GeoSLAM has announced the latest version of its SLAM registration software and next-generation ZEB-REVO mobile scanner.
GeoSLAM Hub, the successor to GeoSLAM Desktop software, was released at the Intergeo 2017 in Berlin. GeoSLAM Hub enables end-to-end data capture, allowing users to process, merge and output 2D and 3D deliverables in one software package.
“GeoSLAM is changing the economics of 3D laser scanning with the launch of GeoSLAM Hub at Intergeo,” says Mark Reid, vice president of product management at GeoSLAM. “Our latest software offering is truly an all-in-one solution for 3D point cloud manipulation.”
The Hub has built on the strengths of GeoSLAM Desktop with its ability to process anywhere, anytime, but with a whole new range of functions. A key feature is GeoSLAM Draw, which allows the simple and rapid creation of 2D plans, sections and elevations from a 3D point cloud.
Also introduced at Intergeo 2017, ZEB-REVO RT cuts survey times in half, GeoSLAM says, by collecting and processing scan data simultaneously while on the move. The 3D scan is displayed in real time on either a mobile phone or tablet, connected wirelessly to the scanner, allowing for immediate visual feedback on coverage and data quality.
GeoSLAM was founded in 2012 as a joint venture between CSIRO (Australia’s National Science Agency) and 3D Laser Mapping (a global provider of 3D LiDAR solutions). The company specializes in the design and manufacture of geospatial SLAM hardware and software solutions, including the ZEB1 and ZEB-REVO handheld mobile indoor mapping systems. Based in the U.K., GeoSLAM has a global network of distributors with a presence in 38 countries across six continents.
