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. Metashape for LP360 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. StripAlign 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!

True View 515 FAQ

Have questions about the TrueView 515 system? Review our TrueView 515 FAQ.

TrueView 3D imaging Sensors are designed and manufactured in our Huntsville, Alabama, USA facilities.

Data from a standard LIDAR system can be used to generate a 3D monochromatic point cloud.

Attributes of the point cloud typically include:

• X, Y, Z position in an exploitation spatial reference system (SRS)

• High resolution GPS time of pulse

• Intensity of the laser return

• Return number (if your LIDAR is multiple return capable)

• Scan angle (angle of the beam relative to nadir when this point was detected)

• Flight line (swath) ID


Note that no color (or, in general, radiometric) information is contained in the above information. A 3D imaging sensor (3DIS) includes both a laser scanner and one or more synchronized photogrammetric cameras (the TrueView 515 includes two Red-Green Blue photogrammetric cameras). The system is designed to achieve a coincident field of view (FOV) from all sensors. Post-processing software colorizes the points from the camera imagery to add, in the case of the TrueView 515, Red-Green-Blue (RGB) values for each LIDAR point. Note that the camera system in a 3DIS is not restricted to RGB cameras.

Derived products are what the name implies – analytic data derived from the base TrueView 515 products. These are generated using workflows and tools within LP360 Drone.

Examples of derived products include:

• Classified ground model – 3D LIDAR points that represent bare earth. These are generated using both automatic and manual editing tools in LP360 Drone

• Automatically derived planar surfaces such as building roof prints

• Topographic contours

• Automatic and manual digitized stockpile boundaries (“toes”)

• Volumetric analysis such as stockpile volumes and cut/fill computations

• Profiles and cross sections

• Automatic rail extraction tools (classified rail points, vectorized center line)

• Automatic power line extraction tools (classified wire points, vectorized catenaries)

• Gridded elevation models derived from ground points and first surface points


In addition to the above, LP360 Drone supports feature-constrained (“breakline enforced”) modeling. This allows creation of surface data that is constrained by features such as water body boundaries, edge of pavement, downstream flow, retaining walls and so forth.
