We added the
option to take snapshots of the 3D model, exactly as viewed in the browser.
Instead of using screenshots of your browser window or standard snipping tools,
Map Snapshot will eliminate any functions displays or open cards and tables on
the view. You get a clean image of the model, which you can download in a PDF
report, indicating the project name, instance date, and reporting date.
helps you download views of the model for later review, sharing with
stakeholders who do not have access to the DatuBIM platform, or documenting
Model Reprocessing &
Editing Geo-Referencing MethodDatuBIM users
are now able to reprocess drone imagery and data to improve model
accuracy. You can reprocess your model
without the need to open a new site and re-upload images.
you can now edit the Geo-Referencing method in the Upload a Flight wizard.
(You can find the
Geo-Referencing in Step 2 of the wizard, Flight Info & Preferences).
this will allow you to switch from Automodels (based exclusively on RTK or
drone GPS data) to geo-referencing your model using ground control points
(GCPs) for superior accuracy.
reprocessed a model using GCPs, you will also be able to leverage DatuBIM's
unique and time-saving Auto Geo-referencing capabilities during the creation of
future models of your site.
especially when reprocessing older models, you can take advantage of the full
power and recent improvements of DatuBIM, such as:
- Enhanced pre-processing methods
- Quality checks of imagery
- Use of checkpoints
- Accuracy reports
- Upgrades to our photogrammetry engine
Reprocessing gives DatuBIM users the highest flexibility and full control over
model accuracy. Besides changing to the more accurate GCP geo-referencing
method, you can use this new feature to:
- Introduce a new, more accurate set of GCPs.

drone GPS, Based on drone RTK, or Auto Geo-referencing.

serves you throughout the entire project life cycle. With Model Reprocessing,
you can align the model accuracy to your specific needs as they might change
throughout the project. If you start using DatuBIM with a Ground-Zero model for
basic topographic information supporting your planning teams or documenting
landscape restoration aspects, models based on drone GPS or RTK data might be
sufficient. With the start of the construction, you can switch to
geo-referencing with GCPs for the highest accuracy of the model and the
resulting engineering reports and analytics.
Finally, if you become aware that the set of GCPs was measured incorrectly
and cannot be replaced by a new, accurate set, you can use Model Reprocessing
to exclude the GPCs from the model generation. You do that by switching
Geo-referencing to Automodel (drone GPS or RTK data).
View Only User Permission
We added a new View Only to the user permissions on DatuBIM.
View Only users can view 3D models and measurements of all the sites they
are affiliated with.
View Only users cannot create, edit or delete data. They also cannot
make any downloads.
Besides this, View Only user cannot:
With this new user permission, you gain higher flexibility in controlling
and sharing your data. The View Only user permission is also a practical option
for allowing new users to get familiar with the system without jeopardizing your

New Base Surface Options for Volume Calculations
We added two enhancements for using base surfaces. You can now calculate
volumes and analyze volume changes (delta volume) with higher precision and as required
by the situation at your site.
Elevation base surface for both volumes and delta volumes. This base
surface takes the minimal elevation in the volume polygon and calculates the
volume between a plane with that elevation and the model(s). This new feature
is essential when calculating the volume of a pile adjoining others or located
b. We now enabled the Interpolated base surface
for delta volumes, which was previously available
only for volume calculations.
Minor Fixes and Improvements
We made minor UI improvements, fixed bugs, and resolved usability issues.
