Kaarta Contour enables 3D modeling from input to output in real time, offering a significant speed advantage over terrestrial laser scanners along with the flexibility to capture tight and complex spaces. Kaarta’s advances in localization and real-time and on-board processing rapidly and accurately turn the captured data into information that can be used to speed the modeling workflow.


Lightweight and batterypowered, Contour is hand carried through an environment as it scans to generate a 3D map without any additional infrastructure. A typical 10,000 sq m (110,000 sq ft) space can be scanned in about 2.5 hours. Freed from a fixed position tripod, Contour can capture tight and complex spaces never before possible.


Contour’s onboard touchscreen enhances ease and usability. The screen displays the model as it’s being built to provide immediate knowledge of the environment. The ability to pause while scanning or set key poses and resume from those poses gives the user maximum control during the capture process, especially useful when there is limited time or access to a site.



Confidence Metrics provide immediate feedback on the quality of scans by signaling whether new scan data is registered properly in the existing map, estimating the likelihood of errors and allowing the user to increase the level of confidence by adjusting data collection techniques or adjusting parameters. Confidence levels can be set in rough, medium and high definition modes (and can be changed on the fly) to adapt to the desired speed and conditions of capture and the required output. New features including HD Camera and Feature Tracking View help the user ensure the fidelity of the data for the most efficient and accurate BIM modeling outcome.
