Virtual Surveyor unveils innovative method of generating topographic surfaces from drone survey data

By GeoConnexion - 2nd November 2022 - 21:23

Virtual Surveyor has unveiled newly developed Auto-Flip Edges functionality that generates more accurate terrain surfaces from drone survey data. This innovative triangulation process is included in Version 8.7 of the popular Virtual Surveyor software package, along with upgrades in overall ease of use. 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 combines drone orthophotos, digital surface models (DSMs), and/or lidar point clouds to create an interactive virtual environment where users generate CAD models, create cut-and- fill maps and calculations, or calculate volume reports.
