OrthoGraph Architect

Description

PDA-based Building Survey SoftwareThe OrthoGraph Survey and Architect are unique, pocket PC-based real estate surveying softwares that makes graphic ground-plan surveying easier, faster, and more accurate than ever before. They not only replace paper-based assessment and data storage, they save you time, labor and money. Get one step ahead of your competitors!The OrthoGraph software line and surveying methodology have been developed with the participation of leading experts with decade-old experience in real estate surveying, who are familiar with all of the practical problems that may arise during on-site work. The software, therefore, has undergone comprehensive testing in practice during real-life surveys, so you can be sure it meets the requirements of fast and cost-efficient surveys.Most Important Benefits of the Software: * Time-saving surveying - You can conduct the survey three to four times faster than with the traditional method. * Cost-efficient assessment - You can achieve up to 75% cost saving compared to the conventional surveying method. * Outstanding productivity - Thanks to this fast and efficient survey, you will waste less time on the site. * Labor efficiency - Even if the surveyor works individually, that is, without any aide, he or she can conduct the survey accurately and quickly. * More orders for real estate surveying - Win your customers' confidence and loyalty with fast and accurate work, using our state-of-the-art solution. * Electronic ground-plan right on the site - The electronic drawing of the ground-plan is made right on the site on the basis of the survey. The drawing is compatible with almost all CAD and CAFM systems. * Controlled data entry - Any omissions or inaccurate data can be detected right on the site, thereby identifying the need for measurements or control measurements. * Easy review of the data - The process of real estate surveying is easily reviewable thanks to the structured data handling. During the work process, the PDA always shows the important details, and thus ensures good reviewability despite the small size of the device. * Accuracy - Precise, detailed surveying of small details, rooms, and even larger industrial buildings. Assess as much data as necessary.And many more... * Team work support (OrthoGraphO Survey only) - Several surveyors can work independently on different parts of a real estate. The team work support feature enables the easy handling of even large quantities of data. * No need for additional assessments - You can record controlled information right on the site: you can employ type, key, and mandatory fields and fixed lists. Eliminates burdensome and costly added assessments. * Estimation of wall finishing materials - You can get accurate information right on the site about the quantities of each covering material required. * Support of laser distance recorder - The software fully supports the Leica Disto A6 manual laser distance recorder, which is equipped with Bluetooth technology, enabling (thanks to wireless data gathering) faster and more accurate work than traditional surveying. * CAD and CAFM support - Almost all architectural CAD systems are supported by the software, including ArchiCAD, AutoCAD, and Allplan CAD, as well as the ArchiFM facility management software. * Outstanding flexibility - You can use an industrial or manual distance recorder, or even a measuring tape, for the surveying.Simplify Your Work!By using the OrthoGraph surveying software, you can prevent data from being omitted from the survey as well as inaccurate data. The data are immediately available in an electronic form, and can be checked right on the site on the PDA screen. The result of the survey can be immediately read by other software or printed according to scale. The system supports the major data formats (.dwg, .xls, .xml, .pdf, .txt, etc.). In addition, direct data base connection can be established, too.Save Time, Effort and Money!The findings of the survey are immediately compiled by the software in an electronic form, thereby eliminating the need for additional data recording. Since the entire surveying process is controlled, the software immediately signals distortions and deficiencies. As a result, any errors that occurred are revealed right on the site; therefore there is no need for costly and time-consuming additional assessments. Upon completion of the survey, the software shows whether all required information is available or additional measurements have to be made on the site for clarification. This means that by using the system, you can save time, labor and money, and the ground-plan made by the software will be very accurate and subsequently easily usable.Flexible Data ProcessingThe findings of the survey can be saved in DWG format so that in the future they may be used in virtually every architectural CAD programs. If that is not required, you may want to print scaled-down or enlarged ground-plans and books about the areas by means of the built-in PDF-format reports of the OrthoGraph ProjectManager module. For this, you need only to push a button. If the tasks to be carried out include inventory and data gathering, the data recording function of the OrthoGraph Inventory is conveniently available.Learn More About the Operation of the OrthoGraphO Survey and Architect!The system consists of two software elements: a PC component (ProjectManager) and a PDA component (Surveyor).Most Important Functions of the OrthoGraphO Survey and Architect: * Handling spaces in a hierarchic structure * Preparing sketches of ground-plans * Automated graphic assessment * Connecting places - "floating islands" function * Handling "ghost layers" - display of drawn areas in the background * Handling objects and ground-plan symbols * Team-work support (OrthoGraphO Survey only) * Support of the Leica Disto A6 laser distance recorder * Full-scale inventory function of the OrthoGraph Inventory. (OrthoGraphO Survey only)The first step of the survey is the drawing of a sketch of the area on the site, which is used as the basis for the survey. The software controls the automated surveying process on the basis of the sketch and the result of the process is an accurate electronic ground-plan. The speed and accuracy of the process can be increased by using a laser distance recorder. Leica's Disto A6 model not only handles the surveying data but can simultaneously manage the entire surveying process.The system handles the logical structure and relationships of areas in a tree-structure. The levels of the tree structure progress from larger units to smaller ones (e.g., plot, building, floor, and room). With the help of the OrthoGraph ProjectManager, we can predefine the types and properties of the levels of the hierarchy. During the survey, the OrthoGraph Survey works with the recorded structure.Various zone types may be created within each level of the structure, with the help of which neighboring logical structural elements can be visually well distinguished and assigned by various characteristics (e.g., tenants or organizational units can be separated; parts of an area can be separated on the basis of their wall finishing materials, etc.).The structural arrangement largely enhances the user's ability to view the data during both the survey and the subsequent data usage. On-site surveys begin with the identification of the structural arrangement. The hierarchic structure shows the relationship between the elements of the ground-plan as well as their location in the world.The surveying data pertaining to each hierarchic element are recorded one by one, enabling the user to record the most important properties of each element of the structure. These properties are information pertaining to the ground-plan whose recording considerably increases the usability of the survey results. These data can be textual (e.g., postal addresses), numerical (e.g., floor number, financial identification numbers), or describe distances (e.g., internal height). Not only fixed lists and marking squares can be used but even images and file attachments.Upon specifying the related data, graphic surveying is commenced. This process consists of two phases: first, a sketch is made and then second, the actual surveying takes place.In the user interface, the programme offers a wide range of tools for making the sketch: lines may be drawn manually, angles may be specified, perpendicular and parallel lines may be drawn to existing lines, arched wall sections can be drawn, etc. Closed areas may be modified by moving, deleting or adding corners, arching or straightening walls, and adding doors, windows, and items of furniture.In order to receive an accurate ground-plan of the area, we have to measure various distances. This is the most spectacular and most special part of the process because it is this function of the system that enables the creation of electronic architectural data, including information about the ground-plan, doors and windows, engineering elements and furnishings, simultaneously with the on-site survey of the ground-plan. The system supports the survey with an automatic surveying algorithm; it shows missing measurements and recommends the ensuing measurements.. OrthoGraph Building Survey and Asset Inventory Softwares.
