HERON® is the only system on the market capables to support a real time change detection.
If you are surveying a site where a tripod laser scanner or a HERON® survey has been already realized (and then loaded into the HERON® memory), during the new survey you will automatically see on your control unit screen the geometric changes that HERON® will show in red. This means that HERON® is not only a 3D mapping system, but also a monitoring device. A typical example of the useful application of this unique function is the use of this technology to highlight geometric variations inside of an industrial site. The surveyor can walk along the industrial site and when HERON® highlights the presence of differences, a high resolution scan is carried on and then the high resolution point cloud automatically registered in the same reference system of the HERON® point cloud.
