With two decades’ experience in geomatics engineering and 12 years in laser scanning, Frank Collazo teaches people to use laser scanners to solve problems. After earning a BS in Geomatics Engineering, Frank worked in the field and office for civil/survey companies for eight years. He used total stations, data collectors and GPS, working my way up from rod-man to party chief. He processed data to create maps, topos and TINS. He then spent five years in laser scanning, training Leica Geosystems’ HDS sales managers and customers, testing HDS hardware and software and interfacing with HDS developers and users. He also wrote the “Field Traverse, and Topographic Workflow” sections of the HDS Training Manuals and the “HDS Public Safety and Forensics Training Manual for Laser Scanning.” Today, as a mobile 3D reality capture consultant for Leica Geosystems, Frank works with AEC firms and public safety and security agencies to show them how to capture reality accurately and present it with the best methods.
