GeoSLAM Connect Demo

Everything you need to try the software for yourself

Congratulations, you are moments away from using Connect

Follow the 3 steps below:

Step 1: Download GeoSLAM Connect

You can download the software using the link below. Your license information should be contained in your demo confirmation email.

Step 2: Download sample data

We have a range of different data sets ready for you to use during your demo, all captured with a GeoSLAM ZEB family scanner.

Step 3: Follow our step-by-step instructions

This page contains a range of useful documents, information on workflows and videos to step you through how to use GeoSLAM Connect.

If you requested GeoSLAM Draw when submitting the Connect trial form you can download it below.

Please note: If you are already using Hub or Draw :

Connect comes with GeoSLAM Draw 4.0. GeoSLAM Hub is installed with Draw 3.5, so if you want to install Connect on a machine that already has Hub installed, there are a few things you need to know before installing Connect:

  • Before installing Connect, you should uninstall any existing Connect and Draw software.
  • You will need to refresh your Draw license using the new GeoSLAM License Manager to update it to the new 4.0 version.
  • Once you have installed Connect, Hub will recognise the new Draw 4.0 version.
  • Projects created or opened in Draw 4.0 are not compatible with Draw 3.5.
  • If you wish to revert back to Draw 3.5 you will need to uninstall Draw 4.0 and then reinstall Draw 3.5.

Getting Started

Workflow Library

  • Process SLAMenvironmental pre-sets based on common data capture scenarios (e.g. UAV, outdoor, indoor, linear, vehicle) can be selected in order to optimise SLAM processing. Watch the video to learn more.
  • Reprocess SLAM – data can be reprocessed particular parameters (e.g. bounding box modifications, voxel density, convergence threshold, window size, rigidity).
  • Stop and Go Alignment – common static points are captured during multiple scans so datasets can be automatically aligned and merged. A single point cloud is then exported as if the data was captured in a single scan. Watch the video to learn more.
  • Stop and Go Georeferencing – known control points are captured during a scan and automatically matched to the internal scanner coordinates. A rigid or non-rigid adjustment can be made to the dataset and an accuracy report is exported highlighting how successful the transformation was. Watch the video to learn more.
  • Closed Loop Georeferencing – this method matches the scan data from a ZEB Locate system, with the GPS data collected from the antenna to georeference a point cloud. Standard SLAM practices apply to this method of data collection. Watch the video to learn more.
  • Change Detection – point clouds can be compared and areas of change are automatically highlighted. Areas in green show new features that have been added whilst blue areas highlight features that have been removed. Point clouds can also be compared with CAD models. Watch the video to learn more.
  • Floor Slices – floor slices can be automatically taken at a given height above the floor as defined in the processing stage. Vertical slices can also be taken from any location within a point cloud. A PNG image of the defined floor slice is automatically created, which can then be used in third party software. Watch the video to learn more.
