New: Point Cloud Uploads in Propeller

After being introduced for commercial use 20 years ago, lidar has proven to be a powerful tool in the surveying toolbox. As hardware costs continue to go down, we’re seeing more and more worksites using lidar as a part of their surveying workflows. That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of our new easy Point Cloud Upload feature in Propeller.
