Dataset from laser scanning of lunar soil simulants

Published: 24 March 2023| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/75hphx78ck.1


The dataset is stored as the point clouds format (*.txt) and image file tested lunar soil simulants. The results of measurements by the Z+F IMAGER 5016, FARO Focus3D and Leica ScanStation scanner were placed in separate folders, respectively. The names of the folders reflect the abbreviation names of the scanners (Z+F, Faro, Leica). The structure of the name of the files is as follows: xx_yy_zz.txt – where xx stands for the name of lunar soil simulant, yy abbreviation names of the scanners, zz distance in meters from TLS to target (5 m, 10 m, 20 m, 30 m, 40 m, 50 m, 60 m, 80 m, 100 m). Example file: ‘OPRL2N_Z+F_10m.txt’ - measurement of the OPRL2N lunar soil simulant by Z+F IMAGER 5016 scanner from a distance of 10 m. name.jpg – photo of the LSS, where ‘name’ stands acronym of lunar soil simulant The structure of the files (*.txt format) is as follows: X Y Z Intensity (range from 0 to 1) – where X, Y, Z are 3D coordinates of points, unit [m] Intensity is a relation between emitted and received signal power by TLS (radiometric information of point cloud).
