Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation delivers first exact 3D scan of the Mont Blanc ice cap http://www.leica-geosystems.com/en/Le... Reaching the top of Mont Blanc, Europe's highest peak, is a formidable challenge even to the most experienced alpinists - not only because of its elevation, but also because of its weather conditions. Strong winds and snowfall at the summit constantly cause altitude changes to the summit's ice and snow cap. Such changes motivate expert surveyors to try out the latest in measurement technology, like the Chartered Land Surveyors located in the Upper Savoy region in France as well as two surveyors from Leica Geosystems France. For their seventh expedition, they decided to make the first ever 3D laser scan of the shape and volume of this legendary glacier using the Leica Nova MS50 MultiStation.
