Specific functions of Leica DISTO™ D8
Indirect tilt measurements
Now it is easy to determine for ex. the slope of a roof; and as additional information you receive the slope of the roof. Work from only one spot. We recommend the use of the Leica Tripod TRI 100 and the adaptor LSA 360.
Perfect for: Installation of solar panels, setting of frameworks, roofing, architect
Indirect vertical measurements
Determine the height of a facade, a window, a tree, a tower or a publicity display starting with only 2 measurements
Perfect for: Building surveyor, utility contractor, municipal engineer, firemen, landscape architect, carpenter.
This function stands for analyzing the profile of a slope and altitude differences, in order to realize a cross-country
tread for landscape planning.
Perfect for: Landscape architect, mason, public work, surveyors.
Perfect for: all public works, architect, designer, all survey work,
painter, carpenter, etc.
