latitude, longitude, altitude and so on. The output will be available in .TIF (Tag Image File) format .
PrecisionMapper provides the Geo-referenced image as a default output (Figure 1).

other types of vegetation) as well as built (apartments, power lines and so on) structures.
The output will be available in .TIF format.
A DSM includes structures which are extruded from the earth’s surface (Figure 2).

The output file format is .ply (Polygon File format). Various properties such as color, surface normal,
transparency and so on can be stored in this file format (Figure 3).

Keyhole Markup Language (KML) Files
the earth map. The KML folder consists of a KML and an HTML file which can be used for analysis.
The KML file can be accessed with Google Earth while the HTML file with any web browser (Figure 4).

the site and offers a platform for further analysis and processing. The survey region is provided as
an .obj (Object) file. This format represents the position of each vertex, the UV position of
each texture coordinates, vertex, vertex normal, and the faces that make each polygon defined
as a list of vertices and the texture vertices representing 3D geometry (Figure 6).
