Point Cloud import?

Recommended Posts

Backing up Gester (and the link), I think most of these are based on the proprietary system/equipment that is used by the surveyor.

For the projects I have had this available, the system was by Leica, and had no Mac (or Vw) plugins to be able to view the survey. Leica has a PC app to view the overall point cloud accompanied by a panorama photo of each survey scan location, which is helpful (if you are PC based).

The surveyor had a draftsperson modelling the existing geometry from the generated point cloud on AutoCAD, I believe via a Leica plugin. The only reason this was feasible in our case, was due to the remoteness of the site, the terrain angle being at 52?, and negating the surveyor having to revisit the site.

Back to the point could file, maybe if NV partnered with Leica, we might be able to get around this in Vw. Is there an open standard for this kind of data?
