3D Point Cloud Viewing and Editing Software
  • Product Description +

    The latest in innovative software from DAT/EM Systems International, Landscape is an essential software tool for editing large terrain point sets such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) files. It provides an advanced, efficient, fast, and easy to understand portal into the world of 3-dimensional LiDAR points. Landscape is equipped with utilities for editing, modifying, and classifying 3D points (point clouds) and for generating new data based on the points. Landscape’s tools can be configured by the user to enhance understanding of the data view.

    The editing tools in Landscape allow easy modification of point cloud data including a single point, all points in a project, or a selection built using Landscape’s sophisticated filtering tools. Included with Landscape is DAT/EM Drawing Tools, a simple built-in vector editor which may be used to collect and save vector features in a variety of formats. For more advanced digitizing tools, one or more companion DAT/EM Capture™ module may be added.

    Easily integrated with Summit Evolution™, point clouds in Landscape may be viewed in tandem with stereo imagery, and each data type may be used seamlessly with the other to manage, edit, and collect vector and point cloud data.

  • Key Features +

    —Viewpoints in perspective stereo with many coloring, viewing, and filtering options.

    —Colorize the view of the point cloud by elevation, return, flight line, intensity, RGB color (orthophoto), or classification.

    —No limit to the number of simultaneous input files; many point file formats supported.

    —Supports 3D mouse devices for navigation, selection, and digitizing.

    —Roam, zoom, pan, and rotate from any angle or distance.

    —Edit and reclassify points.

    —Output the revised point set to a new file.

    —Use the built-in vector editor to digitize new 3D vectors such as breaklines based on the points.

    —Optionally digitize directly into AutoCAD, MicroStation, or ArcGIS using DAT/EM Capture.

    —View existing .dxf, .dwg, .dgn, or .shp vector files with the points or superimpose objects directly from AutoCAD, MicroStation, or ArcGIS.

    —Superimpose Landscape’s points on Summit’s stereo imagery model and use Summit’s 3D cursor for editing.
  • Software Abilities +

    Landscape's tools can be used to affect a single point, all points in a project, or a selection built using Landscape’s sophisticated filtering tools. DAT/EM Drawing Tools, a simple built-in vector editor used to collect and save vector features in a variety of formats, is included with Landscape.

    Point clouds in Landscape are easily integrated with Summit Evolution and may be viewed in tandem with stereo imagery. Each may be used seamlessly with the other to manage, edit, and collect vector and point cloud data.

    For more advanced digitizing tools, one or more companion DAT/EM Capture module may be added. With Capture, advanced CAD and GIS formats for AutoCAD, MicroStation, and ArcGIS may all be superimposed and viewed in the Landscape 3D viewing environment. Objects in those drawings may be used as input into the various tools in Landscape.
