3D POINT CLOUDS
3D models of a project can also be created from the point cloud. Objects recognized in photos from multiple camera locations are triangulated to determine its location in the three dimensions (X,Y, and Z). Colors are extracted from the images to create visually lifelike 3D models. Provided that accurate ground control is included during processing, the 3D Models are horizontally and vertically correct. Elevations of buildings and structures, utility pole and tower heights, low wire elevations can all be extracted from the model.
Fly-through videos of the point cloud can be created and are helpful in reports and presentations. The Point Cloud created by software can exported in a variety of popular formats for use in other software for further refinement and data extraction from the 3D model.
