Laser Scan Database Available on Android Smartphone

CSA Laser Scanning Technology, PanoMap®, provided in a photo-realistic format, is available on a smartphone or tablet
(Android), and is designed for plant walkdowns, survey inspections and spatial field applications. The smartphone PanoMap
application can hold thousands of 360° laser scans. Its database is created on a PC using CSA’s PanoMap software and trans-
ferred to the smartphone. The database can include the original scans as well as 3D CAD models merged into the scans.

                                                                                  3D scan

The smartphone enables access to a plant spatial database of 3D scans, for specific tasks.
The user can navigate through scans via the keyplans showing specific locations. Individ-
ual areas are identified by buildings, floors, or zones. The user selects an area in the key-
plan, taps on a scan, and the scan is displayed.
Another access is via a plant walkthrough generated from individual scans. The walk-            Navigate to hyperlinked scans

vey path, or other spatial information. The user can analyze the walkthrough path on his
computer or follow it on his smartphone while in the plant. The system automatically displays
the highlighted pipeline, conduit, or component as it appears in different laser scans.
A recent application consisted of 30 pipelines in a nuclear power plant, which were marked
and viewed in a continuous manner by stepping through the applicable laser scans. Identify-
ing and following the survey path can be a very useful tool in the nuclear industry for ALARA
CSA software supports scan data collected by laser scanners from all major manufacturers
using either the native laser scan format or .ptx format. Laser scan data from different
sources is converted into PanoMap format by utilizing CSA LSSM (Laser Scan Space Man-
ager) technology. LSSM is the mastering module that also includes laser scan data (point
cloud) processing and automatic registration.
One of the major benefits of PanoMap is compact file size—the point cloud data is repro-
duced in PanoMap format, without compromising the accuracy of the data.

 Applications in development include:
     Using the phone camera to take images that will be integrated with the scans
     Voice recording of inspections and walkdown data
