Topcon Positioning Group has unveiled new software designed to facilitate data processing workflow for UAV infrastructure inspection.
Named Magnet Inspect, the software aims to efficiently manage large UAV data sets to create inspection reports.
The software has been designed to allow operators to easily visually navigate UAV photos, aligning 3D reality meshes with raw geo-referenced images in one location and filtering them based on selected criteria.
David Ahl, director of software product management, said: “Magnet Inspect will work with models from virtually any UAV. When combined with Intel Falcon 8+ Drone Topcon Edition and Topcon ContextCapture, the software enables operators to efficiently navigate, annotate, and create reports with inspection photos, effectively creating a very strong end-to-end inspection workflow.”
He added: “It is now a key element of the Topcon end-to-end UAV and data processing workflow for inspection projects, which results in increased safety and faster data collection than traditional methods.”
Topcon Positioning Group’s European head office is based in the Netherlands and is headquartered in California.
