Smart Collect is a software that enables the calibration of objects on streets in the environment by means of a smartphone app. The user takes three smartphone pictures of the object to be measured from three different perspectives. After uploading those pictures to a website, the x-, y- and z-coordinates will be determined automatically. Thus Smart Collect replaces work that could only be done priorly by professional surveyors. Users benefit from time and cost savings and from a fully digital data base.

LAStools is a suite of highly efficient modules for processing point cloud data generated with laser scanning (i. e. Lidar) or photogrammetry software (e. g. dense-matching). The over 40 modules for classifying, de-noising, tiling, converting, thinning, raterizing, contouring, coloring, compressing, splitting, gridding, … are typically combined into longer pipelines. LAStools can be used via a native GUI, from the command-line, or via toolboxes in QGIS, ArcGIS, and Erdas Imagine. The ability to script the modules also makes them ideally suited for employment on Web servers or in the cloud.
