InterGEO 2017: Day 2

Wednesday 27 September 2017

20170927_075940

Train station at Zoo, waiting to ride 4 stops to Messe

20170927_082541

Same as yesterday

20170927_085751

GeoZone two story booth. Pretty cool!

20170927_085754

???

20170927_085828

Forest IT Design

20170927_085911

This booth is pretty cool. The front has a cabin with a food cart.

20170927_085924

Gexcel has pixel software and wearable lidar

20170927_090019

I don’t know what they make, but it looked cool!

20170927_090042

Velodyne is the leading mobile LIDAR sensor manufacturer.

20170927_090048

20170927_090226

So, I blew it.

20170927_090239

By the time I figured out there was a historic instrument museum in Berlin, I had no time to run over and check it out. I won’t make this mistake in 3 years when I return next.

20170927_090421

I wanted to purchase this, but I think the German would be more than I could bite off on.

20170927_090428

“Development of Instrument Building”

20170927_090437

“Surveying History”

20170927_090617

Trimble had the entire back of one hall, with AllTerra on the left, Trimble on the right, Nikon back and Spectra back right.

20170927_09063120170927_090700

20170927_090709

I spent 45 minutes playing around with the new Nikon ‘Auto Focus’ manual total stations. There are several modes of operation, but I am pretty sure that I am going to purchase a new TS for myself (like personally). Auto focus is worth having and the new guns are beautiful. Yes, the locks are back!

20170927_090715

I think this company deploys GNSS CORS stations.

20170927_090757

One comment for exhibitors is that I should be able to figure out what you do by looking at your booth. ‘Ahead with Precision’ does not an explanation make.

20170927_090815

I like the orange color and they had a lot of cool UAV’s.

20170927_090858

Gas powered UAV’s look a lot more interesting to me.

20170927_090917

I really want one of these forward looking rotary LIDAR platforms.

20170927_09093920170927_092734

20170927_092759

Unfortunately my picture of the front of the cabin did not focus, sorry.

20170927_092804

More cloud / point / pix processing

20170927_092805

20170927_092811

???

20170927_092820

Another food cart!

20170927_092828

COWI supplies DEMS and Orthos for Europe.

20170927_092846

Back to the Diamond, ‘Ahead with Precision’ booth

20170927_092917

Nobody actually uses these location stickers on the floor. A waste of time.

20170927_092956

So, I think that this Trimble company provides correction services in Europe. It is a cool looking booth.

20170927_093002

Back to the auto focus total stations. I really-really need_want one. You do too.

20170927_100519

Go Big rotary UAV or GO HOME. It is a big box too.

20170927_100852

It was my real pleasure to meet Huiming Song. He owns HowayGis and is partners with eGPS. Based in Georgia, he also has a company that makes choke ring antennas (Atlanta RFTech). Huiming is a really nice guy.

20170927_104044

More UAV, with Velodyne LIDAR

20170927_104115

Delair has Aerial Intelligence which we can all use more of.

20170927_104153

More RR inspection carts

20170927_104159

Something to do with traffic monitoring and mapping.

20170927_112606

20170927_112715

So, this is not a real tool. Basically these guys put every single instrument imaginable on a 4-wheeler just to grab your eye. It works.

20170927_113125

More UAV, this one has blades top and bottom

20170927_113138

I did not understand.

20170927_113347

Fixed Wing UAV

20170927_113518

Ok, gift time.

20170927_113535

I really need one of these

20170927_113611

Panono 360 spherical cameras. I think they are made right in Berlin

20170927_113619

which is great because I am ready to fly back for dinner at the HB again.

20170927_113624

You know that I am serious about purchasing one when I…

20170927_113630

Take pictures of every page….

20170927_113633

in the brochure

20170927_113638

It will hold 600 images internally.

20170927_113646

36 cameras, Single capture for 108 MP image

20170927_113649

20170927_113801

UAV Insurance.

20170927_113808

Mejzlik makes REALLY strong propellars

20170927_113925

Look, not even this fat guy can break one!

20170927_11393720170927_113944

20170927_114114

I have no idea what this was

20170927_114127

Now, this is neat. It is a small cylindar that you place on your drone. if it decides that your UAV has failed it will jettison the parachute and safely bring your UAV to the ground

20170927_114131

I have a movie that I will put online in a 4th blog post.

20170927_114239

More point cloud pix processing

20170927_114247

More UAVs

20170927_114310

Epson UAV’s

20170927_114316

I personally saw this UAV fly. It is VTOL and it works GREAT. Fully autonomous flight.

20170927_114410

Simple to setup flights, simple to fly because the device makes all of the decisions. I really want one of these.

20170927_114444

More UAV’s with the promise of business intelligence!

20170927_114451

Google glasshole from brother. I guess the world does need this.

20170927_114455

More UAV

20170927_114501

Big UAV, but this is a printed magazine.

20170927_114513

Okay, who could resist

20170927_114528

taking a picture of themselves? Not me obviously! Proof of how hot I really am.

20170927_114542

Sorry, I don’t know….

20170927_114935

This is not the right VTOL design in my opinion.

20170927_120614

do not touch, do not open.

20170927_120618

This is a Volkswagen pickup. Do they sell these in the USA?

20170927_12065020170927_12070720170927_12071120170927_12074220170927_12083320170927_12105320170927_121646

It is always a GREAT day when you meet Sarah Winters! She showed me a lot of new features coming in the V6 of SurvCE

20170927_135922

Carlson’s new mine scanner.

20170927_135929

So, you drill a hole from the surface into a cavern. Then you push this into the hole, then the motorized head scans the cavity. It is like IP99

20170927_140226

I will have a separate video section. This is the GEOSLAM booth which was pretty cool.

20170927_140331

20170927_152109

Hard to resist photobombing Gavin

20170927_153402

In the GINTEC booth I found this Geoelectron radio. Supposedly it has FCC certification. It is a nice package

20170927_153813

GINTEC is a subbrand of Unistrong.

20170927_153836

They sell the same receiver as Carlson, but with a BD970 engine.

20170927_154401
