Enable Geocoordinates for Captures, Levels, and BIM

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Once you have enabled geocoordinates for a project, you can then georeference specific locations with individual files as well:

  • Capture - geolocate an area.
  • Level - geolocate reference points on a map or reference plan.
  • BIM - use a BIM survey point to align different construction trades when using shared coordinates.

To add georeferences, use the relevant editor:


Capture Editor

Use the Capture Editor to geolocate areas with panos, point clouds, or mesh files:

  1. Go to your project in CupixWorks Project Center.
  2. Click on  Captures.
  3. Double-click on the Capture Date.
  4. Double-click on the specific Area.
  5. If not already on, click on the Info about the selected item icon  .

  9. Once the reference point has been placed, toggle Use Geolocation on. 


BIM Editor

A georeferenced BIM model has a single survey point. You can use the BIM Editor to align by shared coordinates:

  1. Go to your project in CupixWorks Project Center.
  2. Click on  BIM.
  3. Double-click on the BIM file.
