Teledyne BlueView is a provider of underwater 3D acoustic imaging equipment used to inspect, monitor, measure and quantify areas of interest below the surface. The 3D Scanning Sonars scan from a fixed location and produce a detailed point cloud centered on the scan location. To obtain data over larger areas, multiple, overlapping point clouds are collected from various scan locations. Editing and combining the various adjacent point clouds was time consuming and difficult to do using standard off-the-shelf 3D registration software.
According to the developers, QuickStitch was designed specifically for data collected with a Teledyne BlueView 3D Scanning Sonar to streamline the review, cleaning and alignment process. Developed by EIVA from the NaviModel solution, which is part of the NaviSuite software suite, QuickStitch is based on hydrographic software. QuickStitch has a simple GUI with powerful features which include point to point measurement, data editing, point cloud alignment (manual and automatic), enhanced visualization options and data export.
The software provides current and future 3D Scanning Sonar customers with a solution for reviewing, cleaning and aligning multiple point clouds.
