Maptek I-Site Studio™ 3.1 takes scan processing to the next level

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

Maptek I-Site Studio 3.1™ represents the latest advance in the mining industry’s most powerful scan processing software.

‘We’ve listened to what I-Site Studio users have been asking for, and have spent many months adding fantastic enhancements that’ll deliver even more meaningful results from scan data’, said I-Site Product Marketing Manager, Raj Elakkara.

‘If I had to pick my top 3 new features, I’d have to go with ‘creating animations from a series of key frames’, ‘applying photographic imagery to modelled surfaces’, and the ‘flexible file formats’ we now support. These enhancements will certainly make a surveyor’s job easier,’ he added.

I-Site is a favourite among laser processing scan products and is today used at several coal mines in the Bowen Basin for face mapping, pit survey and stockpile measurement – powerful tools combined with an intuitive user interface that relies on drag and drop functionality, and simple menu options makes it easy to use, whether you’re building models, performing data analysis, or creating movies.

Another new development from Maptek is the I-Site mobile mapping system, which combines the power of the I-Site 4400 long range laser scanner with a vehicle-mounted, GPS tracking system that captures fully registered laser scan data from the driver’s seat.

Scan data is easily transferred onto a USB drive, which is then imported into I-Site Studio for data modelling and visualisation.

I-Site’s Sales and Technical Services Surveyor for Eastern Australia, Luke Czaban, stated that ‘The current I-Site 4400LR laser scanner combined with our new I-Site Studio and MMS products provide surveyors with the latest technology to carry out a wide range of mine survey tasks.’

‘Maptek adds value to operations by our commitment to ongoing product development, which is driven by practical field experience all the way along the line. This expertise is then shared with customers through our training and support services, which are without peer in the industry,’ he added.
