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.

Adjusting Power Line Sag in Real-Time

Geomatikk Survey was tasked with measuring and adjusting the sag of new, high-voltage power lines on a mountain in Sogn og Fjordane, a county in western Norway. By using Trimble’s SX10, they were able to cut their project work down to a single day because the sensor automatically locks on to the line itself, even with no prism, and adjusts their sag in real time.
