RST Global Communications declared that it has formed a digital mapping and engineering solutions company, known as RST GEO, which is intended at supporting customers to enhance their bottom line.
It is stated that, RST GEO's technology can be used for offering construction mapping for utilities, oil and gas, railroads, highway planning, asset management and many other industry sectors. Its mobile spatial imaging system can tackle the work in a fraction of the time and cost. The technology helps minimize staff field hours, while guaranteeing design platform creation in less time than competitors.
Jon Owen, president of RST GEO said, Our ability to capture point clouds and high-resolution digital imagery and transform them into geospatial intelligence minimizes how long it takes to complete a project, increasing efficiency and reducing risk. For example, a 23-mile route might typically take three or four people up to three weeks to complete, but it can now be done by one person in less than a day. Businesses and consumers can ultimately access, analyze, and share data more effectively.
The Shelby, N.C.-based company make use of LiDAR and mobile spatial imaging technology featuring imaging sensors, a 360-degree panoramic camera and productivity software. This generates highly accurate, geo-referenced, dense datasets that transform into information-rich 3D models.
Itis the first company in North America to utilize the Trimble MX2 system and outsource the technology to benefit interested organizations. Whether improving infrastructure, asset management or geospatial mapping, RST GEO services are ideal for companies like CSX Corp., Duke Energy, SCANA Corp. and the North Carolina Department of Transportation, said RST GEO, The new firm is a natural extension of its growing fiber-optic company, RST Fiber.
Dan Limerick, co-founder and CEO of RST Global said, From road corridors, facilities and large fields, to design and construction firms, railway mapping, transmission power line scans and telecommunication fiber networks, this technology has tremendous benefit. Few companies have invested in a mobile surveying system because of the high cost of acquiring and operating one, so our services will fill an important gap in the marketplace.
