FOCUS 30 Robotic Total Stations: Saskatchewan bridges in better shape | GeoConnexion


curated by | December 5, 2014

Building and repairing bridges is a continuing important task for Canada Bridge, a division of Minty’s Moving.  In the often isolated regions that Scott Gullacher, engineer and project manager, works, the survey methods have until recently relied on rudimentary devices, including tape measure, string line, plumb bob, laser level and rod.

Now with the acquisition of the Spectra Precision FOCUS 30 total station, a fully motorized robotic solution, bridge positioning and elevations are achieved with a new level of accuracy and efficiency.
