Surveying Solutions for the Railway Industry

Geoiden

Geoiden provides surveying solutions based on the Geo Office software and GeoPad field software. For rail measurements, the company has introduced the VF Rail Survey Trolley.

Surveying system for railway tracks

The VF Rail Survey Trolley can be quickly and easily calibrated on-site, and provides fast measurements to reduce time spent on railway tracks.

It weighs approximately 20kg and allows for cable-free communications via Bluetooth, wireless local area network (WLAN) or radio depending on the logger, sensor, prism or GPS being used.

VF Rail Survey Trolley identifies track position errors and creates files (xx.ver or xx.abl) ready to use in tampering machines. This can be done directly in the field from GeoPad, or in the office via Geo office.
VF Rail Survey Trolley weighs approximately 20kg (depending on your choice of logger, prism and GPS) and is easy to handle.
As an option for safe transport, the company can deliver VF Rail Survey Trolley in a case (1.61m x 0.56m x 0.3m) made from marine-grade plywood with steel corners, flip-handles and wheels.
GeoPad field software covers all the needs for a surveyor at work. The programme also has a number of features for special measurement applications, such as the VF Rail Survey Trolley.
Theoretical track geometry (horizontal, vertical and cant) can be used in GeoPad to detect track position errors directly in the field. Post- processing of raw data can also be carried out in Geo Office.
After more than 30 years of development, the Geo Office software has several useful rail-related functions.

The trolley supplies real-time numeric and graphical information, simultaneous logging of GPS and total station data (if available), and external maps.

The system provides rail information including side offset, dH, cant, gauge, and alignment. Tamping information can be automatically generated on-site (in the form of an .ALC-file).

The trolley is compatible with robotic stations and GPS from Leica, Topcon and Sokkia. It also works with Trimble, Ashtech, Altus, Septentrio, Hemisphere, Penmap and Thales GPS systems, as well as National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) data readers for undefined sensors.

Office software for railway surveying tasks

One of the world’s most modern and powerful surveying packages, the company’s Geo Office software offers a simple structure with numerous advanced features for all surveying tasks.

The user-friendly software provides a comprehensive report generator, as well as additional modules for alignments, volume calculation, terrain models, point clouds, tunnel surveying and network adjustment.

Geo Office has been translated into several languages and used in more than 20 countries worldwide.

GeoPad field software

The trolley offers GeoPad field software for any Windows® XP, mobile / pocket PC or consumer electronics device.

The software is compatible with sensors from several leading instrument manufacturers, and uses the same simple structure file formats as in GEO.

GeoPad has a large number of reference models for applications, including road and rail, tunnel surveying, and point-and-line stakeout solutions. The programme also has a number of features for special measurement, where VF Rail Survey Trolley is one of several.
