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. Read more...

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. You really need to take a deeper dive. Read more...

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. Read more...

f you are considering a system and the vendor is giving you a shopping list of where to get the various components (especially post-processing software), then alarm bells should be going off. Yes, you can get the system running but at what cost in operational efficiency? This is 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 LIDAR/Imaging sensor; we provide you a complete end-to-end solution for producing high quality output analytics. Read more...

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. Read more...

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.

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! Read more...

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! Read more...

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.

As with traditional airborne laser scanning and camera systems, with drone or sUAS based LIDAR and camera systems it is necessary to obtain a good project calibration. The proper calibration of a system allows pieces of collected data, whether that be image frames or flight lines of laser data, collected over the course of the project to be merged together as if they were collected at the same time by one giant sensor. This requires a good relative calibration, where the data from one flight line to another, or one image to another matches well Read more...
