Frequently Asked Questions
No matter how dense your point clouds or complex your 3D structures are, Emesent Aura allows you to process, view, clean, edit, and take measurements from Emesent Hovermap point clouds in a single streamlined application. Aura lets you automate previously manual and error-prone tasks to improve the quality of analysis and optimise scanning results for better decision-making. Aura excels at displaying the dense, highly detailed point clouds created by Hovermap, even for extremely large datasets featuring billions of individual points.
Emesent Aura’s Automated Ground Control enhances the capabilities of SLAM-based mapping. During processing, Automated Ground Control detects the reflective ground control targets and use these to georeference the point cloud while improving accuracy. Automated Ground Control is an Emesent Aura extension that requires an additional license. Emesent Ground Control targets (sold separately) are required in use with Automated Ground Control. Contact us for more information.
Emesent Aura’s Colorization offers a new dimension of reality capture to 3D point clouds for deeper environmental insights, providing additional context, more clarity and heightened realism. Colorization is an Emesent Aura extension that requires an additional license. You will also need a rugged action camera attached to your Hovermap. Contact us for more information.
Yes. Hovermap data capture combined with Aura’s RTK processing optimizes results by intelligently leveraging both RTK and SLAM to ensure the most reliable point clouds. RTK requires a compatible drone and additional software license to activate. Contact us for more information.
Currently, Emesent Aura’s RTK supports Hovermap scans on the DJI M300 drone.
