Feb 16, 2021 | News

This new Terrain module is a game changer when it comes to the extraction of classified point clouds.

Designing the next generation of UAV LIDAR solutions, YellowScan is pleased to announce the launch of a new module: Terrain. Available as an option in the CloudStation, this Terrain module will allow users to automatically classify grounds from off-ground, as well as export different digital elevation models.

The Terrain module allows for a better and simplified experience for customers to extract classified point clouds, which leads to more efficiency and time saving.



The key business benefits are the following:

Simplified classification process.

Once the point cloud is generated in the CloudStation Core, the Terrain module allows users to segregate ground and off-ground points automatically.

Petter Hoffmann from Trimtec adds that The module is working quite smoothly, is very easy to use, very user friendly, well designed and fairly quick”.
