Verified View Montage Photographs and Surveying Coordinates.

This process can also be described as:

  • Accurate Visual Representations (AVR)
  • Accurate View Representations (AVR)
  • Verified Images
  • Verified View Montages (VVM)

Cadmap Studio Limited offer a unique 3D Visualisation, Verified View Montage, Photography and Surveying service all under one roof, primarily for Architects, Designers and Developers. Trained staff carry out the photography and surveying at the same time using specially engineered surveying equipment, the camera is perfectly sycrynised with the total station for alignment with the survey nail, once the photograph is captured, we simply remove the camera and clamp on the total Station and survey the detail required. Once all the survey information and photographs are captured, this information is processed and GPS transformed to OSGB world coordinates. The 3D Visualiser operates 3DS MAX to 'camera match' all of the information and render the model within 3DS MAX, this produces the most accurate representation of the new build which is created and blended within the photograph using rendering techniques. See below for an example before and after shot.

Please contact us for more information on 020 81111 220 or



Stage One

Locate the View position and establish camera and survey point with Survey Nail or Wooden Peg.

Stage Two

Set up Surveying tripod, level and align the position over the Survey nail using the optical plummet device on the carrier, this is calibrated for the camera as well as the total station.

Stage Three

Mount Camera onto the specially engineered Surveying Tripod, Tribrach and Carrier. Take High resolution photographs of the view in question using the Cannon 5D Mk ii.

Stage Four

Remove the Camera and mount Leica Total Station straight onto the Tribrach, check the laser plummit for alignment

Stage Five

Survey 15 to 20 random points on fixed details. Survey Fore, Mid and background coordinated survey points.

Stage Six

Coordinate the Camera / Survey Location using Leica GPS technology to give accurate OS GPS Coordinates.

Stage Seven

Export 3D XYZ file into an Excel spreadsheet showing descriptions of the points surveyed.

Stage Eight

Annotate Points numbers onto the photograph which relates to the Excel Spreadsheet giving a clear indication of which point has what coordinates.
