The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is the civic body that oversees Hyderabad with reference to the overall administration and beautification of the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad which has become the largest city of Telangana. The function of the GHMC is also to take care of the promotional aspects of most of the companies or organizations in Hyderabad with reference to placing advertisements on the billboards.
In the past, the companies or the organization who have an intention to place their advertisement on the billboard have to go through a strenuous process of measuring the entire length of the hoarding before attempting to place them.
The process is accomplished by engaging a labour to climb up the hoarding and check the measurement of the poster with a measuring tape and then customizing the poster in order to make them fit well. (Sometimes while customizing the poster in the billboard, the customers generally used to pay the penalty for the excess poster)
As the process became cumbersome, we defined a solution which could enable us to have the precise measurement of the billboard and the same was suggested by us to the GHMC with the introduction of a device Leica Laser distance meter which is abbreviated as DISTO™ S910 Pro Kit.
The device became a very handy tool for the user to use, and which measures the distance between two ends of the billboard much precisely and accurately (within the range of 300 meters), that too by standing in one location.
The added advantage of the device is that it can also be used for certain blueprints and documentation, calculation of the roof dimensions, and also to integrate the gathered data into Building Information Modelling (BIM) or CAD software in order to create 3D Visualization. The documentation helps to bring about more efficiency and saves valuable time and money. The device can help the user in retrieving the complete measurement pertaining to the billboard as it has got capacity to store 20 DXF files
The tool has become the best modus operandi for GHMC Authority in terms of the landscape assessments and making them get prepared for the entire beautification process.
