DJI Zenmuse L1 Solutions

The Zenmuse L1 is DJI’s first generation LiDAR system. When used with DJI M300 RTK and DJI Terra, the Zenmuse L1 gives you real-time 3D data, efficiently capturing structures and delivering accurate models. This entry-level system is a low-cost solution for users who are entering the surveying market.

DJI M300 RTK + DJI Zenmuse L1 + DJI Terra + LP360 Drone

This hardware and software kit includes the DJI Zenmuse L1, DJI M300 RTK drone, DJI Terra software, and LP360 Drone software. This enables users to fly drone LiDAR missions using the customer’s L1/L2 base station. GeoCue’s LP360 software provides an integrated suite of software tools for exploiting data collected from the Zenmuse L1.

Recommended Add-Ons: Metashape for LP360, StripAlign for LP360, LP360 Cloud Portal

DJI Zenmuse L1 + DJI Terra + LP360 Drone

This hardware and software kit includes DJI Zenmuse L1, DJI Terra software, and LP360 Drone software. This enables users to fly drone LiDAR missions using their own M300 RTK drone and L1/L2 base station. GeoCue’s LP360 software provides an integrated suite of software tools for exploiting data collected from the Zenmuse L1.

Recommended Add-Ons: Metashape for LP360, StripAlign for LP360, LP360 Cloud Portal

LP360 Drone

GeoCue’s LP360 Drone software provides an integrated suite of software tools for exploiting data collected from the Zenmuse L1. This is for customers who already own a survey-grade L1/L2 base station, M300 RTK drone, or Zenmuse L1 and now need a more comprehensive surveying workflow. For optimal surveying accuracy, GeoCue recommends and offers camera calibration at an additional cost.

Recommended Add-Ons: Metashape for LP360, StripAlign for LP360, LP360 Cloud Portal, Camera Calibration

Post-Processing for Guest Sensors

TrueView™ LP360 provides users the ability to:

  • Import project control for data QC
  • Generate accuracy reports with ease
  • Perform volumetric analysis
  • Classify data with automatic and interactive tools
  • Create and deliver final products
  • We provide direct support to customers who acquire our bundled solution.

Key features of pairing TrueView LP360 with the DJI Zenmuse Z1:

  • Virtually manage calibration files
  • Process in PPK mode using most L1/L2 base stations
  • Automatically gather and download ephemeris files
  • Update EXIF tags
  • Create photo package that feeds directly into Metashape (can be exported to Pix4D or Context Capture)
  • Eliminate bouncing between multiple applications with addition of Metashape for LP360

LP360 Desktop Photo

We have built interfaces directly into our drone mapping processing software, LP360 Drone, for driving both an embedded version of Metashape (Metashape for LP360 Drone) as well as the full GUI version of Metashape Professional. This design provides a seamless photogrammetric workflow for users of LP360 Drone processing software.

LP360 Desktop Photo supports the generation of:

  • LP360 Desktop Photo imagery for improving positional accuracy
  • Point clouds from imagery (“structure from motion”) – typically used in DJI camera workflows
  • Orthomosaics

LP360 Strip Align

Data can exhibit small geometric inconsistence, especially when combining data from multiple flights. BayesMap StripAlign for LP360 Drone detects and corrects these errors via an application of sensor-specific mathematical modeling. Strip Align is a fully automated process with no need for users to set project-specific “tuning” parameters or to move in and out of the LP360 Drone processing environment – press a button and it works!
