Survey Data Acquisition and Analysis Solution

Survey data acquisition and analysis plays a critical part potentially at all phases of a project’s lifecycle. Data required for a project generally comes from many different sources, such as traditional survey, terrestrial and mobile LIDAR, photogrammetry, and LandXML exports from various third-party products. The ability to easily load, interpret, and analyze this information and create a single source of truth is paramount to the project’s success.

Capabilities
  • Acquire and incorporate field data

    • ​Easily incorporate existing project terrain data, using industry standard formats, which you can utilize in the creation of base mapping, digital terrain models, and reference data. Many field data types can be used in their raw state, or they can be converted into other formats that applications can easily consume.
  • Import and manage point clouds

    • ​Provide your project team with managed access to large point-cloud data sets through ProjectWise. Deliver the right application tools that can clip, apply class management, and utilize scalable terrain models to maximize performance.
  • Generate surface model

    • ​Create intelligent existing or proposed surfaces models that include terrain data, as well as site and roadway features. Use surface models to design, analyze, and visualize existing and proposed elements of your project.
