This is the fourth edition of our series on breaklines in LP360, our advanced LIDAR and point cloud processing software. In this edition, we will have a look at how features are represented in LP360 as well as the tools available for collecting “flat” breaklines. Read more...

In the last part of this series, we discussed in some detail how a Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) can be constrained by features external to the point cloud model such as lines, points and polygons. In this month’s edition, we will look at contours and how LP360, our advanced LIDAR and point cloud processing software, can extract elevation information from point cloud data for assigning to the Z component of feature vertices.

This article is a continuation of the discussion of breaklines in the standalone version of LP360, our advanced LIDAR and point cloud processing software. In last month’s installment we discussed the overall concept of data modeling, especially the Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN). In this installment, I will discuss the general concept of adding constraints in the form of breaklines to these models. 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.

In the last edition of LP360 News, we discussed the creation of 3D breaklines for enforcing situations where the elevation must be a constant along the breakline. In this final installment of the breakline series, we will consider the case of varying elevation along the breakline. Read more...

In the last edition of LP360 News, we discussed the creation of 3D breaklines. Recall that, for our purposes, a 3D breakline is a vector that has an elevation value (Z) associated with each vertex. In this edition, let’s look at a constant Z example such as a flat water body. Read more...

As we have discussed in the last two issues of LP360 News, breaklines are two- or three-dimensional graphic data (points, lines, polygons) that we introduce into an elevation model to alter the topology. Surveyed mass points, scanned contour lines, correlated stereo models, and myriad other sources produce irregular elevation data that can be modeled as a TIN, and tools (such as LP360) that can manipulate random points are generally adept at processing these various data sources.

In the previous issue of LP360 News, I introduced the use of Triangulated Irregular Networks (TIN) for modeling point derived elevation data as well as the basic concepts of “soft” breaklines. I realized when writing that first article that it is probably a useful exercise to review contours. Thus this part II article will be devoted to this subject and we will continue with breaklines in the third article of the series. Read more...

As with any data, breaklines should undergo a QA/QC process. For breaklines this should entail a check for potential topology errors as well as incorrect elevation values. Read more...
