Topographical mapping tool utilizing LiDAR, satellite and other datasets
Wednesday 10 May, 2017
IMGeospatial has developed a software solution that automatically generates a Digital Terrain Model (DTM), based on a combination of datasets including LiDAR and satellite. The algorithms identify features in the data such as curbs, walls, fences, hedges and bridges that impact on flow paths. Furthermore, it offers unique resilience with its ability to automatically identify where changes in the landscape have occurred, sending ‘alerts for change’ information to subscribers. The enhanced DTM is also available as a plug in for existing catchment modelling software packages to greatly improve their accuracy.
