Chartered land survey and geospatial engineering consultancy, Geoterra, has become the first company to adopt GeoSLAM’s new Bentley ContextCapture solution.
Launched in partnership with Bentley Systems, the solution enables the simple and fast production of hybrid reality models in any environment.
A long standing GeoSLAM customer and one of the first in the UK to embrace GeoSLAM’s ZEB-REVO & ZEB-CAM solution into their service offering, Geoterra had been tasked with surveying a number of railway ventilation shafts and generating reality models for conditional assessment.
The task posed many challenges including poor lighting, access difficulties, limited site accessibility and tight time constraints. As a result, Geoterra called upon GeoSLAM to process the data through Bentley ContextCapture to generate a high-resolution reality mesh for six shafts.
Following a trial conducted by GeoSLAM with one of the shafts, Geoterra made the decision to purchase a ContextCapture Perpetual License and Select Subscription with GeoSLAM on hand to assist in training workflow and optimisation.
Geoterra Managing Director and Chartered Surveyor, Mark Hudson, said
“GeoSLAM have given Geoterra excellent support with our continuation to ‘push the boundaries’ of difficult survey projects by using innovative technology to produce the deliverables that our clients require. The combination of our GeoSLAM REVO & ZEB-CAM together Bentley ContextCapture has produced fantastic quality results which were previously unachievable by any other method”
UK channel manager, Sven van Duffelen, said:
“Our Bentley ContextCapture solution is a really strong package. Not only does it make sense commercially, but the fact that it comes with GeoSLAM assistance too gives businesses the peace of mind to know we’re with them every step of the way.
“Through our partnership with Bentley, we are jointly committed to helping businesses increase efficiencies with rapid mobile reality capture and we’re delighted to be able to help Geoterra on their road to success.”
Bentley Systems’ reality modelling software, ContextCapture, is available on desktop and mobile devices. It produces engineering grade textured 3D models for design, construction, and operations derived photographs, quickly and cost effectively. The software is commonly used for modelling outdoor environments either from images taken from the ground or with the use of drones.
