Becker Geomatics chooses Laser-Scan for data quality on the move

September 7, 2006 -- Laser-Scan is delighted to announce that Becker Geomatics has selected its Radius Mobile™ solution for accurate spatial data capture and dynamic maintenance in the field.

Becker Geomatics collect, provide and manage spatial data that can be used as a basis for design and construction. They needed to replace their existing data capture systems, and after evaluating several solutions first hand were impressed by a demonstration from Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) showing Radius Mobile in action. Becker Geomatics discovered that Radius Mobile offers the most cost-effective and efficient method of data capture and field input directly into a database. They have purchased Radius Mobile with FME, meaning that they can work natively in a variety of industry-standard file formats and provided the capabilities and flexibility that they needed for new and varied projects.

As part of the Radius Suite, Radius Mobile allows the user to update their spatial data directly on the latest version and perform survey construction and calculations in real time, enabling a ‘finish in the field’ approach. Becker Geomatics will also be able to take advantage of fully integrating their map maintenance with the surveying process, and achieve instant quality assurance on geometry and spatial data attributes.

David Crawford, Chief Surveyor, Becker Geomatics commented:

"We considered various systems but were particularly impressed by Radius Mobile’s ability to handle all the data formats we use, its extensive mapping functionality, the survey equipment plug-in options, and its powerful scripting options. The scripting routines in particular, gave us the confidence to choose Mobile for our current needs and the ability to tailor the system for whatever the future may hold."

Duncan Guthrie, Managing Director of Laser-Scan, added:

"The increasing use of spatial data in the field places even more pressure on organisations to employ strict data quality regimes. Controls are essential to ensure that such rapidly changing data is both fit for purpose and re-used across a wider user community. Laser-Scan is delighted that we are able to provide Becker Geomatics with the appropriate solutions to address these issues and support their mobile operations."
