“Field Scan to Finished Plat” with Carlson Point Cloud

Carlson Point Cloud is a modular program that provides the powerful ability to go from field scan to finished plat, all with seamless integration to Carlson SurveyCarlson Civil and Carlson Mining.

Carlson Point Cloud delivers a whole new level of powerful automation for large data sets. It gives laser scanner users the ability to process millions of data points with Carlson Software ease-of-use.

Register your scan to local coordinates, filter or decimate the points, overlay raster images in 3D, snap to edges and code the descriptions for automated field-to finish processing of linework and symbols and create contours, profiles, sections, and breaklines. You will be able to read scan data from many instruments, view and process up to 1 billion points, and then perform the Field-to-Finish from the scanned data. This Carlson Software office product allows users to export surface models, points, contours, breaklines, grid and profiles to CAD. Read how AeroView Services uses Carlson PointCloud and other Carlson products in their UAV business.
