HERON AC-1 Color

Product Name:HERON AC-1 Color
Product Description:HERON® AC-1 Color is a new AC-1 version. Designed for customers that need to joint to the point cloud model and the 360° panoramic camera color images. HERON® AC-1 Color can be used in any condition where a fast imaging data are necessary to recognized objects difficult to be recognized from the point cloud.

User interfaces: 1) On site real Time visualisation, georeferencing and check of the 3D acquisition (thanks to 3D local maps generation ) 2) In your office place, import your Data in the Heron Desktop software and get high accuracy global optimization. Thanks to the JRC 3D Reconstruction integration button you can also merge Heron 3D pointcloud with other high resolution tripod scans. 3: (OPTIONAL STEP) Heron owns an unique plus, the tracking mode! Thanks to this HERON® will compare the 3D point cloud model with the new acquisitions and it will give you the right position in real time, in this way you can easily check in real time the changes between the actual geometry and the previously surveyed one!

More information 
Main applications:Facility management - Security (change detection) - Fast survey for surveying costs evaluation
Training facilities:YES
Distinguishable features:HERON® AC-1 Color mantains the same technical characteristics of AC-1: 2cm local accuracy and an extimated global accuracy of 5cm (Global Heron surveying accuracy is estimated in 5 cm in short close rings but in general terms is function of the geometry of the surveyed area. Long paths and different working situation can move the accuracy down to 10-20 cm). Thanks to the professional indoor/outdoor 3D real time mapping, localization and change detection functions, you can add colors on a photographic survey. This tool can speed up the object identification process for facility management projects.
