Creating dz Images

Relative vertical accuracy, or flight line offsets, or the swath-to-swath fit between flight lines or drive passes can be qualitatively assessed using dz images. Or quantitatively assessed by exporting and analyzing the values. The USGS LiDAR Base Specification has evolved over the years with some different recommendations for evaluating interswath (overlap) consistency, and there are…

Building Filter and Extraction for dense datasets

Some LP360 Point Cloud Tasks (PCT’s) were originally designed for older manned lidar datasets, which have significantly lower point density than modern sUAS datasets. TrueView and other sUAS sensors have the capability of producing much denser point clouds, so these processes can take much longer if running on the entire dataset. A common strategy and workflow…
