Hexagon presentations address Smart Data trends in the industry

October 12, 2016  - By

Hexagon’s technologies span the geospatial information life cycle from data capture to  information delivery. Its portfolio includes land and airborne sensors as well as GNSS receivers, complemented by software applications for data processing, interpretation and analysis. These tools not only display the world as it is, but model the world as it will be.

The company is making a range of presentations at Intergeo 2016, held Oct. 11-13 in Hamburg, Germany. Hexagon is focusing on delivery of geospatial information to facilitate mission- and business-critical decision making.

On the opening day of Intergeo 2016, Cathy Hayes — director of Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) at Intergraph — spoke on the company’s Smart Build program.

While construction companies have accelerated adoption of information technologies to help manage the complexity of multi-year planning efforts for million- and billion-dollar projects, many of these efforts have proven to be costly, complicated and more disruptive than helpful.

Smart Build is an application for the construction industry to improve profit margins and help complete projects safely, on time and on budget. Hayes presented background and case study material from some of the world’s largest and most challenging industrial projects.

Recent major construction projects involving Hexagon-owned Leica have included using GPS for high-accuracy monitoring and alignment of the 432 Park building in New York (tallest residential structure in the City), a similar project on the Lotte World Tower, a super-tall skyscraper in Korea, and using GPS to align the Gerald Desmond Bridge in Long Beach.

Other Hexagon presentations at Intergeo include:
