GeoCue Group Inc. has updated its RIEGL-based True View® 3D Imaging Systems (3DIS®) with the launch of the new True View 635/640 3DIS. GeoCue’s True View 3DIS family brings a unique combination of fused LIDAR sensors and photogrammetric cameras in a fully calibrated platform, allowing direct generation of high accuracy, colorized LIDAR data in less time than is required to fly the mission.
GeoCue’s first generation of RIEGL miniVUX-2UAV-based 3DIS integrated systems, the True View 615 and 620, introduced compact, survey-grade 3DIS providing high network accuracy and precision (low noise). Combined with GeoCue’s industry-leading integrated data processing software suite, True View EVO, all GeoCue 3DIS include the full post-processing software workflow, including direct integration with Applanix POSPac.
True View EVO supports the direct creation of many standard project deliverables including ground classified point clouds, surface models, contours, Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), volumetric analysis, wire extraction and similar products, without the need for additional third-party software.
Staying in step with RIEGL’s latest products, the True View 635/640 are equipped with the recently released RIEGL miniVUX-3UAV laser scanner. The miniVUX-3UAV, a 360° rotating mirror scanner, increases the scanner frequency to 300 kHz and offers a unique mode where the 200,000 pulse per second scan rate is focused in a 120° cross-track field of view, providing significantly increased point densities in aerial mapping applications. This increased density, when fused with GeoCue’s integrated mapping cameras, provides stunning colorized point clouds bringing collected data to life!
GeoCue’s President, Lewis Graham, stated, “RIEGL sets the standard for high accuracy laser scanning. Our R&D team were amazed at the density and quality of the data produced by the miniVUX-3UAV. RIEGL proactively worked with us to slot this model into our long-term supply agreement, allowing us early access to the new system. In fact, we were able to ship the first production unit to a customer in late January.”
