What’s New in GeoCue 2014

GeoCue 2014 is the major GeoCue feature upgrade release for 2014. GeoCue has now been in heavy day-to-day production (in commercial release) for about 10 years. Many of the new features that have appeared in GeoCue are a direct result of the feedback that we received from our user base of GeoCue customers.

One significant new feature is the added support for LAS 1.4. If you are involved in LIDAR workflows in North America, you will immediately understand the value of supporting LAS Version 1.4, Point Data Record Format 6 through 8 as these will be the required deliverable format for the USGS 3D Elevation Program. Of course, this will drive all standard LIDAR deliverables in North America so it will be critical for you to move to the new PDRF’s available only in LAS version 1.4. If you are a current Terrasolid owner but haven’t yet deployed GeoCue, you will be interested in the seamless LAS V1.4 workflows GeoCue now offers along with the increased functionality in the batch processing of Terrasolid macros via GeoCue’s Command Dispatch System. We have added tools to GeoCue 2014 allowing you to continue processing data in LAS 1.1 LAS 1.3 but convert to LAS 1.4 for final delivery packaging. If you own a RCD30 sensor system, you will want to take advantage of the integration of FramePro into GeoCue to provide seamless workflows and advanced batch processing capabilities. Our benchmark testing has demonstrated a reliable increase of 2.0-2.5x processing throughput over standalone FramePro environments.

If you are a DMC owner you will want to take advantage of the tighter GeoCue integration with PPS. As with the RCD30 workflow, benchmark testing for the DMC workflow shows an increase of 2.0-2.5x processing throughput over standalone PPS environments

The highlights of the new features in GeoCue Version 2014 are described in the What’s New in GeoCue 2014 document with details provided in the on-line help.
