Virtual Surveyor Enhances Lidar Point Cloud Handling

Virtual Surveyor has enhanced the Lidar elevation data handling capabilities in version 6.4 of its drone surveying and mapping software. The function enables users to select specific feature classes from classified Lidar point clouds before converting the point cloud to a surface terrain. “The latest upgrades in Virtual Surveyor 6.4 are designed to meet the needs of UAV users who are increasingly equipping their drones with Lidar systems,” said Tom Op ‘t Eyndt, CEO of Virtual Surveyor nv in Belgium. Virtual Surveyor bridges the gap between UAV photogrammetric processing applications and engineering design packages. The software generates an interactive onscreen... (read more)

Apple Furthers Point Cloud Feature Recognition

In a paper released on arXiv, Apple engineers Yin Zhou and Oncel Tuzel have detailed an end-to-end deep neural network solution for accurate feature recognition in point clouds. One way we currently perform feature recognition is to project the point cloud into a perspective view and apply image-based feature recognition techniques. Another approach is to rasterise the point clouds into a 3D voxel grid, and encode the features by hand (think of a voxel as a pixel in three dimensions instead of two). The first approach loses us some valuable depth information, and both create an extra step. According to the... (read more)

Pointfuse Launch Point Cloud Software for DotProduct Laser Scanners

DotProduct 3D handheld scanners can now produce 3D models at the touch of button following the release of Pointfuse for DP. A powerful meshing solution that offers a one-button approach to converting DotProduct scan data into lightweight, intelligent 3D models, Pointfuse for DP can potentially reduce output file sizes by tenfold, dramatically improving downstream workflows including solid modeling and Virtual Reality environments. Offering a “one button” approach, Pointfuse for DP not only converts DotProduct point clouds into 3D models with accurate geometry, but also enables the discrete mesh surfaces within the models to be isolated and manipulated in third-party CAD...

Pointfuse Point Cloud Software Transforms Design of Construction

Swanton Consulting has transformed the design of temporary works – such as façade and basement retention – using a software innovation that creates instant 3D models from laser scanner data. Processing of the millions of individual 3D laser scan measurements, known collectively as point clouds, used to take Swanton up to two weeks. However, since introducing Pointfuse V2 point cloud processing software, Swanton can now produce highly accurate vector models, suitable for immediate use by design engineers, in less than a day. Swanton Consulting specializes in the design of temporary works, deep basements, façade retentions, retaining walls, specialist structural elements... (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...

Laser Scanning Professionals Convert Point Clouds with NavVis Cloud

NavVis, a provider of indoor spatial intelligence solutions for enterprises, has announced the launch of NavVis Cloud, a new cloud-based platform that gives laser scanning professionals access to NavVis IndoorViewer as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. Fully immersive, web-based 3D buildings can now be delivered as part of every scan project using point cloud files from terrestrial laser scanners and the NavVis M6 Indoor Mobile Mapping system (IMMS). NavVis IndoorViewer is a web-based application that transforms data captured by laser scanners into fully immersive 3D buildings. With a few clicks, scan data is automatically structured into a basic model of the... (read more)
