The ScanStation 3D laser scanning system from Leica Geosystems allows investigators to digitize and map a scene exactly how the first responder encountered it. The ScanStation sets up quickly indoors or outside and measures thousands of measurements per second to create a rich, detailed, 3D "point cloud." Features include a large field-of-view, high accuracy, long range, a scripting tool allowing users to define where detailed scans of evidence are required and a dual-axis compensator. 2D scene diagrams can be quickly created or complete 3D visualizations for compelling jury exhibits. Using Leica's free point cloud viewing software, point clouds can easily be shared with other investigators and prosecutors, even over the internet.
