Terrestrial laser scanning data processing in Agisoft Metashape
Agisoft Metashape 1.7 offers functionality to integrate terrestrial laser scanning data in photogrammetric processing workflow. Simultaneous adjustment of both laser scanner and camera positions allows to combine LiDAR and photogrammetric depth maps, which enables to benefit from LiDAR technology for interiors and photogrammetry for exteriors and photorealistic textures. Mission planning tool enables to perform detailed survey session in automatic mode for high resolution model reconstruction of complex buildings. Automatic powerlines detection feature allows to perform large-scale powerlines inspection projects without need to invest in LiDAR equipment. The results in a form of a 3D polyline model for every wire can be exported for documentation and analysis in industry-specific tools or used for obstacle avoidance by mission planning algorithm within Metashape.
