GeoCue Releases LP360 2013.2.24

Huntsville, Ala., Sept. 5, 2013—GeoCue (via its wholly owned subsidiary, QCoherent Software LLC) is pleased to announce the latest experimental release (EXP Release) of LP360.  LP360 is the world’s most powerful and popular LIDAR extension for the ArcGIS® environment.  The current EXP release (version 2013.2.24.0) includes numerous new features aimed at different LIDAR exploitation workflows.  These new features are available in all three versions of LP360; LP360 for ArcGIS®; LP360 for Windows®, 32 bit; and LP360 for Windows®, 64 bit.

For all workflows:

  • Full support for LAS version 1.4
  • New LAS file load dialog, providing tabular views of LAS file header information and basic integrity testing.  Table can be copied and pasted to Excel.  Supports Drag and Drop file addition from Windows Explorer.
  • Filter by Scan Angle (for both old style 1 byte and new LAS 1.4 2 byte scan angle)
  • “Insert into Map” option added for products generated by the Export Wizard
  • LP360 has been internationalized
  • Japanese language version (alpha)
  • Numerous bug fixes and performance enhancements

For Point Cloud Quality Check (QC) workflows:

  • Dynamic delta elevation (dZ) visualization for assessing swath to swath relative vertical accuracy
  • Dynamic point density viewing mode for graphically inspecting LIDAR point density
  • Image creation and export for both dZ and density images (via the Export Wizard) to allow synoptic, graphical quality reports
  • Automatic loading of symbology for “View by Point Source ID”

GeoCue worked closely with Dr. Al Karlin, Senior GIS Scientist at the Southwest Florida Water Management District on the quality check improvements in this release of LP360.  “The vertical error between swaths is a critically important metric when considering hydrology in flat terrains,” said Dr. Karlin.  “LP360’s tools to perform this analysis very quickly over large projects will allow us to immediately assess the relative vertical accuracy of data we receive from our vendors.  This new capability really complements the already extensive QC workflows that can be achieved in LP360.”

For advanced exploitation and analysis, including point clouds from dense image matching such as micro-Unmanned Aerial Vehicles:

  • Volumetric computation with Cut & Fill map added as a new Point Cloud Task (beta)
  • Conflation is now available as a Point Cloud Task and includes direct 3D digitizing of points, lines and polygons with a wide variety of Z conflation algorithms (beta)

The LP360 Experimental release program allows customers early access to “in-progress” features and improvements.  Customers with valid maintenance contracts can download this new EXP release via the LP360 “Check for Updates” feature.
