On September 10, 2014, Leica Geosystems, in conjunction with the Surveyors Association of West Jersey, will host a special half-day educational event for transportation surveying and engineering professionals on the nation’s largest battleship, the Battleship New Jersey, anchored in Camden, N.J.

As part of this effort Leica Geosystems and Haag 3D are also scanning the New Jersey as a volunteer effort. “Our firm is dedicated to reaching out and providing our technology and experience to the community we live in,” said Christopher Zmijewski, vice president of Haag 3D Solutions. “Having the Battleship New Jersey in our backyard provides a unique opportunity to completely scan the ship. We recognize how HDS documentation technology can be used to enhance future visitor and educational experiences, while documenting the ship as the engineering marvel she is.”
