This tutorial explains how to trigger a lidar-Archimed2 (jan 2013) simulation on a vegetal scene from Simeo in interactive mode. See the Archimed2 documentation for further details.
To see how to create a vegetation scene in Simeo with the Edito module, see the related documentation.
Once your vegetation scene constructed or loaded, select the Simeo / Lidar-Archimed2 export plugin:
The Lidar-Archimed2 plugin configuration panel appears:
Configure the radiative models
Configure the scene parameters
Configure the Lidar parameters
Option: the Conic Emitter spot radius and the Sensor field of view radius can be set by clicking on the angle button and entering an angle and an Emitter-target distance
Set the ART parameters
When ready, launch the process with Ok.
The progress is reported in a dialog box showing the messages from Lidar-Archimed2 and the images when produced if requested upper. The resulting file(s) are written in the export directory at the end of the process.
