Surveying and documenting without Media Breaks
The Module Lovion SURVEY supports technical surveying in the field and documenting new objects. Various common surveying methods such as the orthogonal or polar method and numerous incision calculations are supported. Objects are created within the data structure of the GIS feature class and imported into the GIS database along with the field book. All survey projects are displayed in a project overview. For each survey project, an areal geometry is created to define the survey area. This area is displayed in the status colour of the project.
All mathematical functions required for practical surveying are included in Lovion SURVEY. New objects are recorded using the following techniques:
- Orthogonal survey
- Polar survey
- Incision calculation
Polar surveying supports free positioning. Furthermore, different incision calculations are available. Locally measured coordinates can be transformed into the target coordinate system (e.g. Gauß-Krüger or ETRS89) using the Helmert transformation. Existing object geometries can be determined using on-site orthogonal or polar markings. Additional survey points can be created for markings using geometries of existing equipment. Subsequently, the relative orthogonal or polar markings are determined for these survey points.
- Orthogonal survey and markings
- Free positioning
- Polar survey and markings
- Straight line/arch cut
- Helmert transformation
- Parallel construction and dimensioning
The basic version of Lovion SURVEY already contains a coordinate import function. Coordinate files are standardly imported in CSV-format. Imported survey points are displayed in a preview. If symbol codes are configured for object types, then objects are automatically created during the import. If no symbol codes are defined, objects can be inserted into the point cloud at a later stage. Survey points can als be imported into the local coordinate system. A transformation into the actual coordinate system is possible.
Digital Field Books
Digital field books are a further result originating from the survey. Object geometries and survey elements form a part of the field book. Further styles, for example pipeline descriptions and redlinings can be constructed using redlining functions in Lovion BIS. For each division, a separate field book layer is produced. This layer can be made visible or invisible for plotting. An analogue field book pre-print can be implemented as a plot template and used for the field book. The map key is automatically supplemented with project information. Thus, producing digital field books is very easy and can be done directly in the system.
Field Book View
After recording new objects, geometries and survey elements might be positioned closely or even overlapping. In order to shift these in the digital field book, a field book view can be used. Survey points along with corresponding survey elements and object geometries are eidtable and can be shifted accordingly. A PDF file based on the modified visualization can be created for the field book.
Integrated Surveying Software
The module Lovion SURVEY can also be implemented with an interface for a measuring device. This means that a separate surveying software can be integrated. Users can choose between the software KIVID®-Feld and Trimble® Survey ManagerTM. Each surveying software contains the necessary driver for the device. As a result, the selection is dependent on the applied device. All current tachymeters and GPS receivers are supported.
