Airborne 1 is pleased to release LiDAR XLR8R 3.0, the eagerly awaited upgrade to LiDAR XLR8R's beta version 2.0. The product of a key partnership with Canadian software developer, Ambercore Software Inc., LiDAR XLR8R 3.0 is a robust LiDAR data management, analysis, and visualization tool for LiDAR and geospatial data consumers.
The XLR8R 3.0 version offers users batch processing and feature merger capability, as well as enhanced pyramiding, 3D visualization, and geo-referencing functionality for raster data.
LiDAR XLR8R is the first of its kind to boast NO limits to the number of points that can be uploaded and processed on a standard PC. It can quickly generate digital elevation models (DEMs) from LiDAR input data, and enables users to build, view, analyze, and disseminate 3D surfaces based on LiDAR point data. The software includes innovative algorithms for data regularization and rapid processing, as well as user defined and optimized surface building parameters to control surface precision, gap filling method, and flat area reconstruction. The software's stunning 2D and 3D capabilities include transparency, multi-layering, draping, and seamless 2D/3D switching. LiDAR XLR8R also imports and exports to a variety of familiar formats that include ESRI, USGS, and MI, among others. The software allows users to perform an array of analytical tasks simultaneously (utilizing dynamic hyper-threading technology) all while maintaining normal workflow.
