In the SYSSIFOSS project, we are investigating how we can take advantage of virtual laser scanning (VLS), the simulation of laser scanning in a computer environment, in forestry applications. These applications include survey planning and optimization, sensitivity analyses, and algorithm development. For example, VLS may be used to investigate the influence of different sensor and [...]

HELIOS++ v1.0.6 released

We are proud to present the newest HELIOS++ release, v1.0.6, with numerous bugfixes and support for the unique LiVOX scan pattern (using Risley prisms - the color indicates point indices and increases from blue to red):

Furthermore, the Easter bunny left some Easter eggs in the ‘toyblocks’ scene:

You can find the changlelog for the new release [...]

On 1st March 2021, the Swiss Federal Office of Topography (SwissTopo) released all official geodata according to the principles of “Open Government Data (OGD)”. With this step, Swisstopo is making large volumes of high quality geodata freely accessible. We are most excited about the 3D data, which includes digital surface models, digital terrain models and [...]

Members of the 3DGeo research group were recently taking advantage of the good weather to acquire some more data within the DFG-funded project SYSSIFOSS. We packed the drone and the RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV laser scanner, and drove to the forest near Bretten where 8 of our plots are located. In four days and 16 flights we [...]

On Tuesday, 25.02.2020, the 3DGeo group and the SYSSIFOSS project partner from KIT organised a collaborative data processing event. 24 participants spent 6 hours (10:00-16:00) extracting individual trees from airborne LiDAR forest point clouds.
In the SYSSIFOSS project, the segmented 3D tree models are required to simulate 3D forest stands when combined [...]
