On the GIScience GITHub, two new tools are now available:
The Heidelberg LiDAR Operations Simulator HELIOS is a software package for interactive real-time simulation and visualization of terrestrial, mobile and airborne laser scanning surveys.
Own virtual scenes can be generated by combining for example terrain models with other objects (buildings, vegetation). Own scan positions as well as [...]

Not just LiDAR sensors, but also social media sources produce point clouds. We compiled two new visualisations showing spatiotemporal Twitter Tweet locations.
One of them is centered at Maracanã stadium during the football world cup 2014. The point cloud allows seeing various games that appear in the form of pronounced discs. In the centre of these [...]

The LIDAR Research Group (LRG) present a new release of LVISA: plotting out of the map.
Besides the 3D presentation of a selected tree, plots with respect to feature statistic as well as the comparison to corresponding tree species, family and class are now also available.
Who has not heard of LVISA:
LVISA is a novel [...]
