3D Laser Mapping Launches Campaign to Release Open Source LiDAR Data

3D Laser Mapping, leading geospatial technology specialist, is launching a campaign to give free access to LiDAR data in order to showcase the capabilities of mobile mapping systems. They will be offering open access to point cloud data which can be viewed and manipulated using GIS software. This information can be extracted for use by businesses, academic research and for in-house training opportunities. The company will be releasing data collected using its flexible ROBIN mobile mapping system, which can be used on foot, in a vehicle and mounted to aircraft and UAVs. The move comes as UK Chancellor Philip Hammond... (read more)

Pointfuse Powers Virtual Reality for West End and Broadway Shows

Pointfuse point cloud software is helping to boost the appeal of West End and Broadway with laser scanning and Virtual Reality (VR) specialist Preevue by dramatically reducing the time taken to process complex laser scans into usable and accessible 3D models for visualisations. These visualisations, created with Preevue’s in house VR software, are used to see how a set design fits in a new theatre, optimise line of sight modifications to maximise ticket sales and provide virtual site visits. Preevue has already used Pointfuse on Jim Steinman’s ‘Bat out of Hell - The Musical’ when it made its West End... (read more)

NavVis Deploys SLAM to Automatically Remove Point Cloud Artifacts

NavVis, the Germany-based global provider of indoor spatial intelligence solutions for enterprises, has released new software for the NavVis M6 indoor mobile mapping system (IMMS) that automatically detects and removes dynamic objects and object fringe points from point clouds during the post-processing of scan data. Fringe points and dynamic objects are two common types of point cloud artifacts that affect all 3D laser scanning devices. Fringe points arise when a laser beam hits the edge of an object as well as its background. This scattered beam ultimately appears as a so-called fringe around the edge of the object in the...

Data Sharing is Smart – Geo-related Trends in Engineering & Construction

There could be many keywords representing important trends in the capture and use of spatial data in the engineering & construction industry, but 3D, BIM, AR and UAV are definitely high on the list. As this article examines, uniting them all is one major cross-industry challenge: interoperability and data integration in support of much-needed higher workflow efficiency in the whole value chain. The engineering & construction sector has been slower than most to adopt new technologies. While innovation may have occurred on the enterprise level, overall productivity in the market has remained almost flat for 50 years. In fact, labour... (read more)
