The release of MAGNET v2.0, a Topcon enterprise solution for the geomatics industry, provides more than 30 substantial additions or upgrades to the Enterprise, Field and Office packages. Enterprise is a cloud service designed for the supervising manager that connects the Field and Office products and provides a collaborative web-based interface to company data. Cloud-based collaboration and real-time data exchange makes MAGNET a productivity enhancing solution for virtually any operation.
Jason Hallett, Topcon vice president for software product management said, “MAGNET is the industry leader in cloud computing and real-time data exchange. Now with v2.0, the total product suite has been elevated to a new level. Not only does MAGNET allow for real-time collaboration between the project manager, job foreman, job site crews, office personnel, engineers and consultants, it also introduces myriad new features that will increase productivity in every aspect of every job.”
Key new developments are expanded functionality for BIM and GIS applications. MAGNET v2.0 now has customized packages designed for building layout and high accuracy GIS application.
A unique new feature is Hybrid Positioning™ technology, available in the MAGNET Field solution package. It provides the option to simultaneously connect to GNSS signals and robotic measurements on a single rover pole. “This is a powerful feature that is easily managed in MAGNET,” Hallett said.
“Topcon continues to bring efficiencies in productivity by providing the ability to maintain simultaneous connections to a robot and a GPS rover when using the Hybrid Positioning module.”
Other key features available to enhance data workflow and automation include:
“With MAGNET a company can manage its positioning data and field information to ensure maximum efficiency in all facets of each project. The exciting new BIM and GIS features makes it the most productive workflow solution for almost every precise positioning and mapping professional,” Hallett said.
MAGNET v2.0 is available for use with Topcon and Sokkia instruments and is available through subscription service so the user has continuous access to the latest features. MAGNET Field and Office products can also be purchased for stand-alone use.
