SPH Engineering combines its UgCS software with GreenValley International’s LiDAR360 system.
In recent years, more and more surveyors have turned to drone-assisted lidar to complete large survey projects, using the technology to survey large and complex terrain faster and more accurately. According to a report from Fortune Business InsightsThe LiDAR UAV market was valued at $129 million in 2020 and is expected to grow to $143 million this year and reach $455 million by 2028, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 18 percent amount. Companies are sure to capitalize on this growth by expanding their solutions, including YellowScan, which recently announced Voyager, a long-range Lidar solution for drones.
just this month A new partnership has been announced Provide comprehensive support to these projects through SPH. engineering sciences And plan your trips UgCS The software is integrated with Green Valley International Data processing Leader 360 program.
This can be very important for users looking for comprehensive software to support their large-scale drone survey projects. With UgCS, users can plan their tours in advance in the program to ensure that all the territory they want to cover is checked. There are many different types of trips that can be planned for both photogrammetry and lidar trips with features that help with conventional and vertical surveys. The software, which also includes live video, is also compatible with almost all popular LiDAR platforms, including brands such as YellowScan, DJI, RIEGL and more.
Meanwhile, once that trip is complete, users can turn to GreenValley’s LiDAR360 platform to process the captured data. With the framework, users can efficiently interact with and manipulate lidar point cloud data – more than 300 GB of lidar data at a time – according to their needs, the software also includes data management, automatic ribbon alignment and point cloud classification. which includes over 10 peer-reviewed algorithms to ensure maximum accuracy.
This new partnership should provide many use cases between the two manufacturer inspectors. The LiDAR360 Framework has a few different specific applications, including forestry, mining, power lines, utilities, and terrain. Along with plenty of customization options for trip planning with UgCS, including the aforementioned vertical bar as well as both bars – especially useful with the LiDAR360 Powerline app – and an area with the ability to pre-plan turns and loop turns on the fly.
SPH. engineering sciences Ltd. in 2013 It is based in Latvia, but currently has a global customer base and networks covering more than 150 countries worldwide. The main activities of the UAV software solution and integration service provider company are the aforementioned UgCS systems, integrated UgCS systems with sensors from different manufacturers, UAV display software, as well as the consulting and development business line.
GreenValley International has a large-scale business model and is headquartered in Berkeley, California. Founded in 2013, it provides hardware and software solutions for surveyors and describes itself as “integrated solutions for forestry, topographic surveying, emergency response, autonomous driving and vegetation management for electric utilities, among many other industries and sectors”. in addition to data processing software, they have several Hardware systemswith options for aerial and ground scanning.
As the popularity and use of drone scanning in the industry continues to grow, users will continue to look for more comprehensive solutions. This partnership between SPH and GreenValley appears to be moving in that direction.
