NavVis Deploys SLAM to Automatically Remove Point Cloud Artifacts

NavVis, the Germany-based global provider of indoor spatial intelligence solutions for enterprises, has released new software for the NavVis M6 indoor mobile mapping system (IMMS) that automatically detects and removes dynamic objects and object fringe points from point clouds during the post-processing of scan data. Fringe points and dynamic objects are two common types of point cloud artifacts that affect all 3D laser scanning devices. Fringe points arise when a laser beam hits the edge of an object as well as its background. This scattered beam ultimately appears as a so-called fringe around the edge of the object in the...

NavVis Introduces Cloud-based Platform for Immersive 3D Buildings

NavVis, a German provider of indoor spatial intelligence solutions for enterprises, has announced the launch of NavVis Cloud. This new cloud-based platform gives laser scanning professionals access to NavVis IndoorViewer as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. Fully immersive, web-based 3D buildings can now be delivered as part of every scan project using point cloud files from terrestrial laser scanners and the NavVis M6 indoor mobile mapping system (IMMS). NavVis IndoorViewer is a web-based application that transforms data captured by laser scanners into fully immersive 3D buildings. With a few clicks, scan data is automatically structured into a basic model of the... (read more)

Increasing Information in Building Models

New Technology Can Significantly Improve BIM
Since the advent of building information modelling (BIM) software in the early 2000s, 3D modelling has significantly improved building design. With regular updates, BIM can also ensure that, during construction, the work progresses according to the design. In practice, however, BIM usually stops once construction starts. This can mostly be attributed to the complexity and cost of gathering accurate and current data needed to update the digital models. The German firm NavVis GmbH is a Munich-based start-up that has developed technology which overcomes these barriers by reducing the cost and increasing the efficiency of capturing and comparing data of physical...
