TrueView EVO Users Guide

True View EVO Logo for the Users Guide

The TrueView EVO Users Guide is a comprehensive guide to GeoCue’s LP360 software for processing TrueView 3DIS, 2DIS, and guest sensors. TrueView EVO is a 64-bit Windows® desktop application used for processing and exploiting TrueView sensor data. It is GeoCue’s LP360 point cloud exploitation product with the addition of a collection of tools for TrueView sensor data workflows. Currently, TrueView Evo is available in four licensing levels:

  • TrueView EVO Explorer – A free viewer level of TrueView EVO equivalent to LP360 Viewer with Image Explorer enabled for viewing True Pose® photos.
  • TrueView EVO, formerly called True View EVO Lite – Enables PPK processing for guest systems, such as the DJI P4RTK. This is the next generation ASPSuite Advanced and is equivalent to LP360 Advanced with the addition of the TrueView workflow tools.  It is limited to product areas of no more than 10 km2 of LIDAR data.
  • TrueView EVO 3DIS, formerly called TrueView EVO – This is equivalent to LP360 Advanced with the addition of the True View workflow tools.  It is limited to product areas of no more than 10 km2 of LIDAR data.
  • TrueView EVO Unlimited – this is the same functionally as TrueView EVO but the size limit is removed. 

TrueView EVO is the software used to post-process your raw flight data. EVO will generate a 3D LIDAR point cloud in LAS format, colorize the point cloud, and geotag the images collected. It is based on GeoCue’s LIDAR point cloud exploitation software, LP360, and comes with all the same tools as LP360 Advanced. Tools such as accuracy assessment, automatic and manual ground classification, and contour/ surface exporting.

The TrueView EVO Users Guide covers installation and licensing for TrueView EVO, Applanix Corporation POSPac software, Agisoft LLC Metashape for EVO (MfE) and BayesMap Solutions, LLC StripAlign for EVO (SAfE). It also covers in detail the workflow for producing a colorized point cloud, geotagged images, and orthomosaic from the raw data collected by the TrueView 3DIS (TrueView 410, TrueView 435, TrueView 515, TrueView 615/620, TrueView 635/640, TrueView 645/650), TrueView 2DIS (TrueView 250), and guest systems, such as the DJI P4RTK, DJI M210-RTK, DJI Zenmuse P1 (M300-RTK), and DJI Zenmuse L1 (M300-RTK). For more information on the wide range of tools available in the underlying LP360 point cloud exploitation software, please refer to the LP360 tutorials and various tools, tips, and workflows.
