ONSITE PLANNING USING THE FIELD APP
Mapping locations with a pen and paper on site, is now a thing of the past! The Vercator Field App gives users the ability to pair up scans in sequence with simple drag and drop functionality whilst live on site. This is an essential part of planning the registration process but can be carried out easily using anything from a 2D site plan to a roughly sketched scheme on a notepad, as shown in the image.
Create a project, take a photo or upload an image of your scan area. You can easily place scans icons and link scan locations together. Once finished, simply export a ZIP file and use as your scan network in the Vercator Cloud.
With the increasing speeds of 3D laser scanners, it isn't uncommon for tens if not hundreds of scan positions to be captured daily.
Many hardware devices rely on post processing of these scans e.g. registration is still performed as a manual in-office process.
Being able to keep accurate details of how your scans link together is imperative; many people still make sketch notes of their site network. Commonly though these paper records get lost or damaged.
Utilizing the VERCATOR Field App enables you to build your scan network live on site and keeps all this key information safe and secure.
Being able to build an accurate site network really does help when it comes to processing the registration; especially when you've hundreds of scans being captured daily.
With the VERCATOR Field App you can place the locations of both scans and targets (if you've used them). Once a marker is placed you can then link scan pairs to generate your network.
Commonly we see separate site and office teams being deployed; meaning it is even more important to have this network of scan pairs defined prior to leaving site.
Whilst the VERCATOR Field App can be used independently its does forms the framework for automation when using the VERCATOR Cloud Registration utility service.
Accessibility is key. Once the onsite network is complete you can quickly and easily export from the VERCATOR Field App.
You can choose how you share this information; the .zip file created can be emailed straight to the office team or uploaded to a cloud storage location.
The .zip file contains image files of the uploaded base plan, the created scan network and the created target network. It also contains CSV files of the targets (if placed) and the scan locations themselves including which scans they link/pair with.
This ZIP file is what is directly read into the VERCATOR Cloud Registration utility service to enable maximum automation.
