AGTEK recently released SmartPlan. SmartPlan geo-references plan sheets, cut/fill maps and quantity reports using the GPS positioning power of your smartphone or tablet. Locate grading limits, pad corners, daylight lines or any other plan features.
Display paving areas and pipe runs. Review the paving and trench material quantities on site.
Record your tracks to mark areas of interest or mark haul paths. Document the site with geo-referenced, time stamped photos. Send the tracks and photos back to the office by way of the Cloud. SmartPlan works with Android phones and tablets, and with IPhones in combination with Android tablets.
The current versions of Earthwork 4D products (available here) include enhancements to the KMZ file export. You may choose to display the KMZ File Export window. This window allows you to turn layers on or off. You have the option to save not only the current plan sheet, but all the plan sheet images in one file. Output the volumes and balance reports. Highway files have the option to choose the desired alignment and mass diagram. You may change the resolution of the cut/fill color map, depending on the size of the project. Upload the files to AGTEK Access for use with SmartPlan. Click here to view a short video on all the different options
Latest versions of Materials 4D, Underground 4D and Trackwork 4D have similar KMZ file export options.
