Partnership will allow Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner to take advantage of Matterport’s cloud based technology

Leica Geosystems has teamed up with Matterport to develop a fast, simple solution for creating, modifying, distributing, and navi-gating immersive 3D and digital images.

The partnership is focused on integrating the new Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner and encompassing Multivista’s construction progress documentation services into Matterport’s cloud-based platform. The solution is designed to offer an easy, flexible and automated way of capturing detailed images and using the resulting data to create immersive 3D visualisations.

“With our new partnership with Matterport, combined with our recent acquisition of Multivista, we are fulfilling our commitment to supporting the AEC industry and bringing the sector added value,” said Hexagon Geosystems President Juergen Dold. “As AEC professionals continue to progress their work in the Design, Build and Maintain (DBM) lifecycle, we are there with them supplying the solutions they need to achieve their goals. With this latest offering, these professionals can now easily visual-ise their projects to shape the change needed in a digital reality for real world advancements, leading to reduced costs and increased time savings.”

Leica Geosystems and Matterport expect to deliver the integrated solution to the AEC market in 2018.
