Use Cases

The project consists of topography and the design of 50 kilometres of track, using a drone survey and a mobile terrestrial lidar system.

Drawing with orthoimages inserted

The TcpMDT 7.5 software was used to obtain the topography of a road section of approximately 50 kilometers.

TcpMDT 7.5 allows to work with surfaces generated by programs that process the drone images, and it helps to complete the topography in all the required area, guaranteeing the precision required by an engineering project.

Once the topography and the final digital terrain model are generated, it is easy to continue working within the MDT 7.5 to carry out the road design.

It is easy to create all the road elements necessary to project the road, make cut and fill volume calculations and draw the plan and profile sheets from the triangulated surface.

All that is needed is to follow step by step the menu of the Tcp MDT 7.5.

Surveys, digital terrain model, contours, profiles and volumes

It was very easy to create the surface and generate the contour lines, thanks to the well-structured menu that allows to process step by step the information obtained from the field.

In addition, the software allows combining information obtained with conventional methods (such as Total Station) with data acquired with modern methods such as LiDAR or drone.
