The newly launched YellowScan LiveStation is designed to help surveyors monitor the validity and quality of data being collected in real time to ensure surveys are being carried out free of defects.
The new in-flight LiDAR station was designed by surveyors for surveyors, for complex and long endurance flight operations. YellowScan touts its use of cutting-edge visualization design. YellowScan LiveStation renders a real-time, 3D representation of the point cloud during flight, with ability to zoom, translate or rotate. Simultaneously, the user interface presents an immediate summary of the system’s status.
The transect view allows the operator to easily check, in real-time, whether the LiDAR is able to penetrate a forest’s canopy and sample its ground. Missions can later be replayed for analyzing flight conditions and data.
Key features include:
- Live 3D point cloud visualization (including zooming, translation and rotation)
- Live transect and trajectory visualization
- Speed, altitude, IMU and GNSS controls
- Mission replay
YellowScan LiveStation will be on display at the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF 2017) in Denver, starting Feb. 13. An in-flight LiDAR workshop will take place Feb. 16 in Golden, Colo.
YellowScan designs, develops and produces UAV mapping solutions for professional applications. Fully integrated, ultra-light and easy to use, the automated data collection tools are used by customers around the world in fields such as surveying, forestry, environmental research, archeology, corridor mapping, civil engineering and mining.
