TruPulse Mapping Accuracies

by scolburn 20. April 2021 16:36

A long-standing mapping customer of ours, who own all our various TruPulse models, asked if we could summarize the expected accuracies of each model for positioning objects in the field. They suspected that some of the models and some of the methods they used may not meet the needs of certain projects. They did not want to risk collecting data outside of the proposed error tolerance they had to work with. We decided to build a table listing each model and the corresponding mapping methods that applied to them, so they could easily see the possible error contribution of the laser and method they were using.

  • TruPulse 200, 200B, 200X: measures Distance and Tilt
  • TruPulse 360, 360B, 360R: measures Distance, Tilt and Azimuth
  • TruPulse with TruAngle: measures Distance, Tilt and Angle

To do this, we first determined the expected or “typical” accuracy of the laser rangefinder when measuring to ordinary objects at normal distances. As expected, we found this to be better than our published accuracy, which we like to be conservative with to cover the weaker, less common targets. We used the published specs for the Tilt, Azimuth and Angle sensors as they represent typical accuracies already.More...

Zeno Mobile Expands LaserGIS® Accessibility

by TNyland 17. March 2021 15:06

GIS professionals and field crews rely on the use of Global Positioning Satellites (GPS) and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) antennas, designed to receive specific signals for accurate feature and asset location data. However, satellite signals can be easily compromised by man-made features and Earth’s natural assets.

"Assets in places such as a busy roadway or under dense tree canopy can make it difficult for users to capture location information accurately, safely, and efficiently," said Derrick Reish, Senior Product Manager at Laser Tech (LTI). The TruPulse® laser rangefinder series enables users to accurately measure assets without having to physically occupy the location. Using this offset workflow, crews can work quickly, accurately, and efficiently.

The November 2020 release of Leica Zeno Mobile introduces new compatible sensors and workflows with DISTOs and TruPulse laser rangefinders. The Leica Geosystems and Laser Tech integration creates a new guided workflow for users to integrate a TruPulse laser rangefinder into their workflow and achieve centimeter accuracy in GNSS impaired environments, while improving one’s efficiency and safety in the field. This integration also supports Leica Zeno FLX100 Smart Antenna, a compact, simple to use, and flexible antenna for everyone. See below for workflow routines.More...

Woodland Park Zoo Receives a Mapping Promotion with Laser Offset Mapping

by TNyland 8. July 2019 10:24

Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington ranks second for exhibition honors by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, opening their 92-acre of impeccable exhibit doors to over 1.3 million guests each year. There is no doubt that Woodland Park Zoo constantly evolves their exhibits to achieve such a high number of honors, and achieving these honor-worthy exhibits is no easy task. Every new exhibit requires modifications to the zoo's infrastructure including possible irrigation valves, water lines, and underground gas line changes.

"With every new exhibit comes changes in how the utilities and infrastructure are laid out," said lead gardener Dann Block.

Previously, Block had to acquire measurements within the exhibit when planning infrastructure changes for a new exhibit, limiting animals to their sleeping quarters which caused disruption to their daily routines.

Among the struggle to minimize disruptions for the zoo’s animals, Block was dealing with outdated maps and blueprints. Using hand drawn 1950s maps, CAD, and as-builts, mixed with several tools used for location intelligence over the years, created a questionable map of the zoo's true infrastructure. Block found himself digging holes only to discover an unexpected object in his path far too often, pursuing Block to create a new, and accurate depiction of the zoo. More...
