Viewport3 Launches Remote 3D Scanning Service

first_imgAberdeen-based Viewport3 is set to roll out a new remote data capture service for the energy sector, giving it the capability to collect and process 3D data from offshore via remote working arrangements.The technique involves providing divers and ROV personnel with instructions for the task along with remote support, allowing them to collect the data and submit to Viewport3 for processing and analysis.Over the course of the development phase, Viewport3 has  refined the service in order to ensure customers are capable of retrieving the correct data.Co-director of Viewport3, Richard Drennan, explained: “Each project we embark on is the result of a 2-way conversation with our customers – they need answers to a specific question, which we can provide by scanning the relevant object, and processing the data into a 3D model and typically also a detailed but simple dimensional report. This remote service is no different. While it isn’t appropriate in every single set of circumstances, or for all accuracy requirements, there are many instances where we determine that the best camera for an urgent 3D scanning task, is the one you have available to you at the time.“Remote capture adds value across the board. We are in the unique position of being able to use cameras that are currently fitted to the ROV, or which divers have otherwise readily available, meaning we can get to work very quickly. The volume and quality of the information we can retrieve remotely can save our customers multiple offshore campaign days and streamline future inspection tasks.”Co-director, Chris Harvey added: “Oilfield and marine operators are in possession of a valuable untapped resource in their back-catalogue of legacy digital video and stills. Once we have digitally processed these, our customers can review the information in 3D, and make business critical decisions about asset integrity, without the need for an offshore campaign. This is advantageous at the best of times, but particularly so during this period of uncertainly and restriction of movement.“There have been instances where we’ve answered every one of the client’s questions, based on video taken years ago. We work hard to ensure that complex data-sets and analysis results are simple to understand and aid inclusive project discussions at all levels. All of our project outputs are customer-defined and issued in a manner that answers the questions clearly and promotes increased understanding of technical challenges.”last_img read more

Report Reply 0 replies · active 379 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Geo · 379 weeks ago Good grief, someone please educate these folks on what they are seeing. This is a swarm of bees, this is how they divide and start a new hive. The old queen will leave the old hive and take about half of the worker bees with her. The swarm landed on the fence and sent out scout bees to look for a new home. The old hive will raise a new queen and continue on. If you were to look around the park area more than likely they would find a bee tree. Report Reply 0 replies · active 379 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Crystal Dawson, a Wellington Recreation Commission employee, came back to work during her lunch hour Wednesday afternoon only to get the scare of her life.She parked the car on the south side of the WRC parking lot, got out, and saw this dark big lump of on the short metal parking lot fence.Dawson thought that was strange and went closer to look. What she discovered made her jump and run. It was… bees!For some reason, the fence had some sugar-water type substance and some worker bees flying around looking for a location for a new nest discovered it. They then got the queen bee and she and her swarm took to the sugar substance medal parking lot bar as the new colony home.Not knowing what to do Dawson called a bee removal company in Wichita. But they were charging too much.Dawson then remembered her neighbor Lonnie Hays is a bee enthusiast.So he was called in to remove the beehive.Hays said bee colonies are established when a mated queen and a larger contingent of worker bees break away from the home colony during the spring after a long hard winter huddled together.This group obviously moved en masse to a nest site which they determined to be the medal WRC parking lot bar. Once the swarm arrived, they were in the process of building a nest before Hays came and removed it to take it to his bee hive at his home.“The scary thing is that’s my neighbor,” Dawson said. “So I might be seeing those bees again.”WRC sports director Tanner Ford said he has a bee phobia. He wasn’t around for the official bee removal process.last_img read more

It was the last action of the half and referee Brian Nsubuga blew for the mandatory rest.In an attempt to chase the game, James Odoch introduced forward Misiige Charles for midfielder Kiggundu Derrick at the start of the second half.After a slow start to the second half, Muhammad Rashid was booked for time wasting on 53 minutes and straight after, Livingstone Mbabazi brought on team captain Kutego Alishe in place of Umari Mbusa to try and see out the 1-0 lead.As Mbarara attempted to slow down the game, Mucureezi was also booked by Nsubuga for time wasting.Odit had a chance to make it 2-0 on 64 minutes but could only head wide Jasper Ahebwa’s inch perfect cross while unmarked in the area.Ten minutes later, substitute Kiggundu made Odit pay for his missed chance as he connected brilliantly with Steven Kabuye’s cross to tap in past Kimera for 1-1.On 78 minutes, Karim Ndugwa raced through on Nyamityobora’s goal but decided to play in Mucureezi while one on one with Jomi and somehow the home side managed to clear their lines.As Mbarara upped it, Alishe blasted over from close range after he was teed up by Odit with nine minutes to play.With the game headed for a draw, Nyamityobora caught Livingstone Mbabazi’s side on the break and Akandwanaho found himself in acres of space, he unleashed a fierce drive into the top right corner to put the home side 2-1 up on 89 minutes.Despite a late surge by Mbarara to score an equalizer, Nyamityobora held on to a first victory of the season.The three points lift Nyamityobora off the bottom into 14th place while Mbarara slip to 7th on the log with six points from four games.The other results from Wednesday’s games:-SC Villa 1-3 Vipers SC-Maroons FC 1-1 URA FC-Ndejje University FC 1-2 Police FCComments last_img read more


Boris U-turn on the Irish border as UK moves closer to NI-only backstop

first_imgThe UK is moving closer to the objectives of the original Northern Ireland-only backstop, it has emerged. According to RTE, the EU now believes London is prepared to accept a simple majority that would register consent for Northern Ireland to opt-out of the new arrangements enshrined in a revised Withdrawal Agreement.It’s unclear if this would be a majority vote via the Stormont Assembly or even through a referendum. The original backstop commits the UK and EU to protecting the all-Ireland economy, avoiding a hard border and related checks and controls, preserving North-South cooperation, and protecting the EU’s single market.It foresaw Northern Ireland remaining part of the EU’s customs union if another solution to avoiding a hard border could not be found.This morning EU member states gave the green light for negotiations between the UK and European Commission to intensify.The decision followed a briefing of EU27 ambassadors by Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator. “The EU and the UK have agreed to intensify discussions over the coming days,” the European Commission said.“The Commission will take stock with the European Parliament and the Member States again on Monday in view of preparing the General Affairs Council (Article 50) on Tuesday morning.”The General Affairs Council is a meeting of EU member state ministers in Luxembourg to draw up the agenda for the European Council summit on Thursday and Friday.Mr Barnier had earlier met the Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay, who brought fresh proposals in a bid to break the deadlock.Today’s developments followed yesterday’s meeting in Cheshire between the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Boris Johnson.
