GeoSLAM is built for flexibility. Take your point cloud to new places with any of the third party software below.
How will you use your GeoSLAM data?
Autodesk Navisworks is a comprehensive project review solution that supports co-ordination, analysis and communication of design intent and constructability. The software can be used as a common data environment (CDM) for multidisciplinary design data created in a broad range of Building Information Modelling (BIM) packages to be brought together within one unified model. With the use of GeoSLAM’s scanners you can quickly and easily scan throughout the build phase of a project and make sure what is being built on site matches the model. Then using the tools within Navisworks you can anticipate and minimise and potential problems.
Autodesk Revit is a building information modelling (BIM) software. Helping professionals design, build and maintain higher-quality more energy efficient buildings. It contains tools which allows for planning and tracking throughout the building’s lifecycle. The software also allows multiple disciplines to collaborate more efficiently and make more informed decisions early in the design process. As GeoSLAM’s hardware allows for quick data capture our equipment can be used to scan any existing buildings with the purpose of using the data to produce a digital twin.
ContextCapture is a reality modelling tool, allowing for the import of any point cloud and imagery data for the creation of high resolution reality meshes. These realistic meshes are accurate representation in 3D with high resolution RGB values of any scanned environment. By using GeoSLAM data in ContextCapture the users are able to create indoor reality meshes, which has been never possible before.
Microstation is a 2D/3D software for designing building and infrastructure projects. It includes building information modelling (BIM) tools to document and assess any type of asset throughout its lifecycle. GeoSLAM solutions are often used in Microstation to assess the current stage of any built environment, update the design model, and generate BIM information. Microstation is also used extensively in the underground mining sector with GeoSLAM data, to understand grade-lines in 2D mine planning, and adherence of production to mine planning.
Orbit GT consists of three main modules, Content Manager, Feature Extraction and Publisher with Cloud service. These packages allow users to capture and manage available 3D data (LiDAR data and imagery), extract a range of features for map production and make data sharable. All Orbit modules are ready to be used with 3D data from Indoor, Oblique, UAS and Mobile Mapping projects. There are also other extensions that can be added to the Publisher and Orbit Cloud, like ArcGIS or AutoCAD plugins so that data can be shared and used within mainstream GIS and CAD packages. GeoSLAM data from the newest ZEB Discovery system can be used within all Orbit modules to provide customers with end to end solution for data management, map production, asset inventory and delivery. Orbit can be bought through GeoSLAM for our ZEB Discovery solution.
GeoSLAM data is exported from Connect in .csv format and imported into Deswik. With Connects stop-and-go georefencing feature, users can easily georeference headings from known positions and map for analysis of overbreak, underbreak, undercutting and blast roughness calculations. This information is used within Deswik Mapping to analyse headings and levels.
Outputs from GeoSLAM’s solutions can be input to esri’s GIS programs and apps, including ArcPro, ArcDesktop, Arc GIS Online and Scene.
- Join point clouds with local geodata or classify and edit scans based on their geography and statistics.
- Use ArcOnline to share 3D Scenes or manage field activities using essential applications from many devices.
- Manage LiDAR data within a geodatabase or deploy ArcEnterprise for secure hosting or serving of select point clouds for real time or fieldworker type applications and more.
- Using esri’s point cloud handling processes from both new and classic toolboxes, you can transform point clouds with raster and vector tools, define a CRS or reproject LiDAR data in space, convert file types, create point cloud processing models and workflows.
GeoSLAM are proud to be silver partners of esri.
Micromine is a detailed and diverse mining software that provides solutions including modelling, estimation, design, optimisation and scheduling. Once data is exported from Connect it can be imported into Micromine and easily converted into wireframes. These can be used in Micromine for further studies into volumetric slicing, over and underbreak analysis, geologic modelling, face mapping and many more. Learn more about GeoSLAM and Micromine below.
MineRP has a Spatial DB that uses GeoSLAM data to represent visually the real environment of the underground mine. The software uses other data layers to overlay information on the digital landscape for decision making and tracking.
Pointfuse generates 3D meshes from point cloud data and classifies them to building ceilings, walls, windows and other features in IFC format. By using GeoSLAM data with Pointfuse users can very quickly create a classified BIM model with minimal manual input or expertise needed.
Pointerra provides a powerful cloud based solution for managing, visualizing, working in, analysing, using and sharing massive 3D point clouds and datasets. Pointerra allows users to simply visualize and interrogate GeoSLAM data from anywhere.
SketchUp is a 3D modelling computer program for a wide range of drawing applications such as architectural, interior design, landscape architecture, civil and mechanical engineering, film and video game design. In GeoSLAM Draw users can export a section to a .DWG file format which can be imported in to SketchUp Pro to be viewed as a 2D plan. Point clouds can be exported in .STL file format which can be imported in to SketchUp Pro to be viewed in 3D.
Terrasolid provides tools for data processing of airborne and mobile mapping LiDAR data and imagery. It includes different modules for tasks like data manipulation, calibration, georeferencing, point cloud classification, modelling and many more. It is a very powerful tool for a variety of industries, surveyors, civil engineers, planners, designers. Terrasolid has been developed to work on top of Bentley MicroStation as a plugin but it’s now introduced a standalone small 3D CAD solution, called Spatix. Full, UAV or lite versions of Terrasolid modules are available for both MicroStation or Spatix software. All GeoSLAM products are compatible with Terrasolid and GeoSLAM data can be enhanced and edited with this software.
Veesus Arena 4D
Arena4D is a software package for marking up, annotating and editing 3D point cloud data containing a various export capabilities. It as well has a powerful and simple to use animation package which allows to visualize massive point clouds in a simple way. GeoSLAM data can be simply uploaded and used in this package for the assessment of the current conditions of any structure, comparing differences between captured data (as built) to designed model (as designed).
Although Unreal Engine is mainly built for developing games, increasingly users are starting to use it to develop VR applications for understanding the current conditions of buildings, infrastructure and similar. Unreal Engine with a point cloud plug in can be used to visualize GeoSLAM point clouds in VR, which allows for collaboration, simulation and the understanding of current conditions of any scanned environment. Additionally, Unreal Engine tools are completely free.
Floorplanner allows you to draw accurate 2D floorplans within minutes and decorate with over 150,000 items from kitchen appliances to tables and chairs. Data is exported from GeoSLAM Connect in PNG file format with a scale of 1cm per 1 pixel and can be taken into Floorplanner.
