Photogrammetry consultants Pix4D has launched survey-grade 3D modeling on cell gadgets with RTK accuracy. The viDoc RTK rover permits ground-based RTK-grade 3D scanning with iOS cell phones and tablets via the Pix4Dcatch app.
“Conceived by viGram GmbH., a German firm led by skilled surveyors, the viDoc RTK rover is designed with a watch for accuracy and works with Pix4Dcatch for picture acquisition,” says a Pix4D product announcement. “The hand-held RTK rover is a substitute for dearer floor surveying tools that doesn’t compromise on accuracy to attain 3D, actionable outcomes.”
“The viDoc RTK rover, synchronized with Pix4Dcatch, geotags the pictures of a 3D scan in real-time, whereas linked to any NTRIP service. Extensive analysis has revealed that it’s potential to attain 3D fashions with an absolute geolocation accuracy of lower than 5 cm (test the white paper here).”
Christoph Strecha, Founder and CEO of Pix4D, feedback: “We are completely happy to see how Pix4D algorithms complement shopper tech to attain professional-grade outcomes. This was the case with drones a couple of years again. Now it’s the flip of cell gadgets, permitting professionals to digitize the world and switch it into correct 3D fashions at a fraction of the worth. The new resolution combines RTK correct picture tagging with photogrammetry and LiDAR (for LiDAR enabled cell gadgets) processing.”
While Pix4D is greatest identified for drone mapping, with Pix4Dcatch the corporate expanded its choices to offer a full service on one platform, permitting industrial prospects so as to add walk-through photographs to their aerial information.
The viDoc RTK rover for Pix4Dcatch is offered right now for transport to Europe. It is offered for the remainder of the world ranging from May 20, straight via Pix4D or our resellers. Pix4Dcatch is free to obtain on the App Store.
