How can dredging companies benefit from online 3D data platform?

There are many different types of situations as well as a large variability of industries involved in dredging operations. Therefore, dredging projects typically consist of a variety of different types of stakeholders. In order to achieve successful project results, it is essential to ensure all the project-related information is easily sharable and accessible to everyone involved.

How to utilise hydrographic 3D survey data

How to utilise hydrographic 3D survey data

The hydrographic data can be used to create maps or depth contours, detect underwater objects, or change in bathymetry. Especially in ports and seaways, it is essential to know the exact depth and possible objects in the seabed which affect maritime transport. You need to know if there is enough depth for navigating vessels or if there is a need for dredging.

Bought a ROV? Tips to get the best value for your investment

Bought a ROV? Tips to get the best value for your investment

Imagine you’ve done a comprehensive underwater survey of your assets, and the 3D data is easily available through an online service. And let’s say there’s been a collision on the quay or there’s some object near the seaway. You can quickly put your ROV to work, take pictures of the damage or object, and upload those pictures into a 3D model with correct coordinates.

New approach to BIM – point cloud as 3D model

New approach to BIM – point cloud as 3D model

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is commonly understood as a shared 3D model of a structure enriched with metadata, like material information. Other dimensions such as time (scheduling), cost, or different levels of operational processes can also be added to BIM, making it a construction phase tool and an important database for the structure’s entire life cycle.
