Next-generation total station

Increase productivity by combining lidar scanning with robotics

Product Info

Efficient layout and scanning with a single instrument

The GTL-1200 combines the power of a robotic total station with a best-in-class laser scanner to perform digital layout and capture high-res 3D scans in a single setup. Simplify the scanning process and dramatically reduce the need for post-processing by capturing scan data on survey control. The workflow seamlessly integrates with ClearEdge3D software for advanced construction QA workflows and as-builts. 

  • Fast layout and scanning using a single instrument
  • Instant point cloud registration
  • Full dome scan and images in seconds
  • Tailored scan density to minimize software processing time
  • Point clouds accurately matched to BIM model coordinates


Capture reality

Capture point clouds “on coordinates” for meaningful data that is ready onsite.

UltraTrac™ prism tracking

Experience prism lock productivity, even in challenging environments.

Bluetooth® communication

Communicate reliably between the instrument and controller, even over long distances.


Lay out or directly measure to any point or feature with laser pointer guidance.

Ultrasonic motors

Engage high-speed, precise instrument motors for intelligent control of the robotic total station.

Hybrid Positioningᵀᴹ

Integrate GNSS technology to accurately measure points - even when line of sight is not possible - reducing unnecessary setups.

Simplified workflows

Work more productively by streamlining a range of workflows, such as documenting jobsite as-built conditions, performing construction verification, and sharing point clouds online.



As-Built & Verify

Near-real-time construction verification

Traditionally, comparing scan data with a BIM model for verification needed to be performed back at the office. GTL-1200 workflows enable timely construction verification directly in the field for faster, more meaningful inspections.

Streamline digital layout

With the GTL-1200, you can lay out more points per day and improve overall construction precision and quality. The GTL layout workflow streamlines data management from layout file creation to field layout and back to the office with quality and progress reports.

Reduced on-site & rework costs

Using one instrument for layout and laser scanning reduces training, equipment-maintenance costs and cuts down the number of people needed on site. Getting timely 3D as-built data expedites construction QA/QC, so you can correct mistakes before they become costly problems.

The complete solution

The workflows that control and manage data and deliverables really set the GTL solution apart.

Collage Site

A single field worker can fully process and visualize scanned data directly on a field tablet, eliminating tedious back-office workflows.

Fast and simple construction verification

The GTL solution replaces spot checks with a revolutionary construction verification process that takes hours instead of days, dramatically reducing errors and cost.
