SimActive Software Used to Colorize Lidar

Montreal, Canada, February 21st, 2023 – SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, announces the use of its lidar point cloud colorization capabilities by users of multi-sensor systems developed by LiDARUSA. SimActive’s Correlator3D™ software allows to profit from imagery and lidar data in a complimentary fashion.

Colorized Lidar Point Cloud

Lidar point clouds are first imported in Correlator3D™, to which the collected imagery is automatically registered.  The lidar data are used as control for the registration process.  Each lidar point is then colorized using the images.
