Trimble GEDO CE 2.0 – Trolley
The track measurement Trolley offers optimal productivity and flexibility. It performs geometry survey and as-built at various locations of existing railway lines such as: main line and siding tracks, connecting tracks, tramways, underground railways and industrial trucks. It can also performance clearance analysis and data acquisition for routing and modeling purpose.
MX50 – Mobile Mapping System
A laser affixed to a moving vehicle that scans surrounding 360 degrees (LiDAR technology). It measures objects by millions of points per second with centimeter absolute accuracy, quickly collecting every visual component in diverse environments. This technology has specific applications for use along rail corridors or rail yard where everything visible from the vehicle or trolley can be captured.
NavVis VLX3 – 3D Scanning
3D scanning allows our client to obtain 3D point clouds that are accurate up to a few millimeters. The new Navis technology surpasses our traditional scanners and can be used to capture detailed data on bridges and railyards along the rail line and anywhere accessible by foot.
Our rail-focused geomatics team has over 300 years of combined experience and an organizational structure optimized to support the planning, design, layout, development, and maintenance of freight and commuter railway.
Each of our offices have team members that are eRailSafe certified and all of our crews have completed in-house and owner-specific railway safety training, which means we can deploy people to site quickly and ensure that operations
Project Experience: Metrolinx Regional Express Rail (RER) 1,2, & 3
Metrolinx is undertaking a transformation of the GTHA GO rail network to expand its services from primarily commuter transport to a fully integrated rapid transit system providing reliable, efficient rail connections. The 10-year, $16 billion GO Regional Express Rail (RER) program will double GO train service at peak periods and quadruple off-peak service.
“By partnering with GeoVerra, Simpcw Resources LLP had the opportunity to work with industry leads in Geomatics expertise and scalability.
