SEATTLE -- Minecode Corporation, a provider of software and product development solutions for enterprise businesses, announces the release of LiDAR-M version 3.2, a stand-alone LiDAR data processing software developed on Microsoft .NET technology. LiDAR software is used for displaying, viewing, editing and processing the LiDAR files. LiDAR-M is extensively used in markets such as energy, engineering, utility, surveying, and municipal governments.

LiDAR, which stands for “Light Detection and Ranging,” is an optical remote sensing technology that measures properties of scattered light to find range and other information of distant targets. LiDAR sends pulses of laser light to the ground; in the time it takes for the signal to reflect back, the signal is measured. Then, relative heights of objects and changes in terrain are detected.

After the LiDAR data is gathered, LiDAR-M analyzes the data and then processes it into industry-standard file formats, such as LAS, BIN, DXF formats.

“Unlike other similar LiDAR processing products, LiDAR-M does not require third-party software to run,” said PK Samal, President of Minecode. “LiDAR-M has no limit on the number of data points it is able to process.”

LiDAR-M has the capability to observe cloud points accurately in different cross-sectional views. Also, LiDAR-M gives users the ability to classify data points automatically and manually. LiDAR-M features extensive data viewing capabilities, such as “zoom” and “pan”, and delivers data files in multiple input/output formats. The mapping-supportive functionalities of CAD software are built into the interface.

“Our industry-standard software coupled with Minecode’s vast technical expertise supplies engineers with quality photogrammetry and LiDAR tools,” Samal said. “Our worldwide resources and project teams cut costs and increase speed for users.”

Minecode is a privately held company that provides software and product development solutions for medium to large enterprises and government agencies globally. Headquartered in Bellevue, Washington, Minecode has offices in India and the United States. Clients include small and medium-sized businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and government agencies.
