3D Vision is a concrete imaging software that allows users to import, process and visualize 3D ground penetrating radar (GPR) projects using a standard PC. Specifically developed to replicate and enhance the 3D Grid Project functionality of the CX Concrete Imaging System, this software offers an easy way to manage 3D Grid Project data collected with the CX system or the XV11 Monitor.

Features within this software allow users to look down 'through' the survey area to identify targets at different depths and running in different directions. A very useful aspect of this software is the ability to enable a 'drawing tool' to highlight targets within the investigated area, which can be marked on the ground surface and approved for excavation.
