VRMesh Survey

A next-generation solution for automatic point cloud classification and feature extraction. It automatically classifies vegetation, building roofs, and ground points in LiDAR data or from UAV images. 99% classification jobs can be automatically done with high accuracy. It can also automatically detect building footprints, powerlines, poles, tree crowns, curbs and railways in point clouds. A lite version of VRMesh Survey is available for users who need the classification functions only.

Unlike traditional LiDAR data processing workflows that have to extract ground points first before classifying vegetation and buildings, the first fundamental step in VRMesh Survey is to detect vegetation. The major benefit of our workflow is its unique ability to automatically classify point clouds under extreme variations in terrain, no matter the data is gathered from steep slopes covered with dense vegetation or areas where there is very few ground points available.

Features and Benefits

  • Automatically extract ground points on steep slops

  • Automatically detect hidden man-made structures

  • Automatically extract building footprints from dense urban areas

  • Automatically extract powerlines/poles/tree crowns/railways

  • Quickly pick a line along a ridge, railway, powerline, road markings, etc.

  • Provide powerline detection and clearance analysis tools

  • Provide manual classification tools in a cross-section view

  • Generate grid surface and export to Esri ASCII Grids

  • Automatic registration

  • Accurate inspection and measurements
