Software designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of point cloud editing for construction


Agtek, part of Hexagon, has introduced Reveal, a new AI-accelerated software tool designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of point cloud editing for construction applications.

Reveal allows users to delete unnecessary objects, automatically using the power of AI for ‘faster and more accurate’ takeoff and quantity tracking.

Designed specifically for the heavy construction industry for use with point clouds collected from drones or laser scanners, Reveal eliminates the need to manually remove elements from point cloud datasets

Using AI, Reveal ‘recognises’ the objects it captures on site and clusters them into groups, such as construction vehicles, material stockpiles, ground and vegetation.

Users can quickly remove each of these groups, providing a clear picture of the site. This can help teams in the field and the office to more easily understand the project volumes and work progress.

“As a grading contractor, we want the data to represent the dirt,” says Ken Fritts, engineering services technical manager at Goodfellow Bros.

“We do not get paid to move the vehicles, trees, tall grass and structures. Reveal has the intelligence and precision needed to automate the sorting and clean-up of millions of points in just minutes.”
