On the GIScience GITHub, two new tools are now available:
The Heidelberg LiDAR Operations Simulator HELIOS is a software package for interactive real-time simulation and visualization of terrestrial, mobile and airborne laser scanning surveys.
Own virtual scenes can be generated by combining for example terrain models with other objects (buildings, vegetation). Own scan positions as well as [...]
