Point Cloud (LIDAR) Processing Demonstration

Point Cloud (LIDAR) Processing Demonstration

In this demo, see how to view point clouds (LIDAR) data in 2D and 3D, add pyramid and spatial indices to multiple files through batch processing. Also view how to merge .las files, create a subset area of interest, and then classify, filter and RGB encode the point cloud data.

Hidden History – Lidar 3D Mapping

Hidden History – Lidar 3D Mapping

Archaeologists have discovered more than 3,000 historical sites and monuments in the New Forest thanks to Lidar (Light Detecting and Ranging). The technique beams harmless lasers into the ground to build a 3D map, revealing the hidden history of the New Forest including a Roman road and prehistoric pits and mounds. The discoveries have been made thanks to the Verderers ...
