Measutronics is Working to “Get Kids into Survey”
Measutronics has joined the international Get Kids into Survey (GKiS) community in an effort to fuel the interest of future generations in everything geospatial. GKiS began in 2017 with a single poster that would help children understand what their parents do at work. It has since grown to include several posters depicting different surveying scenarios, a comic book, online resources for young surveyors and educators, a “SurveyFest” community event, and even an education fund to support GKiS ambassadors, school visits and more.
As Measutronics is a fixture in the hydrographic equipment and marine solutions industry, naturally their flagship demonstration vessel is the latest hero to join the GKiS squad. Dubbed “Nick Beamer,” our hero specializes in full vision everywhere around him. Equipped with marine LIDAR and multibeam SONAR on a pan & tilt mechanism, Nick Beamer collects a dense 3D point cloud above and below the water. No villain can hide from his scans!
