Ground Classification in True View Evo Processing SoftwareFebruary 17, 2020
As an example, we will run ground classification on a highway project we recently flew for the Alabama Department of Transportation (AL DOT). During a heavy rain, a section of Alabama route 231 was heavily damaged by ground sliding under the pavement. We were asked to do a True View 410 flight and provide a ground model.
Drone Camera/Laser Scanner Accuracy Assessment ConsiderationsFebruary 10, 2020
Do not be satisfied with only a network vertical accuracy report for your LIDAR data. This will only reveal horizontal issues if the check points were placed on sloped surfaces.
Reckon: Data Management within the True View EcosystemFebruary 04, 2020
There are two True View-specific elements that have already been added to Reckon: managing True View Points and managing sensor calibration files. True View Points accounting is keeping up with the points you are automatically allocated (for subscriptions sensors) or purchase (for both owned and subscription sensors). These points are consumed for processing subscription model sensors and for certain ad hoc processing modes for "Owned" sensors.
You Need a Drone Mapping Solution, Not a Product!January 30, 2020
The reason that we call the True View series an Ecosystem - you get all the components from GeoCue, including the full post-processing software stack and have a single contact for support. We do not sell you a single product; we provide you a complete end-to-end solution for producing high quality output analytics.
Positioning Options in True View WorkflowsJanuary 22, 2020
True View 3D imaging System (3DiS) use Applanix APX Position and Orientation Systems (POS). The POS is a GNSS-aided Inertial Navigation System that provides the precise position and orientation of the sensor at a rate of 200 observations per second. This information is needed to "geocode" LIDAR and determine the exterior orientation of images. Applanix supplies sophisticated software called "POSPac" for post-processing the POS data. POSPac is a rather complex software package so we (GeoCue) have wrapped POSPac (local or Cloud, depending on your business model) within our post-processing software, True View Evo. This reduces POS processing to a simple input wizard.
TerraScan 3D Vector ModelsJanuary 15, 2020
TerraScan and TerraPhoto have long had tools for creating 3D vector models from LIDAR, as well as nadir and oblique imagery. Terrasolid has continuously added to the toolset to make the process more efficient and expand the capabilities. The addition of automatic building and other above ground feature classification, along with automatic building vectorization and quality control workflows have made traditional airborne laser scanning useful for creating 3D city models for creating and updating city databases, including comparisons to existing city footprint information.
What is 3DIS, Anyway?January 15, 2020
We keep emphasizing that the True View 410 is a 3D Imaging System (3DIS), not just a drone LIDAR system. So what exactly is a 3DIS? Well, we coined the term so we get to define the technology!
Letter from the President - January 2020 EditionJanuary 13, 2020
GeoCue Group President and CTO, Lewis Graham, discusses updates and development for Q1, including our 2019 achievements.
GeoCue True View EcosystemJanuary 13, 2020
The release of the True View® 410 (Figure 1), our initial 3D Imaging Sensor (3DiS) has really exceeded my expectations. We migrated system production from our Research and Development (R&D) team to Manufacturing proper near the end of Q4-2019. We have a relatively smooth manufacturing workflow in place now and are working hard to build up a bit of "on the shelf" stock. So far, we have been selling/subscribing True View 410 systems as fast as we can manufacture them, a good problem to have!
Earth Sensor Portal - Publishing Your Geospatial Data Catalog OnlineJanuary 10, 2020
The volume of geospatial data being collected by government agencies and private sector organizations presents significant challenges for cataloging and distributing the data to all interested stakeholders in a timely, cost-effective and responsive manner. Data repositories sitting on hard disk drives or requiring staff involvement to respond to requests to search for and deliver data to stakeholders are extremely inefficient, do not scale with demand and waste valuable resources during critical periods, such as post-disaster events. There is a clear need for a sophisticated, scalable solution for the storage, cataloging and on-line distribution of spatial data archives currently locked behind outdated - or often non-existent - data distribution methods.
Drone LIDAR True View Training Down Under for C.R. KennedyOctober 22, 2019
