GOAL: carry out the verification of a buried network, whatever its nature, as soon as it is put in place.

Survey with RezoCassini of a trench

Verification with RezoCassini of a sanitation network equipment

HOW: by video capture of the trench and the networks it contains

GOAL: obtain a colorized, georeferenced 3D point cloud with centimetric precision. establish the survey plan from this cloud of points


  • Using a GoPro, a smartphone or any other video sensor, the operator films the trench by moving along it, without additional equipment.
  • The RezoCassini application, available on GooglePlay, is specially designed for assistance and the production of videos by smartphone.
  • Once produced, the video is transferred to GeoCassini, and the transformation of the video into colorized 3D point clouds is triggered.
  • A few minutes later (5 minutes on average), the point cloud is available to be georeferenced. Prior to the treatment, the user can also request an orthophoto of the raised area.
  • The user georeferences the point cloud verification in two ways

• either from calibration points taken in the field (GPS), in the absence of a digital twin of 3D point clouds
• or by cloud/cloud calibration from existing point clouds in the work area

  • Once the georeferencing has been carried out, a table of deviations from the calibration points makes it possible to assess the precision of the georeferencing. The operation can be repeated to achieve the desired precision (centimeter).
  • The georeferencing validated, the file is saved in the DataBase and the project is updated automatically.
  • Bureau Veritas has certified the RezoCassini process according to standard NF S 70 003-3.

The “cloud/cloud” open trench survey using GeoCassini is 5 times more accurate than GPS methods.

  • With GeoCassini, the cloud/cloud methodology is much more efficient:

• no need for specific equipment (GPS)
• no need for a topographer’s intervention schedule, the video is produced by the site staff
• immediate filling of the trench after laying the network and taking the video
• no need to maintain the safety of the trench
• occupation of the public domain minimized
• automated and fast processing because on the cloud
• time saving in stocktaking procedures
• much better accuracy than current processes
• certified accuracy

  • The cloud/cloud calibration is based on the exploitation
    of the digital twin in 3D point cloud of the study area

Survey of network geodetection carried out at Gopro

• il est réalisé avant la phase travaux
• idéalement lors de l’établissement du plan topographique nécessaire pour l’étude du projet de travaux.
• il peut également être réalisé avec une Gopro en utilisant l’application RezoCassini.
• e-Cassini propose plusieurs solutions pour disposer de
jumeaux numériques de territoire :

Survey of a sewage connection


  • The georeferenced colorized 3D point cloud can be directly used in GeoCassini to draw the pipe survey plan. The plan can be drawn in 3D or 2D (orthophoto)

• the result can then be exported in the main usual exchange formats
• the result can also be modeled in 3D under GeoCassini
• it is also possible to complete the drawing by providing information on the network parts installed, which can also be exported.

Example of vectorization of a drinking water pipeline with GeoCassini

Visualization in IFC of the pipeline on the point cloud

  • Georeferenced colorized 3D point cloud automatically updates territory digital twin

• it is a true 3D centimetric cartography of the underground
networks which is thus updated
• this mapping represents a real challenge for improving DT/DICT procedures

  • The entire process facilitates and simplifies subsequent interventions on the network

• The location of the networks is very precise and access to their positioning is possible through the e-Cassini marketplace.

• GeoCassini is interconnected with the augmented reality software vGis, which makes it possible to precisely identify the presence of underground networks in a study area.
