General / BIM/GIS Integration
« on: December 11, 2018, 10:33:36 AM »
Good day all,

I need some assistance, I'm looking for software/solution to integrate BIM & GIS together. I get requests where a client wants to see a BIM model (example: a bridge/conveyor in a model created by agisoft). I've seen ArcGIS can do it, but I'm not on that sort of turnover yet where it's feasible to buy. Is there lower end software where some of you have tried and tested it? Visuals will be good enough, some of the BIM info contains a lot of "behind the scenes" data that is not needed for visualizations.
Thank you

Good day,

I would really appreciate it if contours can be exported (shp/dxf) with option to export all within "Outer Boundary" polygon. Getting the contours to be within the Orthomosaic export takes some time in Survey Software that I'm using.

Maybe just a tick box to use "Outer Boundary" for contour export.

Thank you

General / Tarmac road not showing smooth surface
« on: June 21, 2016, 01:53:29 PM »

I'm having trouble getting tarmac road to show smooth surface.

When building a dense cloud I use High quality and aggressive filtering. Started out at medium quality and mild filtering and still get same results. The photo's was taken at 70% forward and sidelaps as a minimum, at some places sidelaps was up to 80%.

I'm adding 2 screenshots to show dense cloud to see what it is and solid triangle to show uneven road surface.

Any suggestions in workflow to improve would be greatly appreciated.


It will be very useful when drawing a poly-line, polygon or point(s) to label them as something ie where it shows poly-line, polygon points in the workspace tab under "shapes" one should have a option when selecting the "option" to name it or for when it appear under shape to right click and give a name there.

Also a Text  option would be very useful ie to annotate Stockpiles for a client on a orthomosaic.

Thank you

Addition to the request: Can the points option be continuous rather than selecting point the whole time to generate some required points.

General / Classify Ground Points
« on: February 02, 2016, 11:53:16 AM »
Good day,

I'm having trouble getting a "clear cut" classification on the points. With buildings, there's always point start at the bottom going towards the top and then the Tree or building at the top are classified. Can someone please guide me to what you think think the best "Search/classify parameters" are for this function.

Thank you

Bug Reports / Export Orthomosaic
« on: January 15, 2016, 12:43:19 PM »
I can't export orthomosaic. I have done the "Build Orthomosaic" When I select export orthomosaic, the process starts but then quickly finish as if it is done, then when I browse for the file where it should've been saved, there is none. I have even done the project all over again, and uninstall and reinstalled the software, but no luck. Any advice?

General / Re: Export GeoTiff and DEM
« on: July 13, 2015, 04:14:58 PM »
When exporting DEM to yxz fileformat it comes out the correct coordinates, but when I'm exporting Geotiff with the same projection, it adds (-) to the coordinates which takes it to the wrong quadrant. I then delete the (-) in (The survey package I'm using - ModelMaker) in order to get it to the correct quadrant, but now the photo is still upside down (and appears to be in the correct position) and I cannot change the coordinate in order to rotate the photo.
The projection is for South Africa Hartbeeshoek94 - LO31.


I need to work out the quickest way to have an area layout ready for draft presentation for auditors to witness that everything (area) is accounted for before I leave site. It will be +/-350 photo's to be processed with 70% laps. The purpose of the project will be to calculate volumes, but I can do that in my own time away from site where there is much less time constrains. The main thing is a presentation (processed to show areas of stockpiles) to be witnessed.

General / Orthophoto Export
« on: May 22, 2015, 11:38:34 AM »
Good day,

I want to find out when exporting to orthophoto if there is a option somewhere (Photo Scan Pro) to change the background (outside the photo) from black to white for example.

Attached is a example.
