(source: http://dominoc925.blogspot.com/) The height accuracy of the collected LiDAR data can be verified by comparing with independently surveyed ground control points on hard, flat, open surfaces. It is essentially just calculating the height differences for all the control points and then determining the height root mean squared error (RMSE) or differences. Most LiDAR processing software have theContinue reading “Using Excel to calculate the RMSE for LiDAR vertical ground control points”

Data acquisition: How do I know if this river is been well acquired?
I’ve already entered my river but my imagery was in 2D so… was it well acquired?… First of all, I import my shape (shp) file into Global Mapper (what a great sofware!) and export my vector file as a KML. Import my river.kml file into my brand new Google Earth 5.2 or just double-click itContinue reading “Data acquisition: How do I know if this river is been well acquired?”

GIS+Architectural scenaries. Awesome!
Even from scratch or from dgn/dxf vectorial format’s contour lines you create your own scenario. Then import your model previously created using Sketch-up (this time i used google’s 3d warehouse, thank you Dilbert). Stamp your house using sketch-up sandbox tools. Then fur your scenario as if it was grass… A little of photoshop like clouds andContinue reading “GIS+Architectural scenaries. Awesome!”
Map24.com; My favorite route planner!
My very good friend Fernando (a spanish/english like friend of mine:-)) introduced me this magnificent route planner he was using at that moment (three years ago!!!!)… map24.com had a very interesting 3D engine, very easy to use and very reliable… I’ve been using it since but it has never been one of the most famousContinue reading “Map24.com; My favorite route planner!”
