Colourisation and immersive walkthroughs among major GeoSLAM updates
This launch, which comes alongside the most recent update to its Connect software platform, is the latest accessory to accompany GeoSLAM’s leading ZEB Horizon scanner.
With simple deployment via handheld or backpack use, the ZEB Vision’s 4K resolution, 360° panoramic image capture, and colourisation capabilities add a new perspective to visualising a point cloud. Images are captured simultaneously during a scan, without the need for stopping to take photos.
With the latest release of GeoSLAM’s Connect software, data captured with the ZEB Vision can be easily colourised, without the need for third-party software.
Users can achieve greater understanding and visibility of the data capture environment with an immersive walkthrough, so they don’t have to be the person capturing the data to see it clearly.
Explaining the launch of ZEB Vision Dr Neil Slatcher, chief product officer, said:
“We’re delighted to officially launch our ZEB Vision camera which will bring easier colourisation to data collected by our ZEB Horizon scanner.
“Being able to add context to data, through colourisation and image capture, is invaluable, particularly for those working in the surveying, architecture and infrastructure sectors, where the extra details can make all the difference.
“Our customers completely own the data and images they collect at no extra cost. We are working hard to make capturing geospatial data as easy as possible, from our walk and scan method of data collection to automated workflows. Teaming the ZEB Vision with our updated Connect software will simplify this process even further.”
The update to Connect coincides with the launch of the ZEB Vision, but RGB colourisation is just one of the new automation options ZEB users can look forward to. Other new automation options include:
- Automatic Data Cleaning – A range of new data filters and classifiers have been introduced within Connect 2.1. This gives greater point cloud clarity by removing outliers and other unwanted points such as people and vehicles.
- Measuring Tool – Measure distances between points within any dataset for quick and accurate analysis.
Existing GeoSLAM customers with a Care subscription will be able to freely update to Connect 2.1, and any new products shipped will come with the software, providing users will full ownership of their data.
