VRT’s 3D surveys produce georeferenced data of the surveyed assets or areas. Every single point of the point cloud has its XYZ coordinates in a defined coordinate system. The combination of RTK (Real Time Kinematics) and PPK (Post-Processing Kinematics) ensures that the data is accurate enough to be used in various asset management operations.
1 Combine different data for a digital twin
Creating a digital twin requires that all the data is georeferenced and in the same coordinate system. Then you can combine the point clouds, 2D and 3D models and other asset data together to form a coherent digital twin.
2 Utilise the data in spatial analysis
Georeferenced data can be utilised for example to measure and calculate distances, areas and volumes. Check the suitability of a quay area for an arriving vessel or do measurements for the location of a new storage area.
3 Compare datasets from different times
Sometimes it is important to see the difference between datasets. For example, knowing erosion and accumulation rates is important in planning the dredging intervals in ports. You can follow how a damage is developing or if the construction goes as planned.
4 Update your asset information
Asset information, like the coordinates of underwater cables or pipelines, or the drawing of a building, can be lost or outdated during the asset’s lifecycle. With georeferenced data from a 3D survey you can update the information to all the necessary databases.
