Caveatron PC Software

For downloading and post-processing data files.



Post-processes the Caveatron LIDAR scan files and survey files to produce a point cloud. It allows the user to review each scan, remove erroneous rangefinder data, and adjust processing and filtering parameters. The survey data can be reviewed for loop closure and absolute coordinates set for a chosen reference station. The output files are in plain text coordinate format with normal vectors and are compatible with many point cloud viewers.
