If you are using Laser Scanners or Unmanned Aerial Systems (Drones) or collect and process LiDAR, Sonar or simply want to work with large datasets - LSS Vista with Point Clouds might be the solution for you.

For a list of LSS Vista capabilities, please visit that product page. All we are doing here is listing the main additional benefits of Point Clouds.

Each dongle allows one user access to the software at a time. The software can be installed on as many computers as you require. Simply move the dongle around, or 'share' it across your network. If more than one person needs access at the same time, then why not purchase additional dongles, or save money and order a multiple-user dongle.

All prices are for a 12 month licence and include technical support and software updates.

LSS 3D VisionTM - Point Cloud and LSS Survey viewer

At the heart of LSS Vista with Point Clouds is LSS 3D Vision, a separate application which, when connected to a suitably licensed copy of LSS, will act as a powerful 3D digitiser (see above). However, in standalone mode it is an application you can give to your client, together with your data so that they can view, but not amend. Because it is dongle-free and will allow Licensed LSS users to create new Point Cloud databases, why not run it on another computer and produce Point Clouds without tying up an LSS computer.

Look at what LSS 3D Vision can do, for free!

  • Display an LSS survey in 3D

  • Display a Point Cloud in 3D

  • Query coordinates and distances

  • View vertical and horizontal slices

  • Distribute it to clients dongle-free

  • Windows 32bit and 64bit platforms supported

  • Minimum OpenGL v4.0 graphics required

  • Vertical and horizontal heatmaps (show deviation from vertical or horizontal planes)
