High-Resolution Object Documentation and Visualization

Neptune Fountain - Schloß Schönbrunn
Cultural Heritage Documentation

The Neptune Fountain, located in the park of Schloß Schönbrunn, was measured using terrestrial laser scanning and images for documentation and visualization purposes. 230 scans with 20 mio points each were taken. The resulting documentation model consists of 100 mio triangles, representing the original object with an accuracy better than 5 mm.

Prehistoric Life App of Austrian Mint AG
Augmented Reality App for Apple and Android Tablets

The App of the Austrian Mint was especially developed for the new Mint Series "Prehistoric Life". The series focuses on the motives oft he prehistoric times of Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, Tertiary and Quarternary. Fossils, animals and living environments of the particular time are shown on each coin. The coins’ animals are the highlights of the app. The animal’s 3D models are replicated realistically. The user can explore them, get to know them and last but not least play with them. After touching the animal it roars. Additionally, the user can switch to skeleton mode. The educational background is another important aspect: the app offers detailed information about the animal, its living environment as well as the period. Moreover you find information about the archeological site and the geology. The app starts with the first dinosaur "Nothosaur". The other prehistorical animals will follow with each coin release. The user unlocks the new time via updating the app. Motivs in the serie’s documents (e.g. certificate, brochure, mini-booklets, print-ad) will trigger the app. One will also be available online on www.muenzeoesterreich.at/urzeit.

Max Weiler - Die Natur der Malerei
iPhone App / Multimedia DVD

The exhibition in the Essl Museum, Klosterneuburg/Wien, concentrated on Max Weiler's works in the 1960th. This period represents a culmination as well as a turning point in the more then 70 years of the artist's creative work. Within the presented cycle “Like a Landscape” (Wie eine Landschaft), 1961-1967, he overcomes the abstraction, which he formerly developed to a personal culmination by integrating a technique of procedural painting into his work. Experience paintings, drawings, “Probierblätter”, and “Flügelbilder” as shown in the exhibition. A comprehensive collection of topics, citations, and a biography give an additional insight into the life and work of this exceptional artist.

Topographic Data Processing

Coastal Line Detection
ALS Data Processing

Based on Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS) point clouds, the coastal line (Wasser-Land-Grenze - WLG) was determined semi-automatically. The resulting polyine may be used for splitting point at the water surface from terrain points. This task is of special importance at tidelands.

Building Detection for ÖBB
ALS Data Processing

Based on Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS) point clouds, Digital Surface Models (DSM) and Digital Terrain Models (DTM), outlines and eave heights of buildings were determined for more than 1.000 km2 along the main railway corridors using the BuildingDetector. The data is used to generate a noise catastre.
