Augment Hovermap point cloud scans

Augment your Hovermap point cloud scans with 360-degree panoramic imagery to add extra contextual information and derive new insights. The 360-degree camera attaches directly to the Hovermap unit and is designed to comfortably hold in one hand, enabling easy capture of panoramic images and 3D LiDAR data at the same time. During processing in Aura, the 360 images are automatically registered to the point cloud without the need for calibration, streamlining workflows. The aligned images and LiDAR point cloud data are then ready for export and display in third-party platforms including Pointerra3D, Cintoo Cloud and Bentley iTwin.

Benefit From:

Accelerated workflow

Accelerated workflow with streamlined registration and export of 360 photography that has been captured alongside Hovermap

Realistic context

Adding realistic context to your point clouds

Aid understanding

Bringing your point cloud to life and aiding understanding for non expert stakeholders

Improved workflow

Improved workflow efficiencies by facilitating a seamless handover between the surveyor capturing the data and draftsperson creating the models – without the queries


  • Automated registration – 360 images automatically appear in the correct location on the point cloud ready for visualization
  • No calibration required – Aura automatically selects and applies the correct orientation settings for use with the telescopic mount
  • Image masking – option to mask out the operator using a default mask, or create your own.
  • Supports custom hardware mounts – use the same 360 camera on your own custom mount on other platforms such as a vehicle or drone
  • Orientation override – override the default when the camera is custom-mounted to ensure images are correctly registered during processing
  • Configurable extract frequency – configure how frequently the image is extracted from the 360 video
  • One handed data capture – comfortably hold and operate the combined Hovermap and 360 camera unit with one hand
  • Unobstructed data capture – minimized image obstruction by people and equipment

Where to use 360 image capture
