On the left-hand side, you can see the standard Smallworld Physical Network Inventory user interface, overlaid on the map as a series of blue dots. Each dot represents a location where spherical imagery and LiDAR data was acquired (by the vehicle partially shown in the image on the right).
Users can access the OrbitGT data directly within the Smallworld environment, and the data is shown at the same time. As the user navigates in the spherical imagery on the right, the fan shared symbols indicate the field of view overlaid on the Smallworld map. Objects in Smallworld can be overlaid onto the spherical imagery and measurements taken and used directly in Smallworld.
This level of integration and flexibility now gives the office user an accurate window onto the world outside the office. Giving the planning, design, and operations teams access to this level of imagery can minimize the number of truck rolls, resulting in cost savings and an increase in the quality of new designs. These improvements are due to the much greater situational awareness that is now possible — bringing the field to the desktop.
