TopoDOT® offers an extensive suite of tools for extracting features from point cloud data. Highly automated tools quickly and accurately extract topography break lines, road surfaces, bare earth and much more. Buildings, bridges and other structural 3D models are extracted quickly. GIS assets are quickly identified, located and extracted along a transportation corridor. TopoDOT CAD and GIS deliverables are formatted to seamlessly feed downstream design, engineering, construction and GIS operations. Every TopoDOT workflow balances the highest levels of automation with requirements for quality and reliability.
Build your own custom profile template, save it to your library, and use it to automatically extract break lines. Quickly extract accurate break lines from walls, curbs, barriers—any profile in your point cloud data.
Smart cells allow you to build break line models, save them to a library, and snap them into your model. Ramp, driveway, inlet, and other complex models are accurately extracted in seconds.
An intuitive and easy interface allows you to isolate stripe data based on intensity. Extract long 3D corridor stripe vectors automatically.
Define the rail template that matches your data and automatically extract each rail polyline--inside rail, center rail, or both. Accurately extract long rail corridors in seconds!
Automatically extract cross section measurements orthogonal to a road alignment. It’s never necessary to classify or clean data prior to extraction!
Trees, bushes, equipment, cars, people in your point cloud data? Extract a bare earth model in seconds! – And again, it’s never necessary to classify or clean data!
Automatically locate potential signs, power poles, light poles, etc. Tag each with metadata from your custom schema and click “accept” to place the symbol. Export assets as an ESRI shape file!
Build your own custom profile template, save them to a library and use it to automatically extract guard rails, fences, walls -- and linear asset in your point cloud data.
Quickly construct your 3D bridge model the way it was designed. Identify the design profile, model it and extrude—it’s that easy!
Quickly extract complex beam structures by defining a cross-section, saving to a library and then selecting the data. Extract the perfect beam or include all camber, distortions or rotations—your choice!
Take a horizontal cross section of your building data in seconds. Then use the automatic smart line tool to quickly extract accurate building footprints.
Quickly construct your 3D bridge model the way it was designed. Identify the right profile, model it, and extrude—it’s that easy!
Extract vertical / horizontal clearances in seconds. From simple vertical / horizontal clearances to complex clearances orthogonal to road or rail elevations, fully automated tools extract min/max and range of clearances in seconds.
Throw away the Ball-Bank indicator! Automatically evaluate the maximum advisory speed along a curve and issue a report — in seconds!
Automatically determine if any object will collide with another by moving a 2D area or 3D volume along a path. Are retaining walls encroaching on a roadway?, vegetation in a corridor?, will wide load fit through a rail tunnel? — identify and locate the encroachment quickly!
Quickly determine if a roadway, sidewalk, floor or other surface meets grade requirements. Automatically extract gradient along and orthogonal to any specified path.
Analyze building or retaining walls quickly and accurately. Automatically determine if a wall is vertical or if it is moving while documenting the results at every station in an exported spreadsheet.
Analyze pavement distress (road wear) and automatically generates PCI index reports.
Quickly analyze sidewalk ramps to verify ADA compliance and generate accompanying spreadsheet reports.
Design your own tractor trailer (lorry) and take it for a ride through your point cloud. Locate collisions and classify objects in the vehicle path.
Automatically classify data encroachments along a corridor. But that’s not all! After the data is classified represent it with a simple polygon complete with area measurement.
It’s easy to map corridor encroachment along a complex path. Just identify a baseline and run a series of classification polygons offset by known intervals. The resulting surface is a color coded by depth of encroachment.
Just like roads, you can also automatically assess the condition of new or old sidewalks. Find and identify holes, edge steps and other problems automatically.
Automatically extract features, then measure and report on it’s height above ground directly below or at any offset. In the example hundreds of guard rail feet are measured in seconds!
