If you have access to the LIDAR feature, here is how to model using LIDAR in HelioScope:
Setting up LIDAR in the design:
- After completing your initial site design, turn on LIDAR by clicking the "Turn LIDAR on" button in the top right-hand corner
OR by clicking on the LIDAR button under the Advanced setting on the Design Menu
- Click the Turn on LIDAR button next to LIDAR
- Click between LIDAR Styles to toggle between Mesh, Imagery, or Point Cloud
- Adjust the LIDAR data by using the x, y, and z Data Offset fields.
You can also view or switch the source of LIDAR data in the LIDAR settings menu.
Next, go to the Mechanical tab and right-click on your field segment to align your field segment to LIDAR:*Note: the options "Fit to LIDAR (Tilt)" and Fit to LIDAR (Height and Tilt)" are only available for field segment types with a tilt (e.g. Flush Mount)
LIDAR will cover all design elements up to a maximum of 400m x 400m (160,000m²) or approximately 1300ft x 1300ft (1,690,000ft²). Click Here to see HelioScope’s LIDAR availability map.
