Imaging station "IS" is introduced as follows.
Topcon's “IS” is a new type of total station that adds a 3D scanning capability to the conventional total station. Scanning can be performed at speeds of 20 points per second, and this power is exhibited in activities such as surveying, civil engineering work, and natural disaster recording. Measurements can be made within a range of 16. 25 to 6, 500 ft (5 to 2, 000 m) from the installation point, and measurement ranges are easily set based on images photographed by the built-in cameras. The acquired data can be used for design/construction schedule control of large-scale land developments such as airports and dams.
