Esri CityEngine Brings Modeling
CityEngine 2013 3D urban design software enables modeling technology to be used in popular 3D software such as Autodesk Maya, 3ds Max, and SketchUp. Importing OpenStreetMap streets into a project can jump-start a smart 3D city model. It also provides the ability to create rule packages to help you promote and share your work. Once content has been exported to a web scene, it can be uploaded directly to ArcGIS Online or to your own server.

3D Laser Mapping Zebedee
3D Laser Mapping will distribute the world's first, truly mobile, hand held, rapid laser mapping system. Developed by CSIRO, Australia's national science agency, the Zebedee indoor mapper allows for fast data capture, without complex set up or the requirement for lengthy data processing. The Zebedee system includes a lightweight laser scanner mounted on a simple spring mechanism. As the operator moves through an environment the scanner loosely oscillates about the spring producing a rotation that converts 2D measurements into 3D fields of view.

InVest in the Best
Designed by a surveyor for surveyors, the newest utility Class 2 Survey/Engineer Safety Vest design, "The Party Chief", surpasses ANSI requirements and features utility functionality that in turn enhanced safety for the worker. The design is more contoured and shaped to fit the body that avoids getting hung up on passing objects. Full mirrored pocket design with the same utility pockets, inside book and trough pockets, covered elastic pen holders, and knuckle side fleece lined hand pockets for the cold days, on both sides of the vest.
