New Enhancements for UAVs from Applanix
Applanix recently announced two significant enhancements in the latest release of its POSPac UAV post-processing software that greatly benefit the process of mapping or surveying with UAVs: UAV support for POSPac Trimble Post-Processed CenterPoint® RTX™ (or POSPac PP-RTX) when flying within the Trimble RTX™ Fast service regions, and LiDAR Quality Control (LiDAR QC) Tools for UAVs, a new software module specifically designed to refine the accuracy of LiDAR point cloud data collected with UAVs. These two new functions guarantee higher accuracy and higher quality results, while streamlining project set-up and in-field processes in a simple and cost-effective manner. Any project’s workflow can easily be augmented to include either functionality by using POSPac’s convenient GUI, or through its quick batch-processing mode.
Both software enhancements aim to simplify surveying logistics and lower project costs through task automation, without having to sacrifice high-level accuracy. Applanix’ latest POSPac release – and combined solution with the Trimble APX board sets – directly meets the challenge posed by a UAV’s short flight endurance: to collect, manage, and process all types of complex data in a short span of time, with a reduction in invested manpower.
