SiteScan Data Collection

On September 14th and 15th, we hosted four live events showcasing 3DR’s drone technology and Site Scan software.   Here is the data that we collected during the event at our Walnut Creek location.  We are providing multiple links because SiteScan provides multiple output formats, or deliverables, for use in various Autodesk products:

Infraworks 360 (in browser viewing)

CAD Masters WC – Infraworks 360

Civil 3D Surface (download, unzip, and open “Surface Only- CMI WC – 2016.dwg” in Civil 3D)

Note: This surface was originally created using a Civil 3D Point Cloud from a .las file created by SiteScan (221,280 points). The .las file does not contain classification for vegetation or ground levels, but does classify each image as a new classification. The surface was then saved as a .xml for sharing.
