March 03, 2008 -- Toronto, Canada – Optech Incorporated, a manufacturer of advanced
lidar survey instruments, announced today that Maptek has enabled
direct file import functionality of ILRIS-3D open format IXF point
cloud data into their I-Site Studio product.
ILRIS-3D is a fully portable, laser-based ranging and imaging system for the commercial survey, engineering, mining and industrial markets. A compact and highly integrated instrument with digital image capture and sophisticated software tools, ILRIS-3D is a 21st-century solution that addresses the needs of commercial users.
Maptek I-Site Studio offers an impressive range of software tools developed specifically for laser scan data processing. Large point datasets can be efficiently interrogated, modeled and manipulated on a desktop PC or field laptop.
“With the growing number of point cloud visualization and processing tools now available, it is imperative to collaborate with industry leaders such as I-Site Studio when using the scanner with the largest dynamic range on the market. We created the IXF file format as an open format to support this kind of development,” says Dave Adams, Product Manager, Industrial and 3D Imaging Division.
