IKM used the point cloud data to accurately model the tank in 3D. Integrating the floor scans, roof scans and side wall scans allowed us to use as-built drawings to compare any life-cycle deformations or integrity issues.
A full 3D model was created and utilised for a number of purposes:
- Training -to illustrate to people what to look for when inspecting a storage tank
- VR – an immersive application was built to allow users to virtually interrogate the data without having to be onsite
- Collaboration – teams could then spend time looking at the defects and collaborate on the best approach to creating a cost effective solution
