NavVis Deploys SLAM to Automatically Remove Point Cloud Artifacts

NavVis, the Germany-based global provider of indoor spatial intelligence solutions for enterprises, has released new software for the NavVis M6 indoor mobile mapping system (IMMS) that automatically detects and removes dynamic objects and object fringe points from point clouds during the post-processing of scan data. Fringe points and dynamic objects are two common types of point cloud artifacts that affect all 3D laser scanning devices. Fringe points arise when a laser beam hits the edge of an object as well as its background. This scattered beam ultimately appears as a so-called fringe around the edge of the object in the...

Geodata for all is the Growing Reality

This year’s UK Esri conference attracted an astounding 2500 attendees, up by a thousand from 2014. As always, it was an incredibly busy day with far too many sessions to try to cover. I hope we’ve managed to convey a flavour of the event (begins page 26) through several significant projects including the Port of Rotterdam, Transport for London, the new Irish Water authority and Sellafield. In addition, it was a chance to see some clever apps under development and to pause to understand the impact that data collected from mobile phones is likely to have (see also Robin waters...

Bringing Geomatics and Geospatial Professionals Closer - GEO Business 2017

Event chair, Steven Eglinton, director of GeoEnable and vice-chair of AGI, urges geospatial professionals to come together for two days of conferences, workshops and exhibitions to learn, network, share and collaborate. While GEO Business’ roots are in survey and geomatics, the event has broadened into ‘geospatial’. It covers not only data capture, but data processing, management, use, re-use, maintenance and how to add value to business. It looks at the whole spectrum of what ‘geospatial’ can mean. Organisations represented include: Association for Geographic Information (AGI) Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Royal Institution of...
