HxGN LIVE 2015 – Great stories continue with the Hexagon Geosystems Track

11 December 2014

(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 11 December 2014) – HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s annual international conference and exhibition, goes global in 2015 with two locations- 1 – 4 June in Las Vegas and 18-20 November in Hong Kong – featuring the Hexagon Geosystems Track.

Customers, partners and the global brand network of Hexagon will all come together to shape the way we work and live. This premiere conference highlights the latest trends in information, measurement and visualisation technologies fostering discussion, ideas and solutions toward creating a better and smarter world.

In Las Vegas, enjoy four exciting days packed with exclusive technology previews, a showcase of best practices, motivating keynotes, top-notch social events, unlimited networking and much more. Then travel across the globe to experience one conference in two locations as HxGN LIVE offers a double dose of inspiring presentations, engaging trainings and must-see technologies for the first time in Hong Kong.

Register for Las Vegas at the special Priority rate until 12 January 2015.

The Hexagon Geosystems Track, starring solutions and products from Leica Geosystems, Z/I Imaging, Aibotix and other brands of the Hexagon Geosystems family, will feature more than 100 presentations incorporating compelling user testimonials, reports on industry trends, new technology previews, interactive technical demonstrations, training classes and special networking opportunities.

The Geosystems track is conveniently organised into four sub-tracks:

  • Surveying & Infrastructure
    With an extensive portfolio of solutions for surveying and infrastructure projects, customers will learn about the latest product developments and attend innovative presentations made by professionals using Leica Geosystems solutions. Hands-on training will be available using total stations, MultiStation and GNSS and experts involved in product development and fellow users will be available for discussion.
  • HDS/3D Laser Scanning
    The Laser Scanning/HDS sub-track originated as the annual “Leica Geosystems HDS Worldwide User Conference,” held in San Ramon, California, USA, starting in 2005. In 2011 this highly regarded event was merged into the inaugural Hexagon international conference as its Laser Scanning/HDS (High-Definition Surveying) sub-track. Today, this popular sub-track features:  >40 high-quality presentations by leading users and Leica HDS staff on timely topics; special “mini-tracks” on scanning for Plants/Ships, Buildings/BIM, Heritage and Forensics; >20 hands-on, expert-led training workshops; the popular “HDS Plan Contest” showcasing creative HDS deliverables from users around the world; very latest product demos; and, the very best networking opportunities available anywhere for laser scanning/HDS users. This sub-track also provides valuable information and contacts for those considering getting into laser scanning. Hundreds of conference attendees participate annually in this very popular sub-track.
  • Geospatial Solutions
    The market leader in geospatial mapping technology will showcase new developments and unique applications across the world's most comprehensive portfolio of airborne, UAV and mobile mapping solutions. Complete workflows from sensors to solutions demonstrate state-of-the-art technologies in all steps from data capturing, post processing to information generation. Attendees will learn about the latest developments of tridicon's automated 3D city modelling, experience UAV live demos with Aibot X6 and mobile mapping with a new Pegasus system, and see next product generation of airborne imaging sensors, topo-, shallow water and deep sea bathy LiDAR systems.
  • Machine Control & Construction
    Machine Control systems offer valuable material cost savings, on-site safety and high accuracy resulting in increased efficiency, higher productivity and lower fuel consumption. Customers will learn how equipment can become integrated and have seamless workflows with the latest smart iCON solutions by Leica Geosystems.
