Virtual Surveyor Improves Point Cloud Workflow to Fully Leverage Drone LiDAR Payloads

By Eric Van Rees - 8th September 2021 - 06:19

Virtual Surveyor has developed an enhanced point cloud workflow for Version 8.3 of its drone surveying software that allows users to take full advantage of the new LiDAR payloads like the DJI Zenmuse L1. LiDAR drone sensor systems enable users to capture survey-grade elevation data even in vegetated terrain.

“The powerful DJI Zenmuse L1 system is especially receiving fast adoption by drone users in construction, engineering, and other surveying applications for its affordable price tag and ability to collect elevation data with 5-centimeter vertical accuracy,” said Tom Op ‘t Eyndt, Virtual Surveyor CEO.

Virtual Surveyor is a robust surveying software that bridges the gap between drone photogrammetric processing applications and engineering design packages, enabling surveyors to derive topographic information from drone data needed by engineers for construction, mining, and excavation projects. The software presents an interactive onscreen environment with drone orthophotos, digital surface models (DSMs), and/or LiDAR point clouds where users generate CAD models, create cut-and-fill maps, and calculate volume reports.
