What can I do
in the Platform?
Sensat's common visualisation platform can host, combine, visualise, crop and download all the point clouds associated with your project, with no limit on size.
You can make cm accurate measurements of areas, heights, profiles, points, angles and volumes in a few clicks, from any computer or smart device.
With location-based messaging you can quickly share information with team members around the site for efficient working.
About and credits
As a leading cloud-based site management tool, the Platform allows companies in the civil infrastructure space to visualise, monitor and manage dynamic project performance. Our common visualisation platform is built on some proprietary technologies, but also stands on the shoulders of giants. Based on an intrinsically motivated model, we believe at Sensat that open source is the future, and corresponds with our values of transparency and accountability. We’d like to acknowledge some open source projects in particular for providing great foundations for our work:
Potree: WebGL-based point cloud renderer for large point clouds. The Platform uses a modified version to index and render 3D point clouds.
Three.js: WebGL 3D rendering library, used by Potree and directly in the Platform for drawing geometries and 3D computations.
GDAL: translator library for raster and vector geospatial data formats. The Platform uses several functions and tools to index 2D assets and for most coordinate transformations.
OpenLayers: high-performance, feature-packed library for mapping needs. The Platform relies on this library for rendering tiled and vector layers in 2D.
