LTK™

Elevate your data

Analyze LiDAR and photogrammetric point-cloud data with easy-to-use GIS software. LTK™ translates billions of data points into elevation-based information products, such as canopy height models and spatially-explicit forest inventories – and all with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Bring your point cloud data to the frontlines of forest management with LTK™. The software streamlines and automates complex workflows so that anyone with GIS skills can generate an enhanced forest inventory (EFI). When Lim Geomatics protocols are followed, LTK™ can predict volumes with a 95 per cent accuracy when compared against scaled volumes. Put decades of R&D to work by using LTK™:

  • Easy to use for anyone with GIS skills
  • Runs in the ArcGIS Desktop environment so no need for command prompts
  • Process an unlimited number of points on any computer
  • Join the world’s top researchers and jumpstart your EFI

LTK™ in action for a company like yours:

Lim Geomatics has processed 26 million hectares and counting of LiDAR data in support of EFI production worldwide.

Simple and Easy to Use

Create a DEM, DSM and CHM from your point data with half a dozen mouse clicks. No need to queue up multiple Python scripts and cross your fingers that everything works. Just tell LTK™ what you are trying to do, give it the input parameters and then let it do the heavy lifting. Why pay a vendor to produce these basic information products when you can do it at a fraction of the cost? If an area-based or individual tree inventory is your thing, let LTK™ generate all those hundreds of predictors to build a model or feed them directly to R for a Random Forest analysis. LTK™ comes pre-canned with basic predictors, but you can easily define your own. It’s just that simple.

Runs in ArcGIS Desktop

No need to use a command prompt to type in data processing commands or muddle around in poorly designed interfaces. The LTK™ toolbar runs in the familiar ArcGIS Desktop environment so if you know how to use this industry-leading GIS, you’re good to go. Instead of reinventing the wheel, LTK™ uses ArcGIS Desktop built-in capabilities such as LAS datasets and mosaic datasets for efficient data management. In fact, while working with LTK™, any of the available ArcGIS Desktop tools are at your fingertips. Leverage the best of the best in GIS technology with LTK™.

Unlimited Data Processing

The sky’s the limit on the number of data points that LTK™ can process. You can process terabytes of point cloud data in hours instead of weeks because of the software’s smart data algorithms. LTK™ is so smart that it doesn’t matter if you are using an everyday laptop or a super computer. LTK™ gets the job done by leveraging parallel data processing with the available computer resources. All you have to worry about is whether or not you have enough data storage because LTK™ can crunch through any volume of data.

Jumpstart Your EFI

LTK™ has been used to process over 26 million ha of LiDAR data in support of EFIs around the world. Whether that is an EFI for the boreal forest in Canada or a eucalyptus plantation in South Africa, LTK™ has seen it all and has passed all the tests time and time again. There’s a reason why the world’s leading researchers use this software: LTK™ allows people to focus on the science and not get caught in the weeds of mundane data processing. Jumpstart your EFI with LTK™ and liberate your team to focus on what matters most—running a successful business today and tomorrow.
