Feature file merge and copy options

In LP360 and TrueView Evo, the user can to merge multiple feature (SHP) files or copy a single file to a new feature layer. This is useful for combining files to have a single file for all features or simply creating quick back up of the feature file. The process for performing these operations is…

Associate Images with Features

One of the features available in True View Evo and LP360, that came from adding image support for the True View 3DIS, is the ability to associate images with existing features in a feature file. Depending on file organization, images can be assigned to specific features and displayed when selected in Feature Analyst. This could…

DEM and breakline export for use in CAD software

When generating a DEM in LP360 / True View Evo for import into CAD software, there are a few nuances to consider. Unlike the commonly used LandXML CAD surface format, the DEM format will only enforce breaklines at the resolution of the generated raster. In order to properly enforce and display the breakline areas, you…

Civil3D Import DEM Issues

Civil3D has known import DEM issues. The user may notice a systematic shift related to units or grid positioning mismatch when comparing the imported DEM to other data in Civil3D, such as the breaklines that were also generated in LP360/True View EVO as part of the . Note: Depending on the scenario, the user may…

Update LAS file pyramids

Under normal circumstances, LAS files only need have pyramids generated during initial import into LP360/True View Evo. However, there are times when the user must rebuild LAS file pyramids after performing specific LP360 tasks. This article will review the method used to update pyramids, as well as the known tasks which will precipitate the user…

Using a point grid based on a vertical feature for change detection

It may be desired to create a grid of points for a vertical feature, such as a wall in LP360 or True View Evo. This could be used to detect the change of a set of gridded points, that are static in Z, which could potentially shift planimetrically over time. The following outlined workflow will…
