Both River Bend Nuclear Station and MillStone Power Station report improved productivity and reduced need for walkdowns through their iPanoMapTM laser scan database. Using the Android app on a 10″ tablet, these facilities can access 3D scans quickly and conveniently, and can use the devices to annotate scans with site-specific photos, videos, and component labeling information. These scan databases include views with merged 3D models and have been used for interference verification.
To date, CSA has created tablet-based iPanoMapTM versions for most of their current PC-based PanoMap® plant models. These portable versions may include projects with thousands of scans and have been used extensively for reviews and walkdowns.
iPanoMapTM can be customized; also, scans from other sources can be converted into iPanoMapTM .
