For consistent and precise digital GIS and photogrammetry workflows, raw data must first be converted into integrable and thus valuable information components that meet the requirements of the respective application environments. The 3D point cloud processing modules from the Finnish software provider Terrasolid, such as TerraScan, TerraModeler, TerraMatch, TerraPhoto and TerraStereo, are highly developed, intelligent and powerful applications. They are able to process and model laser points with their XYZ coordinates at high speed and can also display the result in 3D-stereo. During the last 20 years, the capabilities of the available LiDAR hardware has developed rapidly together with the capabilities of the processing software, with Terrasolid applications at the forefront.
