Toronto, Canada, April 15, 2013—Optech, the world leader in the development, manufacture and support of advanced lidar and camera survey instruments, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Optech LMS Professional Edition for users of the Optech Lynx Mobile Mapper™. LMS Professional 2.4 brings automated lidar rectification algorithms, used so effectively by Optech ALTM owners, to users of the Lynx Mobile Mapper as well. Developed over a decade of research and development, LMS Professional revolutionizes workflow efficiency while drastically improving the absolute and relative accuracy of mobile survey data.
“We are excited by the results,” said Albert Iavarone, Optech’s Business Manager, Mobile Survey. “Optech LMS Professional 2.4 will completely change the cost model for lidar surveys with the Lynx Mobile Mapper. Until now, controlling for INS error during mobile surveys has been a manual, sometimes costly process. LMS Professional completely changes that — its automated algorithms process raw lidar data and control points to produce output data of verified accuracy, ready for information extraction. This takes much of the cost and complexity out of the process.”
Beyond lidar rectification, Optech LMS Professional brings many other features designed to improve operating efficiency for owners of the Lynx Mobile Mapper, including multi-node processing, batch processing and automated coordinate conversions. LMS Professional 2.4 is currently in beta release, and will soon be available for purchase by all Lynx Mobile Mapper owners.
