The British Embassy in Chile will play host to a showcase of the latest developments and technical innovations in laser scanning. Organised through UK Trade and Investment the free to attend forum will feature demonstrations of the leading laser scanning monitoring system SiteMonitor as well as the world’s first truly mobile, hand held, rapid laser mapping system ZEB1.

Mr Carlos Escudero, co-founder of Santiago based GEOCOM commented, “Surveying, geotechnical measurements and geodesy are thriving industries in Chile and the recent advancements in laser scanning and monitoring are of huge interest to the mining, exploration, construction and mapping communities. This event will provide a marvellous opportunity for anyone with an interest in laser scanning to get hands on with some of the most advanced solutions currently on the market.”
