GeoSLAM and Bentley Systems Join Forces to Take Mobile Reality Modelling Indoors

GeoSLAM and Bentley Systems have announced a partnership to enable the simple and fast production of hybrid reality models in any environment. After having presented fast 3D laser scanning using a handheld mobile scanner, the next stage is to further improve how the results can be both interpreted and consumed within typical engineering and GIS workflows. Bentley Systems’ reality modelling software, ContextCapture, available on desktop and mobile devices, produces engineering grade textured 3D models for design, construction, and operations derived purely from photographs. A quick and inexpensive way to provide real world context, the software is commonly used for modelling... (read more)

OGC Request for Information: 'Mixed Reality to the Edge' Concept Development Study

As part of its 'Mixed Reality to the Edge' Concept Development Study (CDS), the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is requesting information about needs and solutions involved in the automation of workflows that curate, discover, process, integrate and publish (disseminate) 3D/4D geospatial content to users at ‘the edge’. In this sense, ‘the edge’ represents field-deployed users with mobile devices that may have only limited or no internet connectivity (also known as denied, disconnected, intermittent and limited bandwidth (DDIL) environments). Users at ‘the edge’ include first responders, field-deployed utility workers, war-fighters and others. The volume and variety of spatial and temporal data... (read more)

Bluesky 3D Models Used to Create VR Simulation of Offshore Wind Farm

3D models from Bluesky are being used to communicate plans for a new offshore wind farm in Scotland. The interactive models allow users to ‘teleport’ around a virtual environment, viewing the proposed turbine development from the coast in the real-world context of existing buildings and trees. Created by environmental consultancy company SLR and commissioned by Inch Cape Offshore Limited (ICOL), the scale 3D model has already been used for public consultations and a visual impact study for the proposed scheme off the east coast. Created from high resolution aerial photography, the data supplied by Bluesky included a detailed and accurate... (read more)
