Tutorial: Adding Synthetic Points using TerraScan

A short tutorial showing adding synthetic points using TerraScan. Synthetic points are not collected during the data capture but added in the data afterwards. Multiple points can be added using vector polygons. This video demonstrates how holes in the point cloud can be filled. For example, under bridges and in water areas based on measured…

Tutorial: How to Define Signal Markers

Define signal markers to automatically identify the control point and/or check point locations in TerraScan or TerraMatch. In TerraScan, the Output Control Report tool can create a report of elevation differences and the horizontal shift between a point cloud and ground control points (GCPs) using signal markers. Signal markers in TerraScan can only be used for adjusting…

Tutorial: Strip adjustment of DJI L1 UAV LIDAR Data

A short tutorial showing how the geometrical accuracy can be improved through the strip adjustment of a DJI L1 LIDAR point cloud. DJI L1 data is processed in TerraScan and TerraMatch after pre-processing in DJI Terra. A fluctuating strip adjustment is made in TerraMatch to improve the internal accuracy of the point cloud. The point…
