Boost Productivity with LP360 Cloud: Explore the Power of Automatic Ground Classification

SIMPLIFY Ground classification with the Power of LP360 Cloud  

One of the standout features of LP360 Cloud's Automatic Ground Classification is its utilization of cloud computing power. This innovation allows users to offload the computationally intensive task of ground classification to the cloud, freeing up local workstations for other processing tasks. This means you can simultaneously conduct cycle processing, contour generation, and more, without compromising the capabilities of your desktop.

The process is now simplified, making ground classification easily accessible without the need for a large, powerful desktop. Experience the speed and accessibility of geospatial data processing tasks enhanced by the cloud. Martin Flood, our VP of Special Projects, walks you through this groundbreaking feature in an informative workflow video, demonstrating the power and simplicity of LP360 Cloud's Automatic Ground Classification.

Automatic Ground Classification in LP360 Cloud

The above tutorial guides you through the straightforward process of utilizing LP360 Cloud's Automatic Ground Classification feature.

Uploading Your Data

The first step is to upload your .las data directly from the LP360 desktop to your cloud account. Whether you're a TrueView or Microdrones user or working with data from other sources, the process remains the same. Once your cycle processing is complete, upload your data seamlessly using the easy-to-use interface.

Check the destination folder in your LP360 Cloud account to confirm the successful upload. This not only facilitates ground classification but also serves as an efficient way to store, manage, and organize your data in the cloud.

Setting Up Ground Classification

Navigate to the Cloud Ribbon, select the data you uploaded, and choose the Ground Classification task from the interface. The setup is straightforward – provide a task name and answer a set of prompts to define the terrain type, point cloud thickness, building size, and maximum terrain slope. These parameters ensure the algorithm is tailored to your specific dataset.

Click continue, review the parameters, and initiate the ground classification process by clicking process. The job runs entirely in the cloud, freeing you to focus on other tasks on your desktop while LP360 Cloud handles the heavy lifting.

Maximizing Efficiency

The cloud-based ground classification in LP360 builds upon 15 years of proven algorithms used in the desktop version. Advanced features such as Edge Point analysis, region segmenting, and enhanced densification improve classification results. Importantly, the cloud classification allows you to scale your work easily, running multiple ground classifications simultaneously without the need for additional local machines.

Let the Cloud do the Work

LP360 Cloud's Automatic Ground Classification feature marks a significant leap in geospatial data processing efficiency. By harnessing the power of cloud computing, users can seamlessly conduct ground classification tasks, freeing up their desktops for other essential processing activities. The straightforward setup and advanced features make it accessible to users of all levels, eliminating the need for extensive knowledge of ground classification algorithms.
