Edinburgh Princes Street

Edinburgh Princes Street

This LiDAR scan, captured from the Emesent Hovermap ST, was taken in the height of summer, a peak time for this location. Therefore, this dataset was filled with noise due to many moving vehicles and pedestrians, making for a busy point cloud.

This dataset was a perfect test for Trimble Business Centre’s (TBC) automatic classification feature, which removed all the noise with the click of a button, a process that would have typically taken hours to clean manually, TBC dealt with the process in minutes. In addition to the noise removal, we are also able to isolate other layers within the point cloud. In this example, we removed the vegetation in and around Princes Street gardens using the same process to isolate the ground level.
