OxTS Georeferencer is a software tool developed by OxTS to combine INS navigation data with raw LiDAR data. It can be used alongside any OxTS Survey INS to create a georeferenced 3D Pointcloud.
OxTS Georeferencer takes a file collected with a LiDAR scanner (synchronised in real-time with an OxTS inertial navigation system), a processed navigation trajectory file from the OxTS INS, and some required configuration files, to create a LAS pointcloud file that can be viewed in many 3rd party LiDAR software packages.
Furthermore, thanks to our experience in calibration techniques, we have been able to develop a data-driven technique that helps system integrators and end users to start their work with confidence that their INS and LiDAR hardware has been installed precisely and accurately. This is the boresight calibration feature.
We offer the software free to download and provide example data for testing purposes. Using the data you can go through the process of georeferencing a pointcloud and use the boresight calibration tool to practise setting up your survey. You can download the test data and software from our support site and also view several support articles to help you get up and running – OxTS support site

Time Overlap Chart
OxTS Georeferencer now includes a time overlap chart. The time overlap chart gives surveyors the ability to:
- Visualise their survey route on a map
- Choose the start and end time of their survey
This feature will provide surveyors with even more flexibility over the parts of the survey they wish to view or present.
Webinar: What's new in OxTS Georeferencer 1.4
Earlier this month we hosted a webinar where we provided a deeper insight into the latest release of our LiDAR Georeferencing software – OxTS Georeferencer 1.4.
During the webinar we discussed:
- The new LiDAR integrations now available within OxTS Georeferencer
- How OxTS continues to drive user experience improvements within OxTS Georeferencer
- What the new 3D hardware viewer and time overlap chart mean for surveyors
- What the future holds for OxTS Georeferencer
LiDAR Surveying Brochure
OxTS inertial navigation systems provide end users with absolute position and highly accurate inertial measurement information. This information allows them to georeference pointclouds from multiple LiDAR sensors.
These measurements help increase survey repeatability, cut down the time to survey, intelligently analyse data, improve final results and increase project ROI.

OxTS Georeferencer 'How To' Tutorial
Learn the basics of using OxTS Georeferencer with this short tutorial video. During the tutorial, OxTS Product Engineer Jacob Amacker discusses:
- How to use OxTS Georeferencer and the different files required for the compatible LiDAR sensors
- How to check your surveying route and the different processing options OxTS Georeferencer offers
- The georeferencing, pointcloud creation feature
Jacob also demonstrates the boresight calibration tool available within OxTS Georeferencer and shows example pointclouds. He then explains how the different options described play into the final results of these.
