LP360 includes an ArcGIS extension version as well as standalone versions with no CAD or GIS prerequisites. In addition to numerous new features, the company announced a renaming of the product set:
- LP360 Basic (formerly LP360) – LIDAR data import, visualization, QC and product generation
- LP360 Standard (formerly Classify) – Adds interactive data classification, geometrybased classification, conflation, breakline and hydrologic enforcement tools to the Basic version
- LP360 Advanced (formerly Extractor)– Add algorithmic classification to the Standard version
Among the many new features are algorithmic tools (LP360 Advanced version) including:
- Low Points – finds single or clusters of ‘low’ points in preparation for ground classification
- Isolated Points – finds isolated points that are too sparse to form a surface (such as spurious water reflections)
- Ground Classifier – Automatically classifies points that have reflected from ground
- Statistical Noise – Identifies points based on deviation excursions. Useful for removing noise from a ground surface
- Point group vectorization – Constructs polygons, in shape file format, of point clusters of a designated class(es) – useful for constructions such as vegetation polygons
In addition to a number of other new features, LP360 standalone is now available in a 64-bit version.
Each license of LP360 includes the right to run a single (non-simultaneous) instance of LP360 for ArcGIS, LP360 32-bit or LP360 64-bit. This packaging offers customers maximum flexibility in how the software is deployed and used.
QCoherent continues to offer its GeoCue integrated solutions for Quality Check/Edit (LP360 EQC) and railway feature extraction (LP360 RFX) through its OEM relationship with GeoCue Corporation.
