ScanLook PC (Point Cloud) Release Notes

Version 1.0.19X

TBD, 2019 <We skipped a few Release Note updates, about 60!>

  1. Added warning if INS event rate is incorrect.
  2. Fixed NumReturns and ReturnNum in LAS file tags on points.
    1. Had previously interpreted NumReturns as the # possible from the scanner, not actual recorded (the latter can always be computed and is redundant information).
  3. Fixed bug in Velodyne multiple returns giving duplicate GPS time tag.
  4. If bad pcap file packet size, report it.
  5. Added menu system.
    1. File (Reset Files, Backups).
    2. Options (Advanced Parameters, Backup Options, Edit Parameters, and Load/Save Defaults).
    3. Tools (CUPDT, Match Overlap, Show Batch command, Process Commands).
    4. Programs (simple common Windows tools).
    5. Help (Wiki, Training portal, Chat, eTickets, downloads, release notes)
  6. Added super tiny time correction for the Riegl VUX systems.
  7. Allow for control dialog to display even if no control.txt exists.
  8. Added smarter search for sta files.
  9. Removed Strongest option for Velodyne replaced with All, First, Last.
  10. Added extra calibration parameter for scale if necessary.
  11. Added ZF convert and Riegl Convert as a batch commands.
  12. Intensity filters properly use “!<lo>-<hi>”. It wasn't completely working before. Do not mix ! for exclusion with a line for inclusion. In other words, only exclude or include, but not both.
  13. Added option to output each laser in its own las/laz file (already had it for text).
  14. Selecting entire field on text entry boxes by default when they get focus (as expected in Windows).
  15. Updated Options dialog for Riegl MTA options.
  16. Updated Options dialog for Z+F filter options.
  17. Added more batch scripts for processing Riegl and Z+F raw data files.
  18. Moved output.xml, output.kml to an “output” folder to reduce clutter.
  19. Added RED CAUTION box when running control IF main filters are enabled.
  20. Wow, found some setup dates with -2017 and changed them to 2019.
  21. Added a user specific folder depth search parameter. Defaulting to 10. This will only be an issue if you have a lot of folders and files under your project. If you do, you should set this to 2 or 3. You can manually edit this in your <UserName>\AppData\Roaming\ScanLook.xml file by adding in the Options section FolderDepthToSearch.
  22. The base output filename for Riegl scans would go to Riegl UNLESS you hit Reset Files, Graphics, or Convert which would then use miniVUX, VUXLR, or VUX as appropriate. Now it uses the later by default and not Riegl.
  23. Added a Project Info box with some key information nicely assembled. It is under the File menu.
  24. Added export of corrected scanner trajectory with boresight AND control/tie corrections.
  25. Made control point search “smarter” - I hope.
  26. Changed progress from display of current event to current time and h:m:s of scan data remaining.
  27. Added ability to notify clients by scanner with messages.
  28. Added a General Options dialog for a few necessary options (linear units).
  29. Updated Graphics to be able to load in the Point Cloud index files for more than just Velodyne.
  30. Added export to RPH and Quaternions for Ladybug*Extended*txt files to support more 3rd party software.
  31. Added Optech CL-90 processing!!!
  32. Added PhaseOne, Sentera, and Smoother interfaces to Options menu.
  33. Added more control point search and find parameters to Options::General Options.
  34. In General Options added a Ladybug Folder option in case it was not in the normal location in the project itself.
  35. Added a “Feathering” parameter to General Options for the Smoother.
  36. When changing a project, the command buttons are temporarily disabled until the change is complete.
  37. Multiple Riegl rxp files can now be processed properly.
  38. Added some improvements for sensors working with TimeOfDay (ToD) instead of TimeOfWeek (ToW).
  39. Added some additional Quanergy M8 calibration parameters.
  40. Fixed minor nuisance bug where Riegl files (mini or VUX) would sometimes default as Riegl instead of miniVUX, VUX or VUXLR.
  41. Riegl rxp file converter is sensitive to spaces in the path. Found a fix for this.
  42. On Advanced Boresight, the “→ScanLook” command now creates a tar file for updating the sensor settings.
  43. Ladybug boresight tools are delivered with Ladybug setup files.

Version 1.0.135

Enhanced Interrupt operation.

After each file is completed it is written as the last Interrupt.
On Resume if Manually interrupted it asks you if you want to keep last
  partial file.

Version 1.0.122

  1. Leap Second fix particularly affecting the Velodyne data.

Version 1.0.119

  1. Added some messages when starting colorizing.
  2. Added Trimble Applanix POS input.

Version 1.0.118

  1. Some very minor fixes.

Version 1.0.117

  1. Fixed bug with first installation on a system creating 1kb las files. It wasn't creating a user folder for the calibration file.

  3. Added one time prompt for Customer name.
  4. Added initial Quanergy stuff.
  5. Creating Velodyne*.kml files in pcap folder. This is handy to see exactly where the scanner was on and off, not just where the INS was tracking.
