TrueView EVO / LP360 Drone Users Guide

True View EVO Logo for the Users Guide

The TrueView EVO/LP360 Drone Users Guide is a comprehensive guide to GeoCue’s LP360 software for processing TrueView 3DIS, 2DIS, and guest sensors. TrueView EVO/LP360 Drone 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/LP360 Drone is available in the following licensing levels:

  • LPViewer – A free viewer level of LP360 for viewing a point cloud.
  • TrueView EVO/LP360 Drone Explorer – A low-cost inspector license equivalent to LP360 Viewer, with Image Explorer enabled for viewing True Pose® photos, and Import TrueView Cycle for field QC checks. This is also the license that should be purchased for delivery with LP360 Explorer Packages provided to end users so they can make full use of the TrueView 3DIS point cloud and photos, plus any derivative products you generate for them.
  • LP360 Drone – Enables PPK processing for guest systems, such as the DJI P4RTK plus TrueView 2DIS and 3DIS. This is the next generation ASPSuite Advanced and is equivalent to LP360 Standard with the addition of the TrueView workflow tools and tools for ground classification and volumetric computations. It is limited to product areas of no more than 10 km2 of LAS data. Available as an annual subscription or a perpetual license.
  • LP360 Drone+Fast Photo – Enables local Fast Orthomapping at a lower resolution, local Orthomapping processing if you have your own Metashape license, and Cloud based Orthomapping (using TrueView points). Available as an annual subscription or a perpetual license.
  • LP360 Drone+Cloud Photo 3000 – Enables local Fast Orthomapping, local Orthomapping processing if you have your own Metashape license, and Cloud based Orthomapping (includes 3000 photos per month, additional photos may be processed using TrueView points). Available as an annual subscription or a perpetual license.
  • LP360 Drone+Strip Align – Enables Strip Align tools for adjusting for dynamic trajectory errors in the dataset. Available as an annual subscription or a perpetual license.
  • LP360 Drone+Business Intelligence Tools – Enables specific point cloud tasks designed for extraction of non-ground features, such as rail, power lines, buildings, trees. Available as an annual subscription or a perpetual license.
  • LP360 Drone+Unlimited – this is the same functionally as LP360 Drone with the size limit removed. Available as an annual subscription or a perpetual license.

The legacy TrueView EVO license levels are:

  • TrueView EVO, formerly named TrueView 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 LAS data.
  • TrueView EVO 3DIS, formerly named TrueView EVO – This 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 LAS data.
  • TrueView EVO Unlimited – this is the same functionally as TrueView EVO with the size limit removed. Available as an annual subscription.

TrueView EVO/LP360 Drone is the software used to post-process your raw flight data. TrueView EVO/LP360 Drone 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. Tools such as accuracy assessment, automatic and manual ground classification, and contour/ surface exporting.

The TrueView EVO/LP360 Drone Users Guide covers installation and licensing for TrueView EVO/LP360 Drone, 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 655/660), 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 for items not specifically outlined in the LP360 Drone tutorials and LP360 Drone Tools, Tips and Workflows.
