Tag Archive '3D Point Cloud'

Did you ever consider planning and testing your LiDAR campaign in a computer simulation? Would you like a flexible means to generate 3D point cloud data for developing or testing methods? This is easily possible with the laser scanning simulation framework HELIOS (Heidelberg LiDAR Operations Simulator).
There have been major new developments since the first version [...]

Digital outcrop models provide a powerful data basis to obtain orientation information on rock masses. Robust and transferrable automatic methods are required to process and analyze these data, as outcrops and hence acquired 3D point clouds are influenced by varying conditions depending e.g., on the site, atmospheric conditions and other factors. A crucial aspect in [...]

We are happy to announce that a new JAVA-based tool is available that allows extracting raw GPS data from the OpenStreetMap GPS planet file. The tool is under LGPL license. It allows to specify a bounding box and to export the extracted data to 3D-Shapefiles. Besides the full GPS planet file there are also regional [...]

GPS data uploaded to the OpenStreetMap servers is a popular example of what is called Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI). The data has been (and is still) collected by the project contributors primarily to support mapping. As the inclusion of roads and paths in the map is a major goal of the project, [...]
