Maptek announced the I-Site SR3, a 600-m-range laser scanner. The R3 series is 30% smaller and 25% lighter than predecessor technology, with 2.5 times faster data acquisition than the company’s I-Site 8000 scanners, Maptek reported. The scanner weighs 9.6 kilograms (kg) and is accurate to 4 mm. High-resolution laser scans collect detailed data for geological and geotechnical face mapping.

Whatever the orientation of the scanner, integrated leveling automatically corrects scans before processing, Maptek reported.
