The True View EVO Users Guide is a comprehensive guide to GeoCue’s True View Evo software. True View EVO is a 64-bit Windows® desktop application used for processing and exploiting True View sensor data. It is GeoCue’s LP360 point cloud exploitation product with the addition of a collection of tools for True View sensor data workflows. Currently, True View Evo is available in four licensing levels:
- True View EVO Explorer – A free viewer level of True View EVO equivalent to LP360 Viewer with Image Explorer enabled for viewing True Pose® photos.
- True View EVO Lite, now called True View EVO – 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 True View workflow tools. It is limited to product areas of no more than 10 km2 of LIDAR data.
- True View EVO, now called True View EVO 3DIS – 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.
- True View EVO Unlimited – this is the same functionally as True View EVO but the size limit is removed.
True View 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 True View EVO Users Guide covers installation and licensing for True View 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 True View 3DIS (True View 410, True View 435, True View 515, True View 615/620, True View 635/640), True View 2DIS (True View 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.
