Point Cloud Processing Software

What is TopoDOT®?

TopoDOT® is a CAD application for extracting features, topographies, and 3D models from LiDAR system data. TopoDOT®'s comprehensive tool suite integrated with the existing CAD capabilities of MicroStation® or PowerSurvey®, yields a low cost application unrivaled in productivity and performance. Use TopoDOT® across the spectrum of civil infrastructure applications such as roadway, architecture, structures, and topography. TopoDOT® feeds downstream engineering, design, and construction processes with models consistently exceeding requirements and expectations.

Why do I need TopoDOT®?

The application of LiDAR technology is becoming ubiquitous across the spectrum of civil infrastructure projects. Every survey, design, engineering and construction company needs a LiDAR strategy to manage data, assess quality and extract 3D models for use across design, engineering and construction operations. TopoDOT® effectively fulfills these requirements in one comprehensive, low cost, high performance application.

How does TopoDOT® differ from other software?

Many software applications focus on point clouds as just data. These programs typically import as many points as possible without totally addressing requirements of the underlying process. In contrast, TopoDOT® was developed to address the requirements of the "process". Thus TopoDOT® is not just a "point-cloud processing tool". TopoDOT® is a comprehensive solution successfully addressing the challenges of processing LiDAR data across the spectrum of data management, quality assessment and extraction of high quality features, topographies and 3D models. The TopoDOT® process thus assures that downstream design, engineering and construction processes will receive information and models of the highest possible quality from LiDAR data.
