Area surveying – efficient. Precise. Professional.

LC:AREA

Precise and complete collection of area data – the requirements for land surveying in the agricultural sector have increased significantly in recent years. As such, a number of tasks need to be mastered.

For farmers or agricultural service providers, it was therefore important to develop legally compliant solution packages for accurate land registration, especially for the submission of the EU land application.

LACOS offers individual packages of hardware and software components that are specially designed to meet these requirements.

  • Capture, processing and evaluation of local GPS data
  • Measurement of different object types (points, lines, areas, collection points, islands)
  • Wireless recording takes place directly on site at the object
  • Support of different coordinate systems
  • Management of the objects in projects
  • Creation of templates for more targeted surveying work
  • Various functions for importing and exporting information
  • Tailored to the needs of farmers and agricultural service providers


Competences

  • No time-consuming installation and setup work in advance
  • Solution packages tailored to individual applications consisting of hardware and software components
  • Packages are oriented to accuracy gradations
  • Positional deviation of up to approx. 3 m, 1 m, < 10 cm
  • Data acquisition and processing meets the requirements of EU application conformity
