GIS Sputnik is widely used in condition surveying. High-definition 3D-models of buildings and constructions allow specialist to detect defects and deformations, moreover, it is possible to vectorize and save such areas using *.kml editor. Therefore, the result of inspection is 3D-map of defects and deformations.
One of the leading project in this area for Geoscan is condition survey of smokestacks. In this project, we use not only regular 3D-models of pipes with photorealistic textures but also 3D-models with thermal imagery textures. This approach allows solving problems of pipe inspection very accuratly.
To make the process of inspection of high altitude objects easy, in Sputnik 1.3 we developed special navigation mode. Now the user can move along the wall of the structure along the vertical axis using first person camera mode or using combination of CTRL key and mouse wheel. To make the process of using aerial photos in object inspection easy, we released the feature of photo selection. Now you can select photos of point of your interest with just two clicks.
As additional option for this project, we released the feature of viewing DXF with raster underlay. Therefore, viewing of drawing of tube synchronized with its TLS model.
