Pixprocessing_Mining is a cutting-edge software solution based on photogrammetry and computer vision for the 3D object reconstruction and detailed object analysis. Developed focusing on the major challenges of the Mining industry, it possesses a wide range of features that speed up and facilitate your daily work as well as provides essential information for effective business management.
COMPREHENSIVE 3D MODELS
The object visualization in a 3D mode has never been so easy – no matter the size of the object, enjoy the navigation through different dimensions without losing even a smallest detail. Large data visualization engine enables you to zoom in, zoom out, drag the visualizing zone from one object to another, without losing a speed or visualizing quality.
NEW! Reconstruction Quality Enhancement
In case the initial data set fails to perform respective reconstruction,additional feature filtering and matching improvements are employed when adding the photos.
FULL-SCALE OBJECT RECONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
Wide range of photo management options enables the user to process the photos acquired by any photo-camera. With Photo Manager you can also easily review, arrange, select or deselected the specific photos for further data processing.
NEW! Advanced Photo Calibration
Using the photographic EXIF information, a database of intrinsic camera parameters provides a fast way to calibrate photos for optimal photogrammetric results. In case of EXIF data unavailability, the software offers an automated process of intrinsic parameter detection and calibration.
NEW! Automated Calibration
Ability to detect and save camera intrinsic parameters from previous reconstructions that used autocallibration eliminates the need to use autocallibration in future projects reducing time consumption.
Sparse point clouds are often intended to represent the external surface of an object. For the best user experience, we offer 3 reconstruction levels: Low, Medium, High.
Dense Point Cloud generation
Dense point clouds are the key elements in creating a 3D mesh from the original 2D footage. Denser 3D point clouds result in better visualization and positioning, though may require more powerful machines and consume more time.
Digital elevation model provides detailed terrain information. DEM layer is useful for quick and unlimited visualization of surface relief and accurate object analysis. The shading options variety as well as cropping and hole-filling options enable you to adjust the DEM for further 2D and 3D measurements.
Though most up-to-date UAVs have on-board cameras to obtain the geotagged images, some professional projects need high-end accuracy. In such case, one can add GCPs from his/her RTK GPS device.
GCP (Ground Control Points) are used to lock your object data into the local coordinate system. It also plays an essential role in comparing the same object in different time lapse. Save time and simplify the comparison process by easily setting the initial GCPs and memorizing it for the future projects.
NEW! No software limitations for the True Orthophoto generation!
Accurate True Orthophoto is an indispensable tool when precise measurements of distances are required. It gives you an accurate map in every angle and ratio, and is one of the most cost-effective and accurate mapping tools.
CONVENIENCE AND SIMPLICITY
Save time and adjust the workflow according to your needs. Select the needed process steps by clicking the checkmark and let the software do the entire workflow without your intervention. Amend and customize it as many times as you want.
NEW! Smooth Workflow Assurance
Eliminated possibility of running out of disk space before generating the Dense Point Cloud or True Orthophoto.
Project Lock function lets you prevent the project data damage when working with the same project from different software instances.
ADVANCED VISUALIZATION TOOLS
Wide Variety of Object Highlighting Options
Make your reports more expressive by highlighting elements that you need. Use different colours, bald option, different element format to accentuate its importance. Moreover, you can select the separate objects/elements to point out, no matter if it is in a set or drawn separately.
It is a great tool to showcase the height variation of the object. You can easily variate:
- – Colour ramp pallete
– Colour change scale
– Texture options
Shading option is a crucial feature when dealing with converging objects as it quickly accentuates the surface irregularities.
Min and max height value selection of the histogram enables a better visualization of the object elements in the selected height level.
Hole-filling is very important when dealing with initial 3D model preparation for further object analysis and various simulations.
Initial (internal). Generated automatically at the 3D object creation phase. It completes all possible inconsistencies due to fluctuations in the scanned data.
External. Usually performed by the program user and consists of selecting the necessary “holes” to be filled in. Essential in project preparation for further analysis
Smart. Also performed by the program user, and is usually used for further object analysis, measurements and various simulations.
Perform a variety of simulations using different level out options. Fill the missing surface elements or exclude the unnecessary ones.
Level by minimizing – the selected area is levelled out by deleting everything till the lowest point of the selected area.
Level by averaging – the selected area is levelled out by bringing the average of the selected surface.
Level by maximizing – the selected area is levelled out by filling out the selected area by the highest point of the selected area.
A bounding box appears around selected object in a non-Wireframe viewport. It enables viewing and management of the selected area / element / part of the 3D model without unnecessary data.
COMPREHENSIVE CONTOUR-LINE MANAGEMENT
Advanced Contour-Line Drawing
Wide range of options for operating with the contour lines. You can select whether to draw: – A set of contour lines by defining the necessary spacing between the lines; – Each contour line separately without a need to submit spaces between different lines.
Advanced Contour-Line Management
Draw a separate contour line to showcase the needed level. It is a very useful feature providing visibility of the specific element level. Easily drag it up and down, till you find the suitable height. Add new contour lines one by one. Highlight only those that you need. Measure the distance between the selected contour-lines.
TAILORED MEASUREMENTS AND ANALYSIS TOOLS
2D & 3D Measurements
Get the precise measurements and analyze the object by using:
Point / Line (distance) / Profile (distance, altitude, angle) Polygon (slope, volume, perimeter) Surfaces – the 2D & 3D perimeter and 2D & 3D area, 3D volume, height and base area.
Draped Line Get the precise measurements of the stockpile crest by using a draped line option.
NEW! Advanced Polygon Management
Save time and calculate the volume of the definite object by selecting one of many object ground plane options.
Smart Polygon enables you to indicate only several initial points of the desired selection, let the software take over the further process of precise selection automatically. .
To increase the accuracy of the selection, you can manually insert the coordinates of the polygon anchor points.
Object Comparison in Time
This feature allows you to monitor the object changes in time, and get the valuable information for effective resource and workflow planning. It also enables you to prevent potential disasters and this way to increase the work safety on the object. Use this feature to detect the fraud cases in daily routine.
