Terrasolid Maps the World in 3D –

3D PluraView Monitors Visualize in Stereo

For consistent and precise digital GIS and photogrammetry workflows, raw data must first be converted into integrable and thus valuable information components that meet the requirements of the respective application environments. The 3D point cloud processing modules from the Finnish software provider Terrasolid, such as TerraScan, TerraModeler, TerraMatch, TerraPhoto and TerraStereo, are highly developed, intelligent, and powerful applications. They are able to process and model laser points with their XYZ coordinates at high speed and can also display the result in 3D-stereo. During the last 20 years, the capabilities of the available LiDAR hardware has developed rapidly together with the capabilities of the processing software, with Terrasolid applications at the forefront.

Passive beam splitter technology for demanding GIS workflows: The 3D PluraView monitor from Schneider Digital. The 3-D stereo software application TerraStereo from the manufacturer Terrasolid is compatible with this innovative high-end display and has now been officially certified for it.

The variety of LiDAR applications has developed rapidly within just a few years: surveyors and civil engineers use 3D point clouds for terrain modeling, for the construction and monitoring of bridges, dams, high-voltage power lines, as well as for determining the quality of road surfaces, for high-precision measurement with millimeter accuracy of railway tracks and the entire railway infrastructure. City planners receive very precise information about the existing vegetation in cities, and precise reference points for building measurements are recorded at the same time. Archaeologists use precise and RGB-textured LiDAR data to record and reconstruct important cultural monuments. Recently, following the massive fire at Notre-Dame, the medieval church in the center of Paris, the remaining structure was completely surveyed with high-resolution LiDAR instruments. These are just a few examples for the use of LiDAR data, data that has been processed for many years with the versatile and constantly further developed Terrasolid application tools.

Use cases develop due to the increasing diversity and rapid development of LiDAR data acquisition scanners. Very small but precise airborne laser scanners are available for ‘Unmanned Aerial Systems’ (UAS), often also referred to as ‘drones’. In larger, single or twin-engine aircraft, very powerful LiDAR instruments are used for greater altitudes and for covering large areas. On the ground (terrestrial), LiDAR data acquisition begins with very small scanners that are hand-held and are therefore ultra-mobile, or – somewhat larger and very precise – laser measurement heads installed on tripods with a range of several hundred meters. These are used in combination with digital cameras, often mounted on vehicle roofs, for fast, mobile LiDAR data acquisition.

The dual-screen, stereoscopic 3D PluraView monitors from Schneider Digital visualize these point clouds in the highest 3D-stereo display quality and are ‘plug & play’ compatible with the TerraStereo software by Terrasolid. Users benefit from flicker-free, pixel-precise visualization with resolutions of up to 4K per screen and eye. The 3D PluraView monitors are the perfect visualization solution for comfortable work with high-resolution LiDAR data in all 3D-stereo and VR / AR desktop application areas. The compatibility of TerraStereo with the 3D PluraView monitor family has now been officially certified by the manufacturer Schneider Digital.
