Veta 6 Released: Efficient, Comprehensive, and User-Friendly Intelligent Construction Data Analysis
Veta, developed by The Transtec Group, is a free map-based intelligent construction data management software tool that enables contractors and highway agencies to analyze and report data collected from intelligent compaction (IC) rollers and paver‐mounted thermal profilers (PMTP)/infrared (IR) scanners or cameras.
Veta 6 is the latest software release and features a host of improvements, allowing a more comprehensive viewing and analysis for intelligent construction data. Veta 6 enhances usability and expands upon features included with previous versions.
Starting with Veta 6, IC and PMTP data can be imported into one Veta project file. This ability allows for more efficient data viewing, analysis, and reporting. Users will no longer need to switch back and forth between separate Veta files, producing a more streamlined experience.
The new split screen map options allow users to view up to four types of data simultaneously, including combinations of IC and PMTP data. With this feature, users can easily spot relationships and trends between data sets. The intuitive interface dramatically increases efficiency by minimizing time spent hunting for correlating data among different files.
Veta 6 includes more direct download support from vendor cloud platforms such as MOBA, TOPCON, Trimble, and Wirtgen/Vögele. Users of these platforms can download data from the cloud directly into Veta 6 and get to work immediately. Users will no longer encounter data import compatibility issues. Direct download features also enhance data security to prevent data from being tampered with.
The Veta 6 updates also feature an improved legend management system, allowing users to customize and store any legend with project specific properties and easily import saved legends into future projects, saving time and resources. This innovation sets a precedent for all future legend systems implemented within geospatial information software.
Reports now include “impacts per foot” as a new parameter. This metric is critical for ensuring optimum efforts for asphalt compaction.
The spot test screen in Veta 6 now allows for cut-and-pasting of spot tests for any roller pass. A user can include spot test data from nuclear density gauges on specific roller passes and core data on the final lift in one file and cut-and-paste them into Veta all at once. The ability to utilize spot tests and specific passes will improve overall data analysis efficiency as well as shorten the time it takes to identify any discrepancies in data gathering.
Finally, Veta 6 features high-quality map backgrounds coupled with superior zoom options. Flying blind is never fun! The new high-quality map feature and the new overview “mini-map” will improve the user’s overall experience with Veta 6.
Veta is developed with funding and support from the FHWA, Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), Transtec, and The Transportation Pooled Fund (TPF) study, “TPF-5(334) Enhancement to the Intelligent Construction Data Management System (Veta) and Implementation”. Veta is required in FHWA and AASHTO PP80, PP81, and MP39 specifications and is increasingly adopted by state highway agencies around the world.
