TerraScan Raster Backdrop

If you choose to load backdrop images while editing in TerraScan (while through GeoCue’s Process in TerraScan, DirectDrive, or directly in MicroStation’s Raster Manager) and your images show up in the wrong place relative to your LAS points, MicroStation’s Raster Manager may be interpreting your TFW (sister file) or coordinates incorrectly.  Raster Manager defaults the…

Raster Bit Depth

GeoCue, Terrasolid and LP360 can all output Raster files with different Bit Depths. The bit depth (sometimes called pixel depth) of a cell determines the range of values that a particular raster file can store, which is based on the formula 2n (where n is the bit depth). For example, an 8-bit raster can have…

Loss of VLR information by TerraScan

With the release of TerraScan v017.001 for CE, TerraScan should now be preserving the projection VLR information in the LAS header. However, when processing with TerraScan, either directly or indirectly through GeoCue, there are some scenarios in which VLRs can be stripped from your data, or at least appear to be removed. Scenario 1: Reading…

Ground targets for horizontal check for LIDAR data collection

An important evaluation to make when performing a QAQC analysis of a LIDAR data set is a control point comparison. Typically, this refers to checking the vertical accuracy of a LIDAR data set. In regards to vertical check/control point location: “Unlike horizontal checkpoints, vertical checkpoints are not necessarily required to be clearly defined or readily…
