Profile measurement data is stored in a Microsoft Access database.

  • well-supported industry-standard DBMS
  • fast data access for queries and reports
  • 'open' database. Data can be exported to spreadsheets and other applications for further analysis.


A range of data processing features supports accurate identification and measurement of track measurement data.

  • imports rail profile data from Laserail (ImageMap) and ORIAN (KLD Labs) optical measurement systems

  • imports track geometry, GRMS and rail flaw data from a wide variety of sources

  • automatic rail weight recognition 

  • automatic rail wear classification using user-defined limits. Complex non-linear criteria can be specified in the Rangecam macro language

  • optional thinning to reduce storage requirements

  • a variety of options to model and measure rail to your requirements: best fit, one-side alignment, head-only modelling, error tolerances, flyer removal, user-defined gauge point, gauge face angle region-of-interest, etc. Options can be saved and restored for special needs.


Data editing features are used to ensure the data quality required to generate trustworthy information.

  • manual rail identification over-ride

  • mouse selection of profile group for bulk operations

  • visual drag-and-drop interface for correcting milepost errors 

  • optional re-calculation of measurements and classifications when criteria change

  • table maintenance forms for adding, updating and deleting database records

  • ability to join and split data collection runs

It contains the most widely used reports and charts, as well as a tool for analyzing wear trends.


Industrial Metrics Inc. - Products - track analyst

Rangecam Track Analyst is a full-featured analysis and reporting software package for rail and track measurement data. Thresholds are used in strip chart colour coding, in calculating GRMS exceptions, and in the Threshold Report. Wear measurements, percent head loss, cant, gauge face angle, track gauge, rail type, wear classification. A weak tie condition on the 4.1 degree R curve shows projected loaded gauge past the condemning limit.


Industrial Metrics Inc. - Products - track view

Rangecam Track View provides viewing and reporting of track condition data, including geometry, GRMS, rail wear and profile. Track View includes geometry and rail wear queries, strip charts and wear trend charts, and a selection of tabular reports. Wear measurements, percent head loss, cant, gauge face angle, track gauge, rail type, wear classification. Exceptions can be found by database queries, or can be imported from external files.

In this case, users connect over the internet or a corporate intranet, and no application software is needed on client computers. Comparison of rail wear rates in curves further than 1 mile, and less than 1 mile, from a wayside lubricator. Multiple instances of Track Analyst can run on a central web server in a three-tier configuration. Initial data processing and cleanup is done using Rangecam Office in standalone databases.


Industrial Metrics Inc. - Products - visual rail

The Visual Rail Replacement Plan chart allows you to view the rail replacement forecast graphically, and edit your plan. Rail replacement locations show as grey bars at the replacement location. Several years of rail wear data may be plotted on the same screen. The vertical axis is replacement year.


Industrial Metrics Inc. - Products - visual tie plan

Tie replacement locations show as bars, solid black if within budget, hollow grey if not. Results of the Tie Planning Budget query and report are presented graphically. The Visual Tie Plan shows the Tie Planning Budget Report in chart form.
