Maptek’s Augmented Reality Mining App


This has to be one of the most impressive, real world uses of augmented reality that I have seen. An Australian industry journal reports that, “Maptek‚Äôs new software brings together 3D modelling, laser scanning and handheld communication devices for effective monitoring of excavation progress by comparing actually surfaces against designs.”

Maptek’s PerfectDig automatically combines mine plans and design information from Maptek Vulcan with laser scans of the working area in an augmented reality app that is obviously of high value to all involved. This deserves a lot more attention.
