Once a year the kubit resellers from around the world gather at kubit’s Dresden offices to review and discuss developments in surveying software and new products for the next year. I have just returned from the 2011 conference and am really pleased to report that the future of kubit software looks really promising. Both PhoToPlan and PointCloud have some new really powerful and important new tools that will help extract more information from the PointCloud or Photograph quicker and easier.
There will be many posts in the coming weeks and months to detail these improvements but briefly;
PointCloud: (both Basic and Pro) now include Orthographic Image Generation – a quick and easy to use tool that is ideal for extracting plans and elevations for tracing. There is also a new focus on industry specific tools – the first of these is PointSense Plant. PointCloud also benefits from the improvements to the pointcloud engine in AutoCAD 2012.
PhoToPlan: In addition to many workflow improvements, the tool will also feature a new ortho image tool – generating Orthographic Photographs from the combination of geometry (or pointclouds) and orientated images.
Detailed announcements will be made soon.
