    GIS News - LiDAR
    Written by SIS   
    24 January 2012


    Starkville, Miss., 23, January 2012 – Spatial Information Solutions, Inc (SIS) is in Denver, CO this week attending the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF). SIS released LiDAR Testing Extension (LTE) plug in for Topo Analyst early this week, and it will be shown in person for the first time this week at ILMF. If you would like to see it, contact Chuck O’Hara at 662-418-3060 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .

    As a plug in to Topo Analyst, LTE automates testing of LiDAR data and products across the project life cycle. LTE delivers powerful analytical capabilities to perform in-depth testing of LiDAR data and products from checking completeness of swath coverage to correctness of calibrated swath data to accuracy, compliance, and consistency of final tiled LAS and DEM data products.

    Topo Analyst 1.0, released in summer of 2011, delivers the same streamlined workflow, ease of use, and readily understood results you expect from SIS software. Topo Analyst lets you test LiDAR point cloud data, DEM data products, and other raster elevation data (such as IFSAR). With Topo Analyst, you can make sure you are producing, buying, or using data that meet your specifications and mapping needs. Topo Analyst gives producers, customers, and users the ability to verify accuracy and quality with the following benefits:

    Automatically verify the accuracy of elevation data

    Evaluate LiDAR LAS point-cloud data as well as raster DEMs

    Comprehensively test elevation uncertainty by land cover types

    Input tile layers and evaluate enormous data sets

    Results compliant with LiDAR accuracy standards

    For more information about Topo Analyst, a software review was published in Professional Surveyor and is available to read at http://spatialis.com/products/topo/pdf/SIS_PSM_NOV2011.pdf.

    See Chuck at ILMF about adding both of these affordable software solutions to your set of tools. Both can be purchased for under $3,000.00.

    If you will not be attending the forum and would like to schedule a webinar in the near future to see the features and benefits of LTE or other products offered by SIS, please email Leslie O’Hara at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or feel free to contact us at 662-323-0202.
