Topcon Announces New Features Added to Web-Based Service for Mass Data Processing Software

LIVERMORE, Calif., U.S./ CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, the Netherlands – Topcon Positioning Group announces an update to MAGNET Collage Web — its web-based service for integration with the MAGNET® Collage desktop mass data processing software. MAGNET Collage Web version 1.1 offers new features and improvements designed to simplify collaboration and sharing of 3D point cloud data.

The update includes an embeddable public viewer designed to allow operators to send a link or embed a viewer to access a mass data model from any webpage. “Now you can easily share Collage Web projects publicly with anyone, even without a Topcon Enterprise account,” said David Ahl, director of software product management.

The system now also offers direct-to-web publishing from third-party UAV software including Bentley Context Capture and MAVinci Desktop software, with support for additional software packages forthcoming. Ahl said, “Operators can conveniently drag-and-drop UAV photographs and point clouds directly to MAGNET Collage Web with no need to pass through MAGNET Collage office software.

“Additionally, among the numerous new features, MAGNET Collage Web now provides sleek UAV visualization capabilities that handle georeferenced photos with the point cloud. Operators can overlay images, click to view individual images, and control settings for transparency with the software.

“It is another example of our commitment to The Intersection of Infrastructure and Technology — the point at which construction productivity can be improved by applying advanced positioning technology. As the technology for scanning and UAV software rapidly advance, MAGNET Collage solutions stay one step ahead in a user-friendly and intuitive 3D web-based environment,” said Ahl.

MAGNET Collage Web subscribers will receive the update automatically at no extra cost.
