Hate making scan notes with a pen and paper?

Post by davegrrr » Mon May 20, 2019 9:15 am

If you’ve ever needed to track scan positions on site, you’ll know how frustrating it is to try and map those locations with a pen and paper. Well, from now on you don’t have to! You can easily record your scanning and target locations as you move through a scene with the new Vercator® app. Upload a hand-drawn sketch or even a 2D floor plan for greater accuracy to plot your network. Add new projects, levels and scan details, then simply drag scans to the right spot and link them together. Once set, just export a CSV and use the network into your registration software.

You can download the app from the Apple or Google stores:

Google: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... e.Vercator

Can we take down target and control notes?

Never mind it does allow changing the target name.

$2 something to buy so I can share projects. Not bad.

The app looks clean and runs nice. And most of all is simple.

Would be nice if we could import a DWG or PDF.

Maybe add the ability for Voice notes (add tag with saved voice clip)
Maybe add compatibility with 360 Cameras (add tag in map that matches name of image off the 360 camera)
Maybe take GPS from phone to get a rough site map from OpenStreets/google maps
Ability to add survey control notes/icons (Traverse/control points, FS/BS lines, elevation Benchmarks)
can you differentiate visually between paper/sphere targets (maybe add separate icons)?

This is definitely a great start! I currently just use PDF Expert to draw on a pdf plan for my scan notes. This app definitely needs the ability to import a pdf of the floor plan.

@Melshy - do you mean sample data for our app or for Vercator registration software?
