Data Processing DELIVERABLES
Full Resolution Orthophoto (TIF)
A full-resolution orthophoto in GeoTiff (.tif) format, with all geolocation data embedded into the file. This is orthophoto is the highest resolution, highest accuracy 2D data that can be created from your drone imagery. The file is often extremely large and is typically not able to be imported into CAD software. That is why we also create a CAD-friendly orthophoto with each project.
Full Resolution DSM (TIF)
A full-resolution Digital Surface Model (DSM) in GeoTiff (.tif) format, with all geolocation data embedded into the file. This is DSM is the highest resolution, highest accuracy DSM data that can be created from your drone imagery. The file is often extremely large and is typically not able to be imported into CAD software. This is a 2.5 dimension raster file, where every X/Y coordinate will have only a single Z elevation point.
Full Resolution Point Cloud (LAS)
A full-resolution point cloud in LAS (.las) file format. The point cloud is typically the most accurate, rich, and high-resolution data available from photogrammetry. However, point cloud files are also notoriously difficult to work with and are not recommended for those unfamiliar with working in 3D point cloud software. The point cloud file is often extremely large and is typically not able to be imported into CAD software.
CAD-Friendly Orthophoto (TIF)
Because the full resolution orthophoto is typically too large to be easily imported into CAD, Aerotas creates a CAD-friendly orthophoto optimized for use in an AutoCAD or Civil3D environment. This orthophoto uses specialized compression algorithms to ensure easy importation into CAD, with minimal loss in resolution. The CAD-friendly Orthophoto is perfect for printing, sharing, or adding context to a project in CAD.
CAD-Friendly World File (TFW)
The CAD-friendly orthophoto also comes with a world file (.tfw) that includes all of the geolocation data needed to properly import the CAD-friendly orthophoto into various CAD softwares.
All of the deliverables of Photogrammetry
DWG Package containing
Drafted Linework (Points & Polylines)
Aerotas Linework includes all of the deliverables that come with Photogrammetry, in addition to our professionally drafted CAD linework. Our CAD linework is delivered by default in a zipped AutoCAD DWG (.dwg) package. Included in that dwg package is all of the points and polylines that our drafters have created, along with a TIN surface created from those points and polylines, and contours from that TIN surface. For more details about what is included, please check out our linework specifications.
