Mapping Resource Import Templates

This page documents the Mapping Run Import Templates, downloads, data preparation.
It is recommended to read first Supported 3D Mapping Resources.

Concepts

A set of mapping or reality data is imported as a Mapping Run using an Import Template.

Depending on the combination of the supported mapping resources (influenced by the vendor, post-processing software, carrier set-up, available data, and other specifications) the data import might be different. A template is a well-defined set of configurations that is related to a known system.

Carrier Collection Location Data Types
Aerial Mapping drone (airplane) dynamic
nadir, inspection, corridor mapping
airborne planars, point cloud, ortho, dem, mesh 1)
Mobile Mapping backpack, car, handheld, train, tripod, trolley dynamic, (multi) static ground-level, street-level, terrestrial, outdoor & indoor trajectory, panoramas, planars, point cloud, ortho, dem, mesh
Oblique Mapping airplane (drone) dynamic
oblique, 4 cameras in a quadrant, tilted ~45deg
airborne planars, point cloud, ortho, dem, mesh

Add Template

Only the generic import templates are shipped at installation.
Vendor-specific templates can be downloaded from this page. The unzipped downloaded can be added as an import template at Create Run, part of the Import Run procedure, see Import Mapping Run.

Custom Templates

In addition to the available templates, the Orbit engine offers many customization capabilities to create tailored-made import templates for any kind or combination of mapping and reality data. Once the configuration is completed, a template can be derived to simplify future imports.

For some basic template configurations, see Orbit Mapping Resources - Structure and Configs.
Contact Orbit Support for more information and to create your custom import template.
