TopoDOT® Workflow Extract

Extract Topographies, GIS Assets, and Structural Models

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.

TopoDOT® Topography Feature Extraction

A comprehensive collection of tools feeds downstream design, construction and GIS operations with the highest quality topography models.

Automatic
Break Line

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.

Automatic Complex
Break Line

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.

Automatic
Paint Stripe

An intuitive and easy interface allows you to isolate stripe data based on intensity. Extract long 3D corridor stripe vectors automatically.

Learn More

Automatic
Rail

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!

Learn More

Automatic
Road Surface

Automatically extract cross section measurements orthogonal to a road alignment. It’s never necessary to classify or clean data prior to extraction!

Learn More

Automatic
Bare Earth

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!

Learn More

Automatic Vertical Asset

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!

Learn More

Automatic Guard Rail

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.

TopoDOT® Structural Model Extraction

From simple 2D footprints to extensive 3D rendered models, there’s no limit to productive structural modeling capability.

3D
Bridge Model

Quickly construct your 3D bridge model the way it was designed. Identify the design profile, model it and extrude—it’s that easy!

Learn More

3D
Beam Extraction

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!

Learn More

Building
Footprint

Take a horizontal cross section of your building data in seconds. Then use the automatic smart line tool to quickly extract accurate building footprints.

Learn More

3D
Building Model

Quickly construct your 3D bridge model the way it was designed. Identify the right profile, model it, and extrude—it’s that easy!

Learn More

TopoDOT® Automated Analysis

Automatically extract features, analyze metrics, and issue detailed reports to maximize the value of point cloud data.

Automatic
Clearance

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.

Learn More

Automatic
Speed Advisory

Throw away the Ball-Bank indicator! Automatically evaluate the maximum advisory speed along a curve and issue a report — in seconds!

Learn More

Collision

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!

Learn More

Gradient Assessment

Quickly determine if a roadway, sidewalk, floor or other surface meets grade requirements. Automatically extract gradient along and orthogonal to any specified path.

Learn More

Wall Monitoring

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.

Learn More

Road Condition

Analyze pavement distress (road wear) and automatically generates PCI index reports.

Learn More

ADA Ramps

Quickly analyze sidewalk ramps to verify ADA compliance and generate accompanying spreadsheet reports.

Learn More

The lowest risk, highest return investment you can make in your productivity!
