Evolving the Capabilities of LiDAR

Evolving the Capabilities of LiDAR

With the introduction of the RECON series, Phoenix LiDAR Systems is removing barriers to widespread LiDAR remote sensing adoption. The RECON series combines low-cost hardware with Phoenix LiDAR Systems industry leading software, LiDARMill, and is empowering a new generation of professionals like never before.

The RECON series features higher accuracies than competing products (that are based on Applanix or DJI navigation systems), while offering extremely simple, automated post-processing solutions to extract maximum value from each dataset.

Utilizing the LiDARMill online, automated processing platform, raw datasets can be imported straight from a USB drive, with reference and optional ground control data seamlessly integrated. Simple wizards enable advanced processing options like trajectory optimization, LiDAR and camera calibration, AI classification, smart decimation and the creation of high-quality deliverables (contours, DTM/DSM/CHM, pointcloud tiling etc.). A fully registered, colorized pointcloud is produced that is accurate in both relative and absolute terms. Project reports then summarize project performance and verify system accuracy.

Phoenix Lidar Systems is committed to designing the world’s most advanced, complete LiDAR solutions. With the RECON + LiDARMill combination, users can deploy a simple toolkit that is able to derive accurate and reliable datasets in a matter of hours. Powerful, affordable, and comprehensive…the RECON series by Phoenix Lidar Systems is now available, and sure to disrupt the remote sensing industry.

High Performance LiDAR with Aerial Surveying

In the July 2021 Phoenix LiDAR Systems webinar, Senior Geomatics Engineer Kory Kellum discussed aerial surveys with high-performance LiDAR technology. Phoenix LiDAR Systems, based in Austin, Texas, specializes in custom UAV LiDAR solutions. The webinar highlighted the practical applications of UAV-based LiDAR in surveying and engineering through insights from Pape-Dawson Engineers, Angela Livingston, and David Trotter. They shared their use of the Phoenix Ranger with the VUX1 UAV scanner, emphasizing benefits like high-resolution data, speed, vegetation penetration, and access to difficult sites.

The webinar covered workflows from site assessment to data processing, showcasing detailed and accurate point clouds for extracting data products like contours and infrastructure details. Examples included mapping a railroad bridge and a riverbank. The Q&A session addressed flight planning, check shots under canopies, and data processing software.
