Toronto, Canada, September 19, 2007: Optech Incorporated, a provider of advanced lidar survey instruments, announced that it is collaborating with Canada based, InnovMetric Software Inc. to bundle ILRIS-3D products with the PolyWorks, a point cloud processing software suite. Under the terms of this agreement, Optech will bundle a license of the PolyWorks IMAlign module with each ILRIS system.
The PolyWorks IMAlign module offers scan alignment capabilities to produce an aligned point cloud from multiple scans. The alignment technology is based on the geometrical shape in overlapping scan areas, eliminating the time-consuming task of using physical targets in the field, and reducing significantly the time for work on site and in the office. The IMAlign module also supports the use of control points when available.
