Image Master

    Previously PI-3000

    ImageMaster software is available in four editions, IS, Lite, Standard, Pro. This powerful combination of functionality allows you to accomplish everything from Imaging Station wireless control of measurements to 3D module generation using stereo photo pairs. Imaging, scanning and photogrammetry projects come to life in this powerful PC software.

    Four Editions of ImageMaster Software:

    IS - Controls the IS via WLAN connection and makes 3D TINS and photo textured surfaces of IS collected data only. Distance can be measured from points and surfaces.

    LITE - Intended for GPT-7000i packages with Field Orientation software. Easy mode field orientation projects can be modeled. 

    STD - Includes all IS edition features plus additional editing of IS scanned data with full Survey Tools such as volume and cross section calculations. Outside CAD data can be used as well. 

    PRO - Includes all above features plus Topcon's advanced photogrammetry solution previously distributed as PI-3000 Photo Modeler software.  

    Features of Topcon ImageMaster IS Edition:

    This edition compliments the Topcon Imaging Station (IS). The functionality includes WLAN control of to the IS. Measurements can be taken as individual points or grid scan areas defined by user resolution. The advantage to this edition is having a Live Video feed over WLAN to the IS. Controlling the IS with a large color screen from a PC or laptop is revolutionary. An entire survey can be completed from the comfort of your vehicle or remotely via internet connection. 

    The IS edition can collect points and point cloud points from the IS and prepare TINs with photo texturing. Points and surfaces can be used to measure distances and be exported to the Standard edition or DXF format for further analysis.

    Features of Topcon ImageMaster LITE Edition:

    This edition imports and processes Field Orientation files from the GPT-7000i series total station. Projects collected with easy mode can be processed in this powerful combination of surfacing and photogrammetry. The advanced functions of Topcon's Photogrammetry solution is only available in the PRO edition.

    GPT-7000i Series Imaging Total Station – Capture Reality with Revolutionary Technology

    Topcon revolutionizes surveying with another World's First Technology. Capture jobsite images with the built-in digital camera.

     The GPT-7000i provides:

    • The best performance
    • Efficient surveying
    • Long range EDM
    • TFT color graphic display
    • New Windows® CE technology
    • Add information to the image

    Features of Topcon ImageMaster Standard Edition:

    This edition offers full functionality of surveying tools such as polyline creation, contouring, cross sections, TIN generation and editing. Additional functions such as area and volume calculations, ortho-image, and field scan  file processing make this module a powerful addition to an Imaging Station system. The only functionality not included in thie edition is that of stereo pair photogrammetry.

    Features of Topcon ImageMaster PRO Edition:

    Topcon ImageMaster PRO software has revolutionized capturing images in the field, whether used with an off-the-shelf digital camera, or in conjunction with the world's first imaging total stations GPT-7000i, or the world's only long range reflectorless, imaging, scanning and robotic total station. 


    Standard Camera Support

    Use a digital camera to produce 3D models using the principles of photogrammetry. All you need are two pictures taken from two locations that overlap on the area you want to measure. There's no need to use a fixed base, or other set up conditions, for most applications.

    Fast Image Adjustment with GPT-7000i Orientation File

    ImageMaster PRO software combines an easy to use interface and advanced mathematical processing, to allow for quick and accurate modeling. Accurate 3D models are produced in the shortest time possible, with minimum preparation or special knowledge.

    Accurate ImageMaster PRO software is professional grade photogrammetry software. The power of ImageMaster PRO software can produce models with sub-centimeter accuracies.
