This page describes the original LiBackpack C50 and DGC50 mobile mapping resources for Orbit.

Use the corresponding Orbit Import Template to import the described original data.
It is recommend to read first Orbit Mapping Resource.


Image files

  • Image type: equirectangular panoramas.
  • Image resolution: Ratio 2×1
  • File format: Each image is one *.jpg file.
  • Filename: Exactly as filePath of image positions file, without the first part (path to the folder to which they belong).
    • Example: value for filePath in the Image Position File = 'Img/img4.jpg' → Filename is 'img4.jpg'
  • Folder structure:
    • Organized in (a) subfolder(s) within the “original” folder of the run.
    • Sub folder name(s) : “Img”, see below
    • Example: filePath = “Img/img4.jpg” → Path to that image file is <Orbit run>\Panorama1\Original\Img\img4.jpg

Image positions file

  • File format: One ASCII file.
  • File structure Rows: Each image is one record.
  • File structure Columns: Comma separated, headers, with exact order as in the example below.
  • Value of filePath, column 0: Filename as on disk, with file extension and subfolder to which the image file belongs.
  • Value of Coordinates: any supported coordinate system can be used, Long/Lat order for geographical coordinates, decimal notation, without thousands separator. In the case of LiBackpack C50, the use of EPSG 3395 is advised, because these data are taken in a local system. For DGC50, the data are georeferenced, so users can choose the coordinate system that was used.


Point cloud files

  • File format: One or more *.las or *.laz files.
  • Value of Coordinates: Same CRS as Photopositions.
  • Value of Timestamps: Same Time Reference as Photopositions, see above.
