<p><strong>Norcross, Ga. &mdash; July 13&nbsp;</strong><br />The Leica HDS6000 3-D laser scanner now has pulsed its way into the Canadian market. </p><p>Leica Geosystems delivered Canada&#39;s first Leica HDS6000 high-definition scanner to Point Geomatics, a laser-scanning service company based in Calgary, Alberta. </p><p>The sale not only marks the next-generation scanner&#39;s first foray into Canada &mdash; it&#39;s a significant testament to the steadily growing high-definition laser-scanning movement in Canada. &nbsp;<br /><br />&quot;Delivering the HDS6000 to Point Geomatics is very exciting for us because this new technology stands to usher in a whole new era in the laser scanning business,&quot; said Peter Hettstedt, Leica Geosystems Canada vice president and general manager. &quot;Point Geomatics is one of the premier laser scanner service providers in Canada. We&#39;re very proud that they&#39;ve selected Leica Geosystems for their equipment needs, and we hope to continue our strong working relationship for many years to come.&quot; </p><p>Replacing the popular Leica HDS4500 scanner, the compact Leica HDS6000 offers several major technological advances such as new tilt sensing, higher point accuracies and 50 percent greater range designed to increase the versatility, portability and productivity of ultra high-speed, phase-based laser scanning for many as-built survey applications. </p><p>Chris Tucker, Point Geomatics president, said the technological advancements of the Leica HDS6000 would enable his company to offer better efficiency and better solutions to his clients. </p><p>Point Geomatics has been an exclusively Leica laser-scanning service company for the past three years. <br /><br />&quot;Leica Geosystems is the benchmark by which all other survey instruments have been measured,&quot; Tucker said. &quot;The HDS6000 can acquire half a million points a second, and it runs 250 times faster than my previous Leica scanner. </p><p>&quot;With engineering companies beginning to recognize the value in laser scanning efficiency and data detail, the increased efficiency, productivity and survey information provided by the HDS6000 is a significant selling point to those customers.&quot;&nbsp; </p><p>Hettstedt agrees. </p><p>&quot;Laser scanning has really started to become mainstream to the point where many customers who are offering this service are needing to order second and third scanners to keep up with the demand,&quot; Hettstedt said.</p><p>Having just landed in Alberta, the next-generation scanner is already heading east &mdash; Hettstedt said Queens University in Kingston, Ontario has also ordered the Leica HDS6000.&nbsp;&nbsp; </p>
