LANDSCAPE is an essential software tool for 3D viewing and editing large terrain point sets such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) files. It provides an easy-to-understand view into the world of 3-dimensional LiDAR points. It offers tools for modifying the points and generating new data based on the points.
The editing tools in LANDSCAPE allow for easy modification of LiDAR data. Editing tools can be used to affect either a single point, all points in a project, or a selected sets of points. The feature collection tools in LANDSCAPE provide the ability to digitize 3D vectors using DAT/EM CAPTURE packages. CAD drawings in AutoCAD®, MicroStation®, and ArcGIS® formats may be superimposed into LANDSCAPE, and objects in those drawings may be used as input into the various tools in LANDSCAPE.
- View points in perspective stereo with many coloring and viewing options
- Work with multiple input files at one time
- Use a 3D input device to pan, zoom, rotate, select, and digitize
- Edit and reclassify points and write the corrected point set to a new file
- Thin points or create new files with selected points only
- Digitize new 3D vectors such as breaklines based on the point
- View existing .dxf, .dwg, .dgn, or .shp vector files with the points
- Color points by elevation, class, flight line, return number, RGB value, orthophoto colors, or file
- Draw and edit objects directly into AutoCAD, MicroStation, or ArcGIS
- Superimpose existing objects directly from AutoCAD, MicroStation, or ArcGIS
- Superimpose LANDSCAPE's points over a DAT/EM SUMMIT EVOLUTION photogrammetric model for direct comparison to images in true stereo. Optionally edit points using the SUMMIT cursor.
