LAS Sample Files: High-Density Point Clouds from UltraCam Aerial Imagery

Those attending the ASPRS 2012 conference in Sacramento next week will have the opportunity to visit us in our booth to learn more about the UltraCam Eagle “ultra-large” format digital aerial camera system and the features coming with UltraMap 3.0, scheduled for release this summer (2012). We recently held a webcast that presented these new capabilities that you can watch “On Demand” from our Events page of the UltraCam website. “Lidar without lasers,” Professional Surveyor editor Jeff Salmon called it in his write-up summary of 2012 UltraCam User Group meeting (North America).

I am pleased to share with you today that we now have sample LAS files of point clouds generated from UltraCam aerial imagery using the processing algorithms that are coming with the release of UltraMap 3.0. The files are for the data you see pictured in this post (and more) which were captured over Graz, Austria using an UltraCamXp at a ground sample distance 5cm and 80/60 overlap. Additional specs for each:

Rathaus.las: 9.603.735 points (~2.3 points per pixel, about 920 points/sq meter)Kirche.las: 14.442.499 points (~3.5 points per pixel, about 1400 points/sq meter)

Interested in seeing them? Just contact your UltraCam sales representative and we’ll point you to a FTP site where you can download the files.
