Looking for options and opinions

Post by M_B_S » Mon Jan 14, 2019 4:07 pm

Good morning to all.
my name is Max and our company currently purchased a drone and a lidar to do, for now, topographic surveys for our clients (50+/- acre sites). We use Inertial Explorer 8.70 & ScanLook PC to reduce lidar data and create LAS / LAZ files. We use Global Mapper and a little bit of Carlson Point cloud to work with LAZ and LAS files to create our contour data and or surfaces. each software has good and some not so good things about it. I have a lot to learn about both and slowly getting better, but once again, a lot to learn. with that said, I am looking for opinions on what software is better and very user friendly, that can help me to continue to do the same work but also, looking ahead, being able to extract hard surfaces (i.e. curb lines, road striping, breaklines, etc.) In the office we use C3D to do engineering work and C3D and Carlson for surveying work.
Open to anything that would help me do the following:
1. easy processing
2. software that can handle large projects and help me to deliver great product to client and our engineering department
3. customer support that actually have knowledgeable product support folks and not salesmen.

thank you all in advance.

Welcome to the forum. I might be able to give you some information based on what we use.... What kind of drone and LiDAR unit did you purchase?
