Routescene at GeoWeek 2020

Posted on February 10, 2020 in ,

Routescene will be exhibiting at GeoWeek 2020 in Washington DC, March 23-25th. GeoWeek includes two conferences – International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF) 2020 and American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) annual conference.

Routescene Inc exhibiting last year at ILMF 2019

Come and meet with the Routescene team (Booth 315) to learn about the latest developments of the Routescene UAV LiDAR System and LidarViewer Pro software.

Routescene will be promoted across the following 7 conference technical and poster sessions:

3. UAV LiDAR Best Practice

Speaker: Gert Riermersma, Routescene Inc

Wednesday 25th March 2020, 10:30 to 10:45, Room 209B
ASPRS 2020 technical session

Gert has a wealth of experience using LiDAR since 2008 and LiDAR on UAVs since 2013. As CTO and founder of Routescene and a qualified land & hydrographic surveyor, Gert’s expertise and 30 years international experience have informed the design and manufacture of Routescene’s LiDAR system.

This 15 minute presentation covers the key areas of best practice when using LiDAR on UAVs. Fundamental to using the Routescene UAV LiDAR system is a carefully thought through workflow – which spans the entire utilisation of the solution – from survey and project planning, data acquisition, data processing to the final outputs or “actionable information”. Gert will highlight the best practice to implement at each step in this workflow to ensure the best possible outcomes each time.

  • Understanding your clients requirements and setting expectations, remembering that a huge amount of data can be collected.
  • Considering the end result and the complete workflow before you begin.
  • Understanding accuracy and how equipment limitations can restrict what can be achieved.
  • How absolute accuracy is derived.
  • Flight planning and Quality Assurance (QA), including ground control points and checklist before take-off to ensure the quality of the data collected.
  • Managing the data and post-processing.
  • Uploading data, use of filters and advantages of the Bare Earth tool.
  • Importing final data into other software packages.

Case studies will be referenced, including Sand Canyon in Colorado, USA and Alderney in the Channel Islands, UK, to illustrate the benefits of implementing best practice and the direct impact on results.
