Using the iSTAR 360 imag­ing sys­tem has been crit­i­cal to pro­vid­ing fore­sight to data man­age­ment con­sid­er­a­tions over the com­plete life­cy­cle of this project. Using such an effi­cient and con­sis­tent method of image doc­u­men­ta­tion, means that we are sure to deliv­er with­in both an accu­rate and com­pet­i­tive cost-struc­ture for our cus­tomer.”

At Form­by Sur­veys, we have been using the iSTAR 360 degree imag­ing for a cou­ple of years to help with max­imis­ing our time when sur­vey­ing a site. Whether we need to sur­vey every room in a hotel, or an archi­tec­tural­ly sig­nif­i­cant site such as One Great George Street; the iSTAR helps reduce our field times and improves the qual­i­ty of prod­uct to our client”

The whole process with iSTAR takes less than a minute per scan to cap­ture a per­fect image,” said Rux­ton. “So we esti­mate that iSTAR is sav­ing us more than 30% in our total scan­ning time.”

The colour out­put is incred­i­ble and can actu­al­ly pro­vide our clients with such con­fi­dence in the accu­ra­cy of their images that they may not even require a con­fir­ma­tion vis­it to the site.”

We have three dif­fer­ent scan­ners each of which is fit­ted with a brack­et on to which we mount the iSTAR and it works well with all of them.”

The HDR qual­i­ty is a pre-req­ui­site for the real estate sec­tor, so it’s amaz­ing to be able to cap­ture such high qual­i­ty images so quick­ly.”

Collision and criminal investigation

This, for me, is ground-break­ing and some­thing we could nev­er have imag­ined would make our crime or acci­dent scene report­ing so detailed”

NCTech makes my job eas­i­er. It also allows inter­ac­tions on site with the device through the Site Sur­vey­or appli­ca­tion which reduces the time need­ed for pre­sen­ta­tion prepa­ra­tion”

iSTAR was very impres­sive. It’s size, ease of use, porta­bil­i­ty and image qual­i­ty make it a wor­thy com­pan­ion for our FARO Focus Laser Scan­ners”

We use the iSTAR every oth­er day — we’ve always got scan­ning jobs on — and it always goes out on them… it’s such a use­ful and quick tool for get­ting a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of what’s there”

Collision investigation

To us iSTAR was a rev­e­la­tion! It has become one of the first bits of kit that comes out of the car and is used by every mem­ber of the team”

Using iSTAR — Extract from In Attendance

Its porta­bil­i­ty is great. We can get it set up in a cou­ple of min­utes and get real time info, rather than wait 15 or 20 min­utes while a laser scan­ner does its work. iSTAR’s almost instant. I can take an image as soon as I get there, then anoth­er every, say, five min­utes, and get a pic­ture of the inci­dent pro­gress­es.”
