Specific feedback requests

The following are the features that we would like to specifically receive feedback on.

Feedback request: Person Blurring detection issues

When reviewing your scanned images, if you notice that some areas are blurred when there are no people in the image or people are not blurred when they should be, NavVis would like to hear from you to use your images to improve the feature. NavVis would like the following information:

  • Camera images from the recorded (unprocessed data), from the NavVis VLX SSD.

  • Screenshots of the matching panoramas that have incorrect blurring.

Scope

This section describes the steps for retrieving data (cam files) that we can use for further developing and improving the person blurring algorithm together with a proposed workaround for the issue.

Note: Your data will be shared with a third party software company, so by following these steps you agree to these terms.

Data retrieval procedure

To retrieve the cam files required, perform the following steps in the order shown:

  1. Navigate to the IVION panorama location that contains the blurring error.

    Data_retrieval2
  2. Press Ctrl+Shift+C on the keyboard while viewing the NavVis IVION panorama in Google Chrome browser (other browsers have similar functionality). The "developer's console" will pop up on the left side, as shown here.

    Data_retrieval3
  3. Click the Network tab and the following screen is displayed.

    Data_retrieval4
  4. Press Ctrl+R on the keyboard to reload the entries. After a few seconds, the screen will display a list of network requests.

    Data_retrieval5
  5. Click on the entry XXXXX-pano-tex-.... located at the end of the list.

  6. Click on the Headers tab.

  7. Note the dataset ID where this panoramic image comes from and its corresponding number, you will need this later.

    Data_retrieval6
  8. The XXXXX will be the number of the panorama captured during the scan. In the example above, this is 00018 and the dataset ID is 2023-01-03_09.06.00.

  9. Connect the SSD of your device to a computer.

  10. Open the SSD of your mapping device under /datasets_rec/<dataset_ID_from_above>/cam/ folder.

  11. Upload the XXXXX-cam0, XXXXX-cam1, XXXXX-cam2 and XXXXX-cam3 files (that correspond to the dataset IDs you noted in step 7) to an online data sharing platform of your choice and share with the support team over support@navvis.com or contact us at the same email address.

Workaround

You can hide these panorama locations that contain blurring issues by right clicking on the image -> Hide current location.
