GeoSLAM Launches Upgrade to Acclaimed Hub Software

by | Apr 2, 2019

GeoSLAM Hub 5.2 places user experience at the heart of the software and allows all customers of the ZEB family “ both long-time and new “ to access the latest features with universal compatibility. New check-in, check-out licensing means users can publish and share their work from the office and field while remotely collaborating on the datasets with coworkers all over the world, without the need for a dongle.

In the latest update, GeoSLAM have created a number of new editions of the GeoSLAM Draw module, including additional packages that provide specific features to suit a range of different industries and projects. The Draw Start module “ which comes as standard for every user “ allows clients to create simple floor plans and georeference data, as well as use 360 degree panoramic imagery with all datasets.

 If users want to share and deliver these floorplans with their coworkers, they can upgrade to the Draw Plan module, which includes a Web Export tool to produce PDF and HTML files that allows all stakeholders to collaborate, with or without a license. Users can also examine GeoSLAM data in Autodesk thanks to RCP file export.

 The Draw BIM module is ideal for those carrying out technical surveys or building 3D models. Using the 4Revit tool, the module improves workflows for the 3D modeling of pointclouds by communicating directly with Autodesk Revit. This helps clients produce complex deliverables and can include data from different surveying tools.

 Finally, the Draw Pro module provides the complete GeoSLAM Draw package, including all of the previous features, as well as additional elements for volume calculations and profiling, including the creation of mesh DTMs and surface change measurements.

 Commenting on the update, GeoSLAM CEO, Shelly Copsey said:

 Our transformative technology is as much about the software as it is the hardware. The introduction of sector modules within Draw is recognition of the importance of well-designed digital workflows specific to our customers' applications. GeoSLAM Hub was already the go to software for processing and visualising geospatial data, and we're excited to offer our clients a more flexible and innovative product.
