Inertial Labs offers multiple software options for various applications and use cases that include but are not limited to real-time data acquisition, post-processing, visualization, and manipulation. Aside from building a Graphical User Interface for visualization and detailed configuration of sensor parameters, Inertial Labs has partnered with various corporate partners such as NovAtel and Rock Robotic to offer top-of-the-line trajectory correction and lidar post-processing software, respectively.
With intuitive interfacing and simple workflows, Inertial Labs’ software is designed to be as user-friendly as possible. For example, Inertial Labs’ LiDAR point cloud generation and colorization software have options for one-click processing workflows.
The Inertial Labs team of skilled engineers provides expertise to help users select from the software available: PCMaster, PCPainter, and ROCK Cloud. Reach out to our support team for help integrating using your software or visit our Knowledge Base to view answers to frequently asked questions.
Sensor Based Graphical User Interface
Engineered for end-users across various industries, the Sensor Based Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides customers with the capabilities for detailed data analysis while maintaining simple interfacing.
A key defining feature of the GUI is that the user can choose from various predefined output data formats such as OPVT, NMEA, SPAN, and Seatex. In addition to predefined formats, users can define their output data formats. As a result, Inertial Labs’ sensors can be easily integrated into existing systems without a hitch in data output.
In addition to the output data format, the sensor-based GUI allows users to define nearly all device parameters, including data rate, magnetic declination, aiding data, and much more. Customizable from beginning to end, the sensor-based GUI gives you the power to meet the requirements of virtually any project.
PCMaster – LiDAR Point Cloud Software
Engineered for partners and resellers in the remote sensing industry, PCMaster is the LiDAR point cloud generation software for Inertial Labs’ breakthrough LiDAR Remote Sensing Payload Instrument, RESEPI.
PCMaster, powered by Waypoint® Inertial Explorer from Hexagon | NovAtel®, features a simple and quick workflow where the user only needs to input a base station RTCM file. From there, PCMaster automatically corrects the antenna lever arm offset, combines and processes the forward and reverse trajectory, and produces a post-processed trajectory. After one more click, the LAS file can be made.
In addition to a simple workflow, PCMaster has a few built-in features for point cloud analysis. Users can filter data by selecting portions of the trajectory they want. This is especially helpful for mapping users that want to limit data overlap for thin bare earth models. Additionally, data accuracy can be analyzed with PCMaster’s built-in cloud slicing and measurement features for simple and precise spot-checking procedures.
PCPainter – LiDAR Colorization Software
PCPainter is Inertial Labs’ .las colorization software. This is done by projecting images from the integrated camera over the .las file. As a result, each point is colorized to reflect the images captured in flight.
PCPainter features a one-click workflow where the user selects the “process” option. The software will automatically check in the images, build the octree, project the images over the point cloud, and produce a colorized .las file.

Inertial Labs recommends the ROCK Cloud for all LiDAR point cloud processing. The ROCK Cloud is an entirely cloud-based software where users can upload, share, manage, and process RESEPI LiDAR data. The ROCK Cloud gives users all the tools to get a deeper analysis of their point cloud for vegetation management, hydrologic modeling, and much more. PCMaster produces LAS files in WGS 84 datum and UST projection zone, the ROCK Cloud is an excellent tool for users looking to convert LAS files in a local datum and preferred projection coordinate system.
A DEM (Digital Elevation Model) and Contours provide accurate insight into the ground topography. The first step in creating these accurate deliverables is to classify the ground using the ROCK Cloud AI Engine.
Once the ground is accurately determined, a DEM and contours can be generated. Contour lines are delivered in the most popular formats so that you can import them into any CAD or GIS software package. Additionally, you can view the contours right on the ROCK Cloud!
Users can generate ground classified .laz files, SHP files containing geometry, DBF attribute format files, SHX shape index files, DEMs in TIF format, and accurate reports with the ROCK cloud.
Power-line corridor management is critical to delivering safe and uninterrupted electricity. The Power-line Corridor Management deliverable gives you the intelligence needed from your LiDAR point cloud. Upload data receive a classified point cloud and shapefile of the active danger points. You can visualize that danger points right from the rock cloud!
Year after year, vegetation continues to infringe on our power grid. With drone LiDAR, you can quickly view and catalog the highest-risk areas for your power-line corridor. See all of your encroachments easily on both the map and LiDAR view!
With the ROCK Cloud, you can classify ground points, high/medium/low vegetation, buildings, substations, transmission towers, and more!
ROCK Planimetrics combines superior artificial intelligence, machine learning, and quality control to create accurate planimetric deliverables. Additionally, you can select and pay for specific areas of your dataset, so you are paying for only the acreage you need!
Select between 1″=20′, 1″=40′, or 1″=100′ to determine the level of detail you require. If the deliverable you need doesn’t fall neatly within these scales, email your requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will build you a custom quote!
ROCK Hydrology delivers a hydro-flattened topographic DEM and contours where waterbodies have a single elevation and streams and rivers are flat bank-to-bank, with a monotonic flow. A hydro-flattened DEM is a topographic DEM and should not be confused with hydro-enforced or hydro-conditioned DEMs representing hydrologic surfaces. Hydro-flattening aims to create an artificial water surface over water bodies that will possess essential surface characteristics of natural water.
Hydro-flattened data is delivered under the following parameters defined in the USGS Lidar Base Specification Guidelines.
ROCK Hydrology delivers users with a ground classified laz file, an SHP file containing geometry data, a DBF attribute format file, an SHX shape index file, a hydro-flattened DEM in TIF format, and an accuracy report.
