Asset & Facilities Mgmt

Solutions for Asset & Facilities Mgmt
Asset and Facilities Monitoring involves the data collection, modelling, management and analysis of geographically referenced information from land, water, urban areas, assets existing on or under land, in or around buildings, facilities, and roads.
A tourist attraction below undefined boundaries
The Dachstein Glacier borders two Austrian states: Upper Austria and Styria. Exactly where these two borders meet was vaguely declared in 1949, after Linz and Graz, the capital cities of the two federal states, decided to end their parliament meeting by declaring that the border between the states ran along the watershed and the rocky cliffs. more
Virtual 3D Urban Design from Laser Scan Data
The Inselhalle in Lindau, Germany, a conference center on an island in Lake Constance, was to be refurbished and extended to meet modern requirements. Since only incomplete records of the original building existed, project organizers decided to capture the existing features of this old conference hall and its surroundings using laser scanning. The acquired data is now available to architectural consultants for their designs and for virtual “tours”. more
Modeling the World's Deepest Mine
Owned by Anglo Gold Ashanti and employing 6,000 people, Mponeng Mine is part of the old Western Deep Levels Complex, near Johannesburg, South Africa and, as of last year, is officially classified by The Guinness Book of Records as the world’s deepest mine. At its deepest point the mine extends to a depth of 4.1 km (2.5 mi) below surface, where the rock temperatures can reach 60 ˚C (140 °F) and the ambient temperature reaches 36 ˚C (97 °F). To highlight potential problem areas before the installation of a new conveyor, a monorail, and a chair-lift at the mine a survey was carried out to build an accurate asbuilt 3D model of the development. more
Scanning Beyond Retrofit Design
MegChem Engineering & Drafting Services (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, is a multi-discipline engineering company serving a diverse client base in the oil, gas, power generation, and energy related industries. The company, founded in 1995, is ISO 9001-certified and has more than 300 employees. They also have a Leica HDS6100 scanner, Cyclone, and CloudWorx software as part of their engineering services toolkit. more
Virtual Caves
The Piusa caves are a system of unique sandstone caves located in south-eastern Estonia only a few miles from the Russian border. The caves are the result of manual mining of glasssand during 1922 – 1966 and represent a system of underground galleries with sandstone columns and vaulted ceilings up to 10 m (30 ft) high. Since 2006 the caves have been closed to the public for safety reasons and only a small, secure part can be accessed today. 3D Technologies R&D scanned the caves and created the virtual caves provided at the visitor center using new interactive technology. more
Mighty Mo's Last Journey
When the USS Missouri was decommissioned on March 31st, 1992, the 887-foot-long Iowaclass battleship looked tired. Her worn and pitted teak deck had supported thousands of naval officers and their crews. The 1998 transfer of “Mighty Mo” to the nonprofit USS Missouri Memorial Association of Honolulu, Hawaii, spawned a new career for the historic battleship as a World War II museum next to the USS Arizona on Pearl Harbor’s Battleship Row. But the directors had an even bigger vision in mind – one that involved repairing and preserving the battleship for generations to come. more
3D Laser Scanning in Room Acoustics
Every room has different acoustics determined by its construction and room geometry. Listeners auditory impressions are based on the objective human sense of hearing. more
Embracing Point Clouds
Loy Surveys had been aware for a number of years that laser scanning was going to be the next big thing in surveying and would eventually become a mainstream technology. They knew they would have to master it in order to stay at the leading edge of surveying. The only question was, when? Senior Surveyor Scott Macleod on how they met the challenge. more
3D Measuring for Building Refurbishment
In times of energy shortages and price increases, more attention is paid to ways to exploit energy saving potential. The CCEM Retrofit Project does exactly this in the building sector, an area thought to offer major energy saving potential. One approach to maximise saving potential is to jacket old buildings with prefabricated elements. An indispensable step in the process is highly accurate and reliable acquisition and provision of 3D planning data. This is where geomatics comes in, making an important contribution to future energy savings in buildings within the CCEM Retrofit Project. more
