Gaia Engineers Acquires Maptek Spatial Modelling and Geotechnical Tools

Gaia Engineers Ltd, based in Auckland, New Zealand, has acquired Maptek I-Site Studio and Maptek Eureka for their civil engineering practice. Gaia saw the need for smart automated tools to help interpret geological and geotechnical features from large photogrammetry and laser scan point cloud datasets, which are available in I-Site Studio. Incorporating drilling data to model geology for analysis of structures and failures is streamlined in Eureka. Eureka provides an interactive 3D environment for visualisation and modelling of drilling, geophysical surveys, maps, imagery and GIS data. "The Maptek workflows played a critical part in the purchasing decision," said Technical Director... (read more)

Bentley Systems Acquires Plaxis and SoilVision

Bentley Systems, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, has announced the acquisition of Plaxis, the leading provider of geotechnical software, based in Delft, Netherlands, and the agreement to acquire soil engineering software provider SoilVision, based in Saskatchewan, Canada. The acquisitions, strengthens Bentley’s desire to be a complete source for geotechnical professionals “going digital”. Projects can begin with geotechnical surveys and sampling, captured with gINT for versatile documentation and reporting. Next, professionals perform engineering related to soil properties, soil behaviour, and groundwater flow using SoilVision’s SVOFFICE applications, supplemented by Plaxis’ offerings. Then soil-structure interaction is analysed... (read more)

Maptek Launches Spatial Data Application PointStudio

Maptek has launched a new point cloud processing and modelling software called PointStudio 8 – a new name, platform and ribbon interface evolving from I-Site Studio. The next generation 3D platform for modelling, analysis and reporting is delivered on the Maptek Workbench, which unlocks data sharing with other Maptek applications. One of the benefits of moving to the Workbench is access to the Workflow Editor for building interactive command sequences. PointStudio users can link workflow components to data and easily run automations in context. “A good example is site-configured registration workflows. This incorporates data import and filtering, as well as... (read more)
