Measurable 3D site surveys

View your entire site with a 3D model so realistic you can use it for virtual walkthroughs. Our earthworks software streamlines your stockpile measurements, road-grade checks, design conformance checks, and volumetrics. 

Interactive, visual timeline of your site

Visually assess how your site is doing today or over its lifetime in the timeline slider. Upload design surfaces or linework to see how you’re faring against the final grade with easy-to-understand single-point, cross-section, and surface-to-surface comparisons.

Composite survey

Easier access to more frequent survey data

Composite Surveys make it possible to fly and upload small, active sections of your site and then merge them with other surveys to form a more holistic view of your worksite.  Stitching multiple surveys together removes the need to map your entire site every time, which in turn, saves you hours of work out on site.

Quick and easy terrain cleanups

Streamline your survey data QA by cleaning up your terrain to remove inaccuracies and obstructions, so you can be confident in your quantities. Easily maintain accuracy and consistency by managing who can make edits, and track changes as they happen.
