Introduction of OKM Visualizer 3D Studio:
This scan example takes you to a royal tomb in Egypt:
3D Ground Scan
Visualizer 3D Studio offers treasure hunters, archaeologists and professional users in industry the possibility to locate and visualize hidden objects in the underground even before excavation. By using the innovative analysis software, the position, size and depth of the detected object can be determined more precisely after the measurement with the OKM detector.
The innovative visualization software offers users a wide range of options, both in processing and in displaying and evaluating the scan data:
Transfer data from the OKM detector or ground scanner via USB cable or Bluetooth and then edit it in the software. Selected detectors (Rover UC, eXp 6000) create the scan file already in .v3d format during the measurement. This can be opened directly with the software.

In addition to the measured values, basic data such as date, length and width of the measurement field and (if activated) the associated GPS position are saved for each measurement. This information can be supplemented in the software with further information on the measurement or with information on special measuring field properties.
The completed scan graphic can be positioned, enlarged and rotated according to individual requirements. Thus, on the one hand a top view is possible (2D), on the other hand three-dimensional views are also possible by rotating. For easy handling, you will find preset standard views to click on in the left toolbar.
Thanks to preset viewports, the scan image can be divided among several windows. This means that several perspectives can be viewed at the same time. In order to focus on a specific area, different windows in different sizes can be selected. Alternatively, the display area can be limited to a single window.
Using the four predefined modifiers (interpolation, subdivision, signal correction, rotation correction), the measured values are automatically corrected, extended by additional measuring points and recalculated in order to optimize the display and facilitate the search for potential find objects within the measured data.
For different ambient light conditions, the software offers four user interface designs to choose from. Select the one that suits your taste!
With 12 OKM standard soil types and 12 additional USDA soil types, the new Visualizer 3D Studio software offers extended functionality: By selecting the appropriate soil type, the calculation of the depth values is adjusted according to the stored soil properties such as dielectric constant, relative permeability, homogeneity, mineralization and moisture. The selection of the correct soil type is essential, as the calculation of the measurement depth is significantly influenced by it. For a better visual evaluation the deposited soil textures can be mapped.
To select individual scan values, not only the arrow keys but now also the mouse can be used. With this function, details of the selected measured value can be viewed more easily. Furthermore, a bookmark can be set on this point that can be provided with additional information.
Bookmarks can be used to highlight areas of interest and potential findings. A pin on the selected measurement marks a point for which further details can be noted. Optionally, a rectangle or circle can be placed around the point to highlight an entire area.
Until now, the scan image was only available to be printed directly or exported as an image. This function has been adopted for the Standard Edition and even extended for the Professional Edition: With the PRO version, you can have your scan data automatically compiled. Decide for yourself whether with or without image, scan information, details on soil types and/or set bookmarks.
When using the Visualizer 3D Studio software on a tablet or laptop with a smaller screen, it is recommended to activate the tablet mode. This will optimize the display of the import process and improve its visibility.
The OKM software has continued to advance along with the detectors and the requirements of the users. Thus, numerous useful functionalities have been added to facilitate the use of the software and to make the evaluation of the scan data more efficient.
New features include:
Discover more advantages of the new analysis software and its editions Standard and Professional!
Easy-to-understand icons and direct tooltips enable intuitive operation. Sample scans available in the program show users which graphic details may indicate potential targets such as buried treasure chests and artifacts, underground tunnels, burial chambers and underground pipelines.
In addition, users are supported by an interactive help system. This and the online help are currently under construction in English.
The help will be available in further languages soon:
The scan analysis software Visualizer 3D Studio has been especially designed for OKM metal detectors and ground scanners.
Moreover, the various editions of the ground scan analysis software - Visualizer 3D Standard and Professional - are also compatible with most previous detectors.
In addition, all saved scan files in .v3d format such as 3D Ground Scan and Mineral Scan, which were performed with older OKM ground scanners and metal detectors, can also be opened in the new Visualizer 3D Studio software. This allows to view, edit and analyze the scan data with the new software, which offers new functions and tools.
By using bookmarks, potential finds can be highlighted and labeled directly in the program. This saves time-consuming processing of scan images in additional programs.
The bookmarks can be saved with the scan file and thus also sent to external viewers (Visualizer 3D Studio software required). The set bookmarks can also be viewed in the Standard Edition. Setting and editing bookmarks is only possible in the Professional Edition.
For faster exchange with colleagues and clients, the scan data can be organized in a PDF report. When exporting, you can individually include or exclude scan image (current screen view), scan information, soil type information and set bookmarks.
For efficient use of the software, OKM relies on interactive help: Depending on the function, appropriate notes are displayed when help is activated. Additionally, tooltips as well as shortcuts in the status bar (lower window border) help with the usage. With the online help - the so-called documentation - you are always up to date. You can browse through it without any software update; all you need is an Internet connection.
If you cannot find answers to your questions in the help/documentation, software tutorial videos provide further support. Examples are used here to show the software functions in detail.
