Digital Surveys provide a number of solutions for customers who wish to virtually inspect a site without leaving the office. From every laser scan that is created a 360 spherical image is also generated at that spot. This can be used to create a very high resolution virtual tour of a site similar to street view. If colour or High dynamic range imagery is also take from each scanner location this can also be overlaid to create a photo realistic tour.
This information can be made available in a number of ways. The simplest solution is through the Leica Tru View online viewer, this is provided by Digital Surveys free of charge on all projects.
Free Leica TruView software is for anyone who wants to view, measure or mark-up rich, laser scan point clouds. All that’s
needed are access to file sets made by Leica Cyclone PUBLISHER and a free license of Leica TruView. Access, viewing, measurement and mark-up can even be done via internet!
Using Leica TruView is intuitive – no skills in laser scanning,C AD, or 3D are needed. TruView provides panoramic images of
High-Definition Survey™ point clouds on your computer as if you were standing where the laser scanner was.
Users can easily pan, rotate and zoom and have access to an intuitive set of mark up and measurement tools. TruViews can also contain Hotlinks, specialised mark-ups that can contain hyperlinks to predetermined documents or applications. Users can create these links in Cyclone and have them “published” along with the TruView data. This provides an asset data integration capability.
