GREAT DATA IN.
BETTER DECISIONS OUT.

RELIABLE AND ACCURATE SURVEY EQUIPMENT IS
IMPORTANT, AND SO IS GREAT DATA PROCESSING SOFTWARE.

Microdrones is making it easy for professionals to get started with everything needed to use
drones for complex surveying work.

mdInfinity is a powerful ecosystem that will enable you to quickly and efficiently process geospatial data, including Trajectory Processing, Georeferencing, Precision Enhancement and Boresight Calibration with convenient payment options.

In addition mdInfinity Custom Services offers Strip Adjustment, Point Colorization and FORMap services on demand.

DATA PROCESSING MODULES

All modules below are compatible with mdLiDAR survey equipment.
Trajectory Processing and FORMap are compatible with mdMapper survey equipment.

TRAJECTORY PROCESSING

Improve the accuracy of the position and attitude of sensor collected during the flight.

The Trajectory Processing module is a user friendly workflow for users to process raw GNSS data (with or without base station), hybridize IMU and GNSS data to produce a smooth trajectory file and export it as a EO/sbet files in the desired coordinate system.

Users can validate the trajectory parameters before processing and obtain different types of EO files depending on the software they will use afterwards.

GEOREFERENCING

Anchor geographic coordinates to every point of your pointcloud.

Georeferencing transforms the raw data from the LiDAR (range and bearing angles), the GNSS and IMU (orientation and positioning) to 3D point cloud and associated data.

With the specifications of the raw data, Microdrones produces a georeferenced point cloud in geographic coordinates without any geodetic distortion, or in a local mapping frame specified by the user.

BORESIGHT CALIBRATION

Correct boresight misalignment of your specific product. 

Calibration tackles the issue of the alignment of the LiDAR and the IMU body frames.

While a data set may seem clear at high-scale, LiDAR to IMU boresight angles may produce some inconsistency in the data set.

With the Microdrones LIBAC (LiDAR -IMU Boresight Automatic Calibration) tool, the misalignment is computed automatically and boresight angles can be applied to georeference the data set without any boresight bias.

STRIP ADJUSTMENT

Reinforce the consistency between LiDAR survey strips.

The strip adjustment module is used to resolve misalignments that may exist between individual lidar strips and its overlapping neighbor. Even with a well calibrated system, there are navigation errors present due to the uncertainties inherent to an inertial navigations system. Just like the LiDAR sensor, the IMU and GNSS receiver have limitations to the precision that they can achieve. Fortunately, an estimation of these errors can be accounted for and addressed through the strip adjustment processes.

PRECISION ENHANCEMENT

Remove outliers and reduce the noise level of your point clouds.

Precision enhancement solves the problem of outlier rejection and denoising in a unified environment.

Microdrones outlier rejection is based on density and morphology which enable the user to isolate points belonging to relevant structures. (e.g. poles, cables)

The Microdrones denoising module reduces the noise level while preserving edges and irregular features in the point cloud.

POINT CLOUD DIRECT COLORIZATION

Colorize a point cloud without referring to a full photogrammetric process by managing occlusions.

Microdrones point cloud colorization is done after the LiDAR point cloud generation, without the need of a full prior photogrammetric process.

Occlusions in the point cloud are colorized by considering only the relevant part of the point cloud.

GROUND CLASSIFICATION

Segment bare- Earth points from objects and vegetation in 3D point clouds collected by LiDAR or photogrammetry.

The mdInfinity Ground classification tool is based on a combination of several algorithms, including like frontier point analysis, segmentation, TIN densification.

As such, it takes benefits of each of these methods and is able to classify ground points in very challenging environments.

In particular, steep slope cliffs are correctly classified which enhance the resolution of ground Digital Terrain Models in proving more true positive ground points than other approaches.

FORMAP

Generate an orthomosaic and dense point cloud from photogrammetric survey data.

FORMap implements a rapid and comprehensive photogrammetric workflow to transform images and navigation data in an orthomosaic and a dense point cloud.

The main feature of FORMap is a fast response time (2-4 sec/image) to produce results in a few minutes after drone landing.

Orthomosaic produced by FORMap are geometrically consistent and without distortion.
