Spectra Geospatial, Aplitop partner on tunneling survey solution

Spectra Geospatial is partnering with Aplitop for a comprehensive tunnel survey solution designed to increase productivity for survey service providers.

According to the companies, the collaboration provides surveyors and geospatial professionals with a complete hardware and software solution for performing efficient tunnel construction surveys.

Through the partnership, the Spectra Focus 35 robotic total station will be integrated with the workflows of the Aplitop TcpTUNNEL, running on the ST10 or Ranger 7 data collector. This will enable surveyors to perform excavation control, automated survey and stakeout of tunnel cross-sections, the companies said.

In the office, data and designs can be transferred seamlessly between TcpTUNNEL CAD, a plug-in for several CAD platforms, and TcpTUNNEL field software.

The Spectra Geospatial and Aplitop solution provides a full featured workflow for tunnel constructions surveys including definition of project design elements; tunnel drill and blast setout and reporting on the difference; automated data collection; accurate stake-out-of-key design features and anchor belts; and graphical reporting of the differences between design and survey data.

“Collaborating with Aplitop enables Spectra Geospatial to provide customers with a world-class tunneling solution to increase productivity working in underground environments,” said Olivier Casabianca, vice president at Spectra Geospatial. “The combination improves the tunnel construction process by providing customers with increased confidence in the field and streamlining final deliverable creation in the office.”
