What is WingEarth?

WingEarth is a three-dimensional point cloud processor that makes use of the expertise of the high-accuracy positioning technology that AISAN TECHNOLOGY has accumulated over the years.
WingEarth is a user friendly processor based on a newly developed point cloud processing engine, and can process point cloud data obtained from UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), TLS (Terrestrial Laser Scanner), or MMS (Mobile Mapping System) at high speed.

High-speed display of massive point clouds
that exceed 10 billion points

WingEarth can display data sets exceeding 10 billion points at high speed. When mapping, displaying only the point clouds necessary for operation enables data processing without being influenced by unnecessary point clouds.

Large point of load

Edge display

A variety of functions,
including automatic object recognition and point cloud editing

Object recognition, the most labor-intensive part of point cloud processing, is now possible with one click.
Extract, delete, undo, and group operations can be performed easily, enabling smooth editing.

Enhanced point cloud noise removal function,
such as ground filtering

This function estimates the ground based on the point cloud for each specified range, and removes distant point clouds that have a thickness of more than the estimated value from the ground.
A variety of filtering functions are available in response to customers' requirements.

High-definition mesh creation
[3D mesh]

A realistic configuration of the topography can be created as a mesh image.
Creation of a 3D mesh image allows you to understand the three-dimensional shapes of the surface layers of point clouds.

  • 3D mesh image of tunnel wall

Enhanced mapping support functions

You can perform three-dimensional tracing using a function that highlights the edges of point cloud object shapes or reflected intensity of scanned data (patent pending), as if you are performing two-dimensional graphical editing.
These functions include some CAD functions that draw connections by projecting 3D data onto a plane and perform mapping while estimating three-dimensional shapes based on point clouds around power poles and an Oltho image creation function.

Cross-section creation/editing function

Cross-sectional images can be created and edited.
Even when point clouds exist at the upper and lower sections of a space like a tunnel, the outline can be easily created.

Supporting earthwork value calculations

Cutting and filling quantity required for construction works can be calculated, and a visualized heat map can be displayed.
