About this User Guide

This document serves as a user's guide for the 64-bit versions of TerraScan. The entry-level version, TerraScan Lite, is functionally a subset of the full version, TerraScan. TerraScan UAV is aiming to users who process point clouds collected with UAS (Unmanned Airborne Systems, also referred to systems carried by Drones). Tools available in TerraScan, TerraScan UAV, and/or TerraScan Lite work identically in all versions. Tools that are not available in TerraScan Lite are marked as "Not Lite" in the documentation. Tools that are not available in TerraScan UAV are marked with "Not UAV" in the documentation.
