LP360 Drone and Geospatial Software Adds Convenience and Benefits of the Cloud

Stream, PowerSearch, and Organize LiDAR Data in the New LP360 Cloud From GeoCue

From the convenience of his office, Frank Darmayan, CEO of GeoCue, is chatting online with team members scattered across the U.S., Europe, and Latin America. Certainly, this is unremarkable in an age where online collaboration is more common than face-to-face meetings. So, why the interest?

Frank and his team are simultaneously reviewing a massive point cloud dataset of nearly 100GB hosted in LP360 Cloud, in real-time, within the LP360 Desktop software. Frank explains, “In the past, everyone would have to download this entire dataset and store it locally on their hard drive before a meeting. Now, one of the coolest features of LP360 is online streaming between LP360 Cloud and LP360 Desktop. The software intelligently streams only the data needed for the section of the project you are working with.”

The LP360 Cloud Workflow allows for multiple uses to stream large data sets directly from LP360 cloud without having to download the LAS File.

In addition to live streaming point clouds, LP360 Cloud allows users to search for their data geographically and by using their metadata. “It’s a huge time saver,” adds Vivien Heriard-Dubreuil, CEO of GeoCue parent company mdGroup. “And that is only the beginning. I’m most excited about our new PowerSearch functionality in LP360 Cloud. Imagine being able to do a quick search for any data collected on a specific geolocated point, including metadata? Our new PowerSearch does just that. It’s like having a virtual personal assistant to scrub through all your cloud files to find what you need for a project.”

LP360 Cloud PowerSearch allows users to draw a shape on a map and find geospatial and meta data for every point collected across multiple projects and time. You can even search geospatial files by metadata.

Vincent Legrand, VP of Sales, knows from experience that these new features will appeal to the market and adds, “We build LP360 around customer needs. We’re offering an ever-growing collection of cloud-based software tools that empower users to better store, manage, share, and search their geospatial data while collaborating in more efficient and effective ways. Plus, we offer streamlined administrative tools for managing licenses and making payments. Customers see how we are building the software around their requests, and they continue to expand with us.”

 LP360 Cloud Storage provides robust, secure solutions for storing geospatial data in the cloud. In addition, new features make it easier than ever to administer and manage licenses and users.
