Purpose and goal
The aim was to develop the methodology for geophysical measurements in urban environments, and to simplify the entire chain of processing, modelling and visualizing the final result. The goal was to develop an easy-to-use yet powerful system that streamlines the steps from planning, data collection, post-processing to visualization of the end result. Overall, we consider the project to be successful, where we managed to improve what before was a diverse and complicated process to something much easier and faster.
Expected results and effects
The system consists of the Terrameter LS 2 measuring instrument, Workbench processing software, and data handling and visualization tools GeoCloud and GeoScene 3D. The system is based on existing products that have been developed and adapted for the purpose of the project. Great emphasis has been placed on automating difficult steps and reducing demanding interaction with the user. The result is a solution that is much easier to use for a non-expert, which can lead to increased use of the method.
Planned approach and implementation
Guideline Geo has developed the Terrameter LS 2. Aarhus University has further developed Workbench. I-GIS has further developed GeoCloud and GeoScene 3D. Lunds University has tested the individual products and the integration between them, as well as worked with optimization of the measurement method. The work has been done separately for each product, but close cooperation has also been required for integration between the different stages. Overall, the partnership has worked very well and there is interest in future joint projects.
