When we launched Site Scan just over a year ago, we set out on a clear mission to be the leading drone data platform for AEC professionals across the world. A year in, it’s been remarkable to see how our customers—including established firms like PCL Construction, Kimley-Horn, and McKim & Creed—have made use of Site Scan on their jobsites and pioneered brand new ways to put drone data to work. For starters: they’ve used it to design new bridges, survey inaccessible terrain, build artificial lagoons, QA the concrete construction process, and much, much more.

Site Scan Manager, our web application, has played a crucial part in these projects. We’ve been working on making the platform even more powerful, and today we’re excited to mark another step in that journey: meet Site Scan Manager 3.0, the best Site Scan yet.

Take a tour and see what’s new:

Simple, intuitive interface

We’ve re-designed the interface to make Manager simpler and easier to use, with improved workflows for accessing your project and job lists, toolbar, and sidebar. Now, it’s easier than ever to manage your jobs, add annotations, and more. Check out this quick overview to see what’s possible:

Monitor site progress over time

Need to go back in time? No problem. Now, you can easily navigate to any job and watch as the orthomosaic transitions seamlessly from date to another. From there, it’s just a click to add CAD overlays, zoom in on details, and more.

Volume measurements

Measuring stockpiles by foot can be time-consuming, dangerous, and costly. Now, you can fly a drone over your aggregates in minutes, and then measure volumes directly within Site Scan Manager. Just tap around your area of interest, and Manager will automatically calculate volumes in cubic meters and cubic yards using our lowest point method. It’s a fast, accurate way to manage your resources, making earthworks projects simpler than ever before.

PDF Export

Need to quickly share your orthomosaic, overlay, or measurements? Use the new PDF export feature to download the information you need, and then easily send it to send to your team and other stakeholders.

But that’s not all…

There’s plenty more features in the new Manager: we’ve added guided workflows, for example, which are an educational resource that help you get the most out of the product. Later this week, we’ll be sharing another big announcement about our latest improvements—want to stay in the loop? Follow us on Twitter and keep an eye out for our next release!
