instrument in the surveying market as well. Its rugged housing looks and feels like a total station, albeit a total station on steroids.
As software is a major component to the success or failure of any workflow, so too is the software of the HDS concept.
The previous success of Cyclone software for the progressive surveyor is now enhanced and tailored for HDS in a 2020 version, offering its users more features designed specifically for the surveyor, like support for station and alignment rotation; onscreen measure and display; and export into many popular surveying and land development formats. Cyclone’s unique “Virtual Surveyor” has also been updated, now providing cut/fill volume calculations and cut/fill deviation controls. It can also sample TIN surfaces to grids.
