LiDARUSA integrates Lidar and imagery with SimActive software
SimActive has announced that users of LiDARUSA’s multi-sensor systems can now take advantage of SimActive’s Lidar point cloud colourization capabilities. Using SimActive’s Correlator3D software, users can integrate Lidar data and imagery to create more realistic models. SimActive is a leading photogrammetry software developer.
To begin, the Lidar point clouds are imported into Correlator3D, and the collected imagery is automatically registered with the Lidar data acting as control for the registration process. Each Lidar point is then colourized using the images. Typically, Lidar point clouds do not include realistic colours, which can limit their user-friendliness. With Correlator3D, it is easy to add colour to the Lidar point clouds based on photogrammetry images, resulting in more accurate and understandable data.
