Multiple Field Applications


Easily collect land data by using the Quick Measure and Auto-Focus feature on any surveying project.


Improve survey time by using the reflectorless measurement functionality and collect data up to 800 m away.


Reduce project delays by processing the data straight on the field and accurately plot the curves as you go.

Multiple Field Applications


Easily record data for varying forestry applications such as tree heights, canopy areas, and stockpile volumes.

Utility Surveys

Shorten measuring times for  spans and clearances, attachment heights, and vegetation management.

Public Works

Use GPS/GNSS laser offsets for quick land use planning, asset mapping, and inventory documentation.
