Data acquisition for civil projects is a requirement and can be expensive, time consuming and even dangerous. But the increased availability of point clouds and the advent of drones to acquire point clouds are reducing those barriers and increasing safety.
Recorded on June 16, 2015....Many people struggle with specifying a Level of Development and Level of Accuracy when building a BIM. This session will provide and in-depth look into two of the industry's emerging standard specifications to help leverage both LOD and LOA on your project.
In this webinar, Terry Henry and Brendan Nichols, laser scan engineers at The Beck Group, will discuss their recent project at Duke University where they scanned a large athletic complex, which included a football stadium, historic basketball stadium, and other athletic administration buildings. They will explain best practices, both in the field and in the office which made the project a success as well as the challenges faced.
Previously recorded on May 13, 2015....Point cloud data from a variety of reality capture sources has become the norm for renovation and retrofit projects. But how can you best use that data to create and enhance your Revit model?
In this webinar, Fred Mills, managing director of The B1M, argues for the need for widespread BIM adoption in order to realize its ultimate value. He highlights common barriers and opportunities for businesses going through the process of BIM implementation. He also examines the use of point cloud data and its role as an agent for change by engaging those currently hesitant about BIM.
In this podcast, a Panel of ELMF Advisory Board members discuss the future of 3D technologies, including which 3D technologies are gaining prominence from data capture, processing to deliverables/visualization. Topics include most critical challenges for which 3D technologies are needed ssues that may be hindering more widespread adoption of 3D technologies, and important 3D technologies on the horizon.
Previously Recorded on April 29, 2015...This unique webinar will share the joint history of EagleView Technologies and Pictometry International and how they are breaking the mold with the use of high-resolution imagery, 3D modeling, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and point clouds to create powerful tools for visual and analytical solutions for GIS, 3D and business professionals. Free
This webinar will explore how RICS is developing the central role of the chartered surveyor within the BIM lifecycle, how a consistent measured survey specification and spatial accuracy is at the heart of BIM model integrity (during all stages) and how the centralised communication and data transfer aspects of BIM may be the biggest 'cultural' hurdles to overcome. Examples will be given of current RICS BIM orientated projects with a focus on digital imagery, smart cities/big data and the GIS-BIM-CAD nexus.
Previously Recorded on March 11, 2015....As the data capture industry progresses our customers are asking how they can gain more value from their scan data. It no longer seems a sensible approach to simply ‘throw away’ or silo data after every project, instead LFM want to be able to breathe life into this data and utilise it across the lifecycle of an asset.
This webinar will focus on assisting newcomers to the field of UAVs sift through the many details involved in understanding the various technologies, reviewing the tradeoffs, and identifying key considerations before purchasing a system.
In this webinar, Ishtiaque Mahbub, IT Strategy Advisor – Engineering, Shell Global Solutions International B.V. will discuss Shell's road map through laser scanning and 3D modeling. He will delve into the benefits, examples and deliverables of laser scanning at Shell as well as the challenges and opportunities faced.
In this webinar, Nick Palatiello, Vice President of External Affairs at MAPPS, will discuss the regulatory and budgetary climate surrounding UAVs and the opportunities and threats for this market.
Wayne Rodieck of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, one of the largest independent oil and gas exploration companies in the world, presents the importance of 3D technology to the oil and gas industry, from a customer's perspective. He also describes the key needs of the oil and gas industry and how the 3D technology market can help meet their needs going forward.
Previously Recorded on November 13, 2014... A lot has been written on the simplicity of creating a model from a point cloud, but when it comes to real-life workflows, it can get complicated. This one-hour presentation delves into best practices for how to model in Autodesk Revit with point clouds.
