Recon Launch Press Release

A new name in spatial data capture has been launched in the form of New Zealand-owned Recon.

The Recon consultancy team will focus on surveying, UAV mapping, 3D scanning and data capture for modelling, bringing crucial field experience and a toolbox of the latest technology to client projects.

“We have seen unprecedented change in the construction sector over the last five years in terms of the depth of accurate spatial data available to engineers, civil contractors and survey professionals,” says Recon general manager, Jeremy Neilson.

“The accuracy and ease with which spatial data can be captured and how this can provide for a complete 360 degree view of any project regardless of scale, is extremely impressive. Thanks to the sort of technology being introduced to the local industry, the boundaries of what can be achieved for any survey professional or entity seeking spatial information have been pushed forward significantly.

“We really are seeing future-tech solutions being used to solve problems and provide spatial data in New Zealand every single day,” he says.

Surveying provides the basis of accurately capturing and collating spatial data from one or more sources. Once captured, accurate and current spatial data enables intelligent decision making based on information gathered in real-time. This in turn means project managers have the ability to make more informed decisions and improve both project design and forecasting.

Recon’s in-house survey specialist will service the civil construction and surveying industries, while the consultancy’s specialised end-to-end UAV service will enable surveyors, developers, local councils and other entities to gather detailed terrain information in a quick and safe manner.

Another service offered by Recon is highly accurate and portable 3D laser scanning. When a large amount of detail is required within a timeframe much shorter than that which traditional surveying can provide, Recon’s 3D laser scanning service offers another complete package for the data end-user.           

 “Essentially, with our experience on a multitude of spatial data capture projects and access to globally recognised hardware and software solutions, Recon is effectively a multi-faceted surveying consultancy with a whole lot more horsepower behind it,” continues Jeremy.

He says that Recon – which has been established as part of the Synergy Positioning Systems group of companies – consists of consultants offering specialised skills, but with the ability to jump across into other disciplines as required.

 “While we have a specific focus, we’re still a multi-service agency,” Jeremy concludes.

“We can come in and capture the required data, support a surveying entity on the job if they’re wanting to utilise the technology themselves, or even advise on the right technology for a company’s needs if they wish to purchase it for themselves.”
