Railroad installations connect habitats

Gathering topographical information through surveying is essential for designing infrastructure construction projects.

Our teams of experts use state-of-the-art surveying systems to collect, evaluate, check and document the necessary data.

We offer surveying services in the following areas:

Using 3D laser scanning to survey large train stations, staking out a double slip and handling control surveying for slide-in bridge construction are just a few examples of what our engineers do every day.

Our range of services:

  • Foundation surveying
  • Drafting surveying plans and gradient diagrams
  • Creating digital elevation models (DEMs) (3D representation of the Earth's natural surface)
  • Creating digital surface models (DSMs) (representation of the Earth's surface and all objects on it, such as roads, structures, vegetation and bodies of water)
  • Drafting staking-out documents
  • Construction surveying
  • Control surveying (monitoring construction with the help of surveying)
  • Track and switch surveying
  • Surveying services for concrete slab track
  • Surveying existing buildings
  • Tunnel surveying
  • Bridge and viaduct surveying
  • Movement and deformation surveying (monitoring)
  • Surveying consulting services
  • Creating measurement solutions
  • Special surveying

Our visualization experts specialize in drafting design documents based on surveying data using state-of-the-art technology and in preparing and processing data from other disciplines with regard to content and in visual formats.

Our range of services:

Preparing

  • Surveying plans and gradient diagrams, vertical and horizontal cross-sections
  • Structure cross-sections, 2D and 3D views
  • Digital elevation and surface models (DEM and DSM)

Further processing products of track geometry work

  • Track geometry studies, track layouts
  • Switch elevation designs and plans, switch drawings
  • Schematic plan of alignment for maintenance
  • Detailed design plan of alignment (including point numbers)

DB GIS

  • Updating the surveying section of the geoinformation system

Special products

  • Clearance documentation (PELIM [photogrammetric image clearance measurement system] and LIMEZ [clearance recording train])
  • Information center plan (updating existing documents)
  • Customer or topic-specific plans, line documentation
  • Visualization of point clouds (TruView)

Building information modeling is a method of optimized design, construction and management of properties using software with an exact three-dimensional model at its core.

It uses data that is collected on site as well as existing data. BIM analyzes and reprocesses generated data (mass data) and prepares it as a BIM data source in a variety of forms.

Our range of services:

  • Primary data acquisition
  • Providing BIM data sources
  • Modeling (3D models of existing structures, digital surface models, hybrid models of building information, component modeling)
  • Management of existing data
  • Organization of a BIM infrastructure
  • BIM coordination (surveying)

We use multicopters to provide our customers with high-resolution georeferenced photos from a bird's eye view in near real time. Using a multicopter makes it possible to explore properties that are not easily accessible, for example, in a short time. Greatly reducing work on site minimizes the potential for risk in track danger areas, which in turn leads to cost savings for rail protection services.

Our range of services:

  • Organization of flight permits and flight planning
  • Inspection and documentation (such as construction supervision, photovoltaic plants, cliff and dike monitoring, flooding)
  • Visual documentation to back up expert opinions
  • Initial inspections and flights
  • Creation and visualization of 3D models
  • Thermal imaging
  • Exploration of properties, buildings and areas that are difficult to reach and inaccessible
