What is the difference between ROCK Pre-Processing Software and the ROCK Cloud?

Both require annual renewal.

ROCK Desktop Software 

  • The ROCK Desktop Pre-Processing Software is used to turn your R2A, R360 and/or R3Pro raw lidar data (along with your base station data) into your point cloud (.las)
  • You can purchase a ROCK Desktop Pre-Processing license directly from your ROCK Cloud account


ROCK Cloud 

  • ROCK Cloud Subscriptions are used to upload, store, analyze and edit your point cloud (.las/.laz), depending on the features of your subscription tier.  
  • You can view subscription tiers and features by logging into your ROCK Cloud account and following these steps:
    • Click on your profile icon in the top right corner of the screen. 
    • Click "View Profile"
    • In the Subscription box click "Manage"
    • Follow the workflow to update your subscription type, payment method, billing information or see your invoice history
  • The ROCK Cloud is also where you order your deliverables including ROCK Surveyor, Hydrology, Planimetrics and Vegetation Management.
    • You can view more information on what's included for each deliverable as well as a cost estimation calculator you can use for your projects by logging into your ROCK Cloud Account and clicking on the "Marketplace" icon in the left hand menu bar.
