Land Surveyor

Volume Measurement, surface editor. High-resolution 3D map building. Earthwork.

The application Volume Measurement allows you to measure the area, volume of pile bounded by a maximum of 300 points connected by straight lines in real time. These points must be measured, taken from memory, or set via the keyboard. The measured area is projected onto an inclined reference plane defined by its points (3D). Volumes are automatically measured by calculating the digital terrain model (DTM) in the local coordinate system, where the first base point is taken as the origin. Triangulations of irregularly distributed points, known as Triangulated Irregular Networks (TIN) allow incorporation of terrain break lines (ridges, valleys), and extreme locations (e.g., summits) to better represent the terrain.

Handy feature:
-positioning the receiver (phone screen) by the Sun for easy orientation on the terrain;
-cylindrical coordinates (azimuth(θ), distance(r) to the previous point, difference in elevation between the points(z);
-editing coordinates manually (and therefore recalculating) P, Lat,Lon, H ⇆ P X Y Z;
-exporting the surface to autocad (you just need to drag the script generated by the application from the Explorer to the autocad workspace and automatically draw the surface from 3D faces);
-removing duplicate points;
-clipping points that go beyond the base surface;
-calculating the area;
-exporting points to excel (csv)
