DataDoors for LiDAR

LiDAR Hosting & Processing in the Cloud

  • Do you spend valuble time locating and preparing LAS files, orthomosaics and derivative products for your projects?
  • Is your LiDAR data scattered across multiple hard drives and other network repositories?
  • Are your customers, analysts or other stakeholders in multiple locations?
  • Would you like to capture revenue from past LiDAR data collections?

The exponential growth in routinely-collected LiDAR data presents unprecedented data management challenges for both data collection vendors and end-user organizations. DataDoors – the first and most widely-used web-based geospatial data management platform – now features robust support for LiDAR management, processing and distribution in the cloud.

Adding to its already valuable LiDAR archive management functionality, DataDoors now provides the ability to extract, combine, reproject, tile and derive interpreted content surfaces from one or multiple LiDAR LAS files. Along with these new capabilities, derivative products such as DSM, DTM, contours and intensity images, can be delivered from DataDoors as a finished product or as a hosted data stream with a range of endpoints optimized for your GIS and CAD applications. This allows end-users the advantage of automatically processing LiDAR to standard derivative products without having to store, host or manage the product locally.
