Technology Spotlight

In areas where GPS is ineffective, multiVIEW uses Trimble's Robotic Total Station (RTS). RTS increases efficiency by maintaining a consistent lock with the mobile data collector which enables seamless field data collection. It is incorporated into the Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) process and used to survey utility line work and appurtenances. Real-life physical data is then transformed into a geodetic digital format. multiVIEW uploads the data into a CAD package and it is automatically aligned onto our Customer’s base map, presented as a 2D or 3D model. Data can also be displayed as a Geographic Information System (GIS) model through Esri’s ArcGIS software.
