Simplifying Complexity with Scanning

Foth Infrastructure Environment used the Trimble SX10, R10 and several other Trimble products to capture survey data for a complex assignment they were tasked with for the Cedar River Flood Control System (CRFCS) project in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. CRFCS was building a combination of permanent and removable flood walls, levees and gates along 11km of the river’s banks.

Students Scan the Past to Preserve the Future

Researchers and students in France want to immortalize the work of New Zealand soldiers who during World War I connected a network of abandoned chalk quarries to create a passage for allied soldiers to move underground. The researchers used the Trimble TX8, TX5, and Trimble RealWorks to capture a permanent digital record of the tunnels.
