Pointfuse Launches Simple BIM Solution for Facilities Management

Pointfuse has developed smart software that automates the identification and classification of objects for facilities management applications using data from mobile mapping systems like the new Leica BLK2GO. The software converts the millions of individual measurements captured by laser scanning and photogrammetry into usable 3D mesh models. The ability to classify objects within Pointfuse, both automatically and manually, has brought new possibilities in how as-built data is used within design and construction.   The software solution now can realize real time records for space utilization and optimization projects, reducing costs and speeding workflows within facilities management. Pointfuse ‘Simple BIM’ (sBIM) leverages... (read more)

NavVis Uses SLAM to Automatically Remove Point Cloud Artifacts

NavVis, a leading global provider of indoor spatial intelligence solutions for enterprises, announces a new software release for the NavVis M6 Indoor Mobile Mapping System (IMMS) that automatically detects and removes dynamic objects and object fringe points from point clouds during the post-processing of scan data. Fringe points and dynamic objects are two common types of point cloud artifacts that affect all 3D laser scanning devices. Fringe points arise when a laser beam hits the edge of an object as well as its background. This scattered beam ultimately appears as a so-called fringe around the edge of the object in the...

Drone Roof Surveys and Aerial Inspections

Roof surveys and building inspections using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or 'drones') have become a more efficient data collection process for many building and construction projects, compared to traditional ground-based methods. Major cost savings and speed of collection are the main reasons why an increasing number of companies are using drone mapping software. Drone Photography Services, based in Cornwall, UK, uses various DJI drones with zoom cameras and the latest software to deliver efficient, high-quality surveying and mapping data. Drones are not practical in all surveying applications, but the company has recently done surveys of a church roof and structure... (read more)

Taking Full Advantage of the Benefits of UAS Technology

Leveraging UAS technology across surveying and engineering sectors is demanding. Meeting the expectations of accuracy and accountability requires the best in expertise, methodology and equipment. The latest unmanned aerial system (UAS) photogrammetric hardware and software now enables surveyors to capture millions of survey measurements on the ground, where they would previously have measured only hundreds. It is essential to have the best-quality equipment, software and workflows to ensure this data is accurate, robust and defensible for professional use. Geosyntec is a leading consulting and engineering firm that works with private and public sector clients to address new ventures and complex... (read more)
