Geoinformation Software as a Service

From Licensing to Subscription
Accurate geoinformation about urban areas, public buildings or historical sites is in great demand. It has become astonishingly easy to capture these scenes through cameras or laser scanning or to acquire open data from a diversity of sources. Professionals without a surveying background can do the job, but such professionals require reliable, robust, easy-to-use and affordable processing tools. Today, cloud computing can meet that need, enabling users to work with software packages running on remote servers on either a pay-per-use or a subscription basis. This article presents a cloud computing service dedicated to geoinformation software. Storing data in the cloud... (read more)

NavVis Precision SLAM Software Promises to Solve Errors

The Navvis M3 Trolley has been upgraded with new software and exploits SLAM to increase speed and efficiency when scanning buildings. It is capable of producing 360° images, point clouds, floorplans, and infrastructure data. The mobile 3D scanning device uses six high resolution cameras to capture 360 degree panoramic images, as well as three high-definition laser scanners that record up to 40,000 points per second within a 30m range. Additionally, NavVis’ browser based IndoorViewer software brings this data to life by enabling users to access and interact with 3D building models and maps from any device. As with most SLAM solutions, this software for... (read more)
