Lovion MEASURE APP Mobile Surveying
Augmented Reality for Surveyor and Network Operator
Surveying House Connections with the Smartphone or Tablet
House connections, explorations and other surveying is directly measured through the camera of a smartphone or a tablet in three easy steps. No other hardware such as expensive GNSS receivers or laser devices for measuring distances are required.
1. Recording Reference Objects
At least three reference objects such as the corner of buildings, shaft lids or walls are recorded so that geometries can be correctly georeferenced and transformed in GIS or CAD.
2. Surveying Pipelines
Afterwards, all house connection elements are measured and automatically photographed by clicking on the screen.
3. Export and E-Mail
All surveyed reference and pipeline objects are exported as GIS data, together with the photo documentation. A PDF sketch is simultaneously created for the survey.
Specially developed for on-site Technicians
The Lovion MEASURE APP was specially developed for technicians, service technicians and civil engineering companies. Thus, documentation can commence immediately after the installation. Specially trained surveyors are not required on site. As a result, valuable time and costs are saved and ensure that the documentation is done while the trench is still open.
Accuracy of 10-20 cm
Inertial sensors and cameras of iOS devices are calibrated and enable an accuracy of about 10-20 cm. By recording numerous reference objects in the first step, the data can be easily georeferenced and transformed in GIS and CAD with the help of other data, such as ALKIS or orthographic photos. The internal GPS accuracy serves as a rough localisation.
- On-site quality assurance
- real-time documentation
- Easy handling (video recording)
- Accuracy of 10-20 cm only with smartphone
- Complete digital data flow without hand sketches or interfaces
- Cost-effective (only smartphone hardware required)
Complete digital Process without Media Breaks
File Creation for GIS Data Export including Photo Documentation and PDF Sketch
The Lovion MEASURE APP features standard objects for various divisions and can be implemented without extensive configuration. However, it can be adapted according to user needs.
The results of the survey include point, line and areal geometries that can be immediately imported into GIS or CAD. Survey points are simultaneously documented with a photo and time stamp as well as the position. A PDF sketch is automatically created at the end of the survey. The layout can ba adapted according to the user's requirements
A data transfer is done via e-mail. The data is exclusively saved on the mobile device and the company's system. A synchronised cloud backup is optional.
On-site Quality Assurance and complete Documentation in real Time
All recorded assets are immediately displayed in their real location via the video frame. As a result, the integrity and location accuracy can be inspected. If necessary, the survey is repeated. The status bar is colour-coded (red - yellow - green), directly providing feedback about the quality of the survey.
