E3De™ is an interactive geospatial software environment that allows you to create powerful, photorealistic 3D visualizations and easily extract important features and products from LiDAR data. This important information can now conveniently be included in your geospatial analysis projects like, viewshed studies, forest inventories, right-of-way analyses, and urban planning. With E3De, you can quickly prepare your data, accurately extract features, fine-tune your results, and export your products for further analysis.

Professionals across industries use LiDAR data to enhance their understanding of the geospatial information they use to make critical decisions. Whether applying LiDAR data to civil planning, natural resource management, geological exploration, or defense and intelligence, E3De allows users utilize LiDAR data to create photorealistic 3D visualizations, extract 3D features, and export products and layers.

The E3De Feature Analysis Workflow:

The E3De workflow allows you to transform your point cloud data and extract essential information for your geospatial applications. Discover the intuitive steps of E3De analysis workflow:

Transform 3D data with E3De:

In the past, understanding the exact height and dimension of manmade and natural objects often required field analysis costing organizations time and resources. The E3De workflow allows you to transform your point cloud data and extract essential information for your geospatial applications without leaving the office. Beginning with data preparation, E3De allows you to quickly and easily identify and extract 3D features, refine your results, and export 3D products that can be fused with traditional 2D imagery for further analysis or inclusion in your GIS.

E3De uses multi-threading technology that allows you to quickly identify 3D features of interest by using the full processing power of your desktop.

Traditional methods of identifying features of interest such as building footprints, trees, power lines, and power poles were complex and time consuming due to the cost and time commitment of sending employees to remote locations to collect elevation and location information. E3De allows you to find features of interest utilizing LiDAR data through either an automated feature identification tool or by manually editing and identifying features as you explore the data in a 3D visualization. Feature identification can be performed on an entire point cloud scene, a user defined subset of a scene, or multiple LAS files simultaneously, providing accurate information in a fraction of the time. E3De utilizes the detailed elevation information in LiDAR data to enhance your geospatial analysis.

Commonly Identified Features and Products:
Identify building footprints
Create forest inventories
Perform viewshed analyses
Complete right-of-way analyses
Determine power line and power pole locations

The products you create with E3De feature identification capabilities are useful in a variety of industries, from utilities for determining vegetation encroachment on power lines, to defense and intelligence for viewshed analysis, or even natural resource management to create forest inventories. Regardless of your application, E3De has the functionality you need to make informed decisions.

3D feature extraction results often need to be refined to ensure that individual features are accurately identified, or to correct attributes to ensure the visualization is true-to-life. To refine results in E3De, fly through a photorealistic scene looking for specific data points or individual features that need editing. Editing features in E3De is easy; simply click specific data points and modify their identification. Refine DEMs by smoothing, fixing misclassifications, or refine results to include individual features such as: the shape of structures, the number of trees, and the location of power poles and power lines.

After features are identified in your data scene, exporting those features as products or layers is useful for performing additional geospatial analysis, sharing with colleagues for verification studies, or inclusion in your GIS for mapping applications. E3De can export products and layers in a topographic format, as a standard raster, a .csv file, or in GeoTIFF, LAS, and SHP image formats.

Easily export your results to:
Add additional content to your GIS mapping applications
Include 3D features as raster or vector layers in your geospatial imagery analysis
Utilize critical, timely elevation information in a viewshed analysis
Export your results to ENVI.
