Process and visualize Hovermap point clouds
Emesent Aura allows the processing and visualization of scans in one intuitive platform, streamlining the way Hovermap users process, view, and analyze point clouds for faster insights and improved decision-making.
The latest version supports Emesent’s recently released Handheld 360 Image Kit, aligning and registering panoramic images with their related point clouds for enhanced visual context.
Aura also supports RTK (Real-time Kinematics), automating high-accuracy georeferencing and drift-correction for Hovermap scans on DJI’s M300 drone. This enables the delivery of fast, accurate and precise above ground drone scans on demand, without the need to lay out and georeference ground control points. Aura intelligently leverages both RTK and SLAM to optimize results.
Aura software comes bundled with all Hovermaps.
Why use Aura?
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.
Yes. Emesent offers a Handheld 360 Image Kit that attaches directly to the Hovermap unit. 360-degree images and 3D LiDAR data can then be captured at the same time, with the location of images registered automatically in relation to the point cloud. Using data processing software Aura, image orientation is selected automatically, ensuring no calibration is required. Contact us to find out more.
