Esri UC 2016 to See the Latest GIS Collection Tools from Teledyne Optech

June 20, 2016 Teledyne Optech is pleased to announce that it will present the latest lidar and imaging solutions at the Esri 2016 User Conference in San Diego, CA. GIS professionals from around the world are invited to see the full spectrum of remote sensing technologies on June 28-30 at booth 2426.

The star of the show is the new Optech Eclipse, an airborne collection system that radically reduces surveying costs by eliminating the need for an in-air operator. Instead, the pilot can turn on the Eclipses eye-safe lidar and digital metric camera with a single button. This unique approach lowers the bar to collecting geo-referenced point clouds and imagery with Teledyne Optechs industry-leading accuracy and precision.

Visitors can also learn how to bridge the gap between water and land with the multispectral Optech Titan airborne lidar, which provides depth information at >15 pts/m2 for high-resolution mapping of complex water bodies, and captures 3D multispectral data day or night for improved target classification. Those interested in dedicated land surveying can hear about the Optech Galaxy, which improves efficiency by up to 40% in rugged terrain by using its unique SwathTRAK technology to maintain a constant swath width on the ground.

GIS professionals will also be interested to learn about several new and upcoming product advances in ground-based lidar systems. The Optech Lynx now comes in three models, from the economical mapping-grade Lynx MG to the mid-range Lynx SG-S, and the high-powered Lynx SG. Teledyne Optech has recently upgraded the SG-S and SG with industry-leading scanner technology that creates 300 to 600 lines/sec respectively, resulting in evenly spaced point cloud data even when surveying at highway speeds.

All of these products are joined together by the Optech LMS, a highly automated workflow that co-processes lidar and camera data to maximize their accuracy, converts data to the desired reference frame using the Blue Marble GeoCalc SDK, and outputs data for direct ingestion by popular third-party software tools.
