The AP3500 airborne LiDAR system is a high-altitude airborne LiDAR device developed to meet the needs of China’s mountainous landforms and efficient aerial survey operations. It can provide unique multi-echo measurement data, which means one laser can measure the distance of multiple levels of targets. This is a significant feature for the investigation of forests and vegetation and also can be widely used for various high-efficiency, high-precision 3D data collection of power line patrols, 3D city information modeling, cadastral survey, deformation monitoring, water conservancy survey, disaster assessment applications in the field of measurement.
In the software design process, SureStar also considered the user later uses of the airborne integrated system. The control software Win-Nav matched with E + AP can easily control the entire integrated system, including GPS and IMU, and even the camera. Its preprocessing software UI-AP can perform fast and accurate data preprocessing on track data and scan data to form a point cloud.
