Point Cloud Processor and Volumes Manager to Track Project Progress

In the video below we show an overview of using the RPS Point Cloud Processor and RPS Volumes Manager command to process and track project quantities over time.

The process can be combined with RPS Tracker on site to track and monitor material movements using Cycle and Load Counting methods on your excavation and haulage equipment, so you can get a direct correlation between volumes moved based on survey / drone flights and volumes moved based on loads / cycles.

The benefits of the RPS / TBC processes are

  • Use Point Cloud Processor to minimize the size of the point cloud used for creating the weekly survey surfaces while retaining a high degree of surface integrity through the smart processing of point clouds. In this example a 20 million point point cloud is reduced to 300,000 points for the final models
  • Use RPS Volumes Manager to define the site boundaries, boundary groups for reporting purposes and then computing the volume calculations and generating drawing elements including volume tables and isopach models as well as output quality report deliverables for each survey period.
  • Use RPS Volumes Manager to track and manage all of the progress quantity results generated for the project over the duration of the project, and being able to recall the volumes at any time.
