TerraScan


TerraScan is the main application in the Terrasolid Software family for managing and processing all types of point clouds. It offers import and project structuring tools for handling the massive amount of points of a laser scanning campaign as well as the corresponding trajectory information. Various classification routines enable the automatic filtering of the point cloud.

Point cloud management, processing and visualization is only one part of TerraScan. In addition, the software provides automated tools for creating 3D vector data based on the laser points. Users can produce 3D vector models of buildings (up to LOD2) automatically over nationwide areas, vectorize power lines, run corridor analysis reporting danger objects or analyze road surface condition or detect paint lines and curb stones. The results from the fully automatic classification can be refined by using half-automatic and manual classification tools in combination with versatile 3D point cloud visualization options.

Most of the automatic classification routines can be combined in macros for batch processing. In combination with batch processing macros can be executed outside TerraScan and MicroStation, even on other workstations over a LAN.

TerraScan supports several import and export formats, including the LAS and LAZ formats, TerraScan Binary and TerraScan Fast Binary formats, as well as ASCII formats that can be defined according to the users’ needs.

TerraScan is available in Full, UAV and Lite versions

Go even further with TerraScan

Automatic classification routines can be combined in macros for batch processing. Using TerraSlave macros can be executed outside TerraScan even on other workstations over a LAN. License to run TerraSlave on the same computer than TerraScan is included giving you the ability to utilize your computer 24×7.

TerraScan supports several import and export formats, including the LAS and LAZ formats, TerraScan Binary formats, as well as user defined ASCII formats.

Point cloud management, processing and visualization is only one part of TerraScan. In addition, the software provides tools for creating 3D vector data based on the laser points. There is also the opportunity to produce 3D vector models of buildings (up to LOD2) automatically over large areas. Toolsets for checking and modifying the building models manually enable the creation of more accurate and higher-quality building models. For the application field of power line processing, TerraScan contains tools for the automatic vectorization of power line wires, manual placement of tower models as well as labeling, reporting and danger object analysis tools.
