Many sites have large-scale projected systems defined just over the local site, which does not match existing national and state grids. We refer to these as local coordinate systems, and while local easting and northing image locations can be input to PhotoScan, Pix4D, etc., those applications do not support converting geographic coordinates to local projected coordinates. Learn how to use the new Local Coordinate System Manager tool in AirGon's ASPSuite. Read more...

This document is extracted and heavily revised from a series of articles that I wrote in 2013. The big change is that, at that time, we only had enforcement in the standalone version of LP360, which is our advanced LIDAR and point cloud processing software. Now, we are essentially feature-complete with new tools in standalone LP360. Not only are all of the breakline creation tools present, but we also have a very rich set of 3D feature edit tools.
