Unique Features

 

 

VERSATILE & COMPACT DESIGN
 

VERSATILE & COMPACT DESIGN


HERON's capture head can be docked to telescopic poles or to the rugged backpack or mounted on vehicles (cars, quads, boats, etc.). The rugged backpack can be used both as a mapping support and a transport case. HERON's compactness and robustness allow its use in demanding and aggressive environments.

 

LOOP CLOSURE NOT MANDATORY
 

LOOP CLOSURE NOT MANDATORY


Thanks to patented and innovative SLAM algorithms, HERON makes the mapping trajectory very flexible. Surveyors are not forced to start and finish their mapping at the same point!

 

PARAMETERS' FULL CONTROL
 

PARAMETERS' FULL CONTROL


HERON users can easily access the post-processing procedure thanks to a fully automatic workflow. HERON also provides a unique “advanced mode” which allows setting every single parameter of the SLAM processing interface.

 

CONSTRAINTS APPROACH
 

CONSTRAINTS APPROACH


HERON supports the use of control points as constraints. They can be collected on the field with HERON or recognized in post-processing onto the point cloud directly. HERON can also use georeferenced control scans as constraints. The use of constraints keeps drifts and accuracy under the full control of the surveyor.

 

HERON Blueprint
 

GOBLUEPRINT


A free tool to easily share x-ray/depth maps of HERON models with final clients. Not expert users too can then visualize the surveyed area in a simple 2D interface and take measures in a very intuitive way. GoBlueprint runs on any Windows-based computer or tablet.

 

DATA INTEGRATION
 

DATA INTEGRATION


The Reconstructor software included with HERON is the solution to combine point cloud models from various lidar sensors and in different formats. Static scans, LAS files, point clouds from UAV, and BIM models can be managed in the same software. Moreover, HERON can be the easy and fast way to connect point cloud models located indoors and outdoors of the mapped site.

 

DIRECT EXPORT
 

DIRECT EXPORT TO RECAP


HERON models can be easily shared and exported in the most common formats, such as .rcp for Autodesk® ReCap or E57. This means a brilliant workflow in data processing and professional results guarantee. Point cloud models from a HERON mapping project can be easily imported into third-party software for “scan-to-BIM” and progress monitoring applications, or any other post-processing analysis.

 

DIGITAL TWIN
 

DIGITAL TWIN


HERON 3D models can be navigated by immersive tours or uploaded on cloud-sharing platforms for Digital Twin projects. HERON provides a direct connection with Cintoo Cloud, 3DUserNetVISION, 3DMapping Cloud, and Scene WebShare. HERON customers can benefit from dedicated offers.
