Classified point cloud
A laser point cloud is a versatile product that can be classified in various ways. One example of a common product is a ground classified point cloud to form the basis of an accurate terrain model. More extensive classification can be tailored to specific client requests to include classification of for example buildings, bridges, snow, vegetation, overhead power lines, electrical installations, large rocks, and water.
The point cloud can then be used for various analyses, such as analysing trees that may potentially fall on power lines, road surface analysis, and forest analysis. A classified point cloud can also be used for different kinds of modelling.
The classification itself is firstly done automatically in special software, followed by manual editing and quality control to ensure the best quality possible.
