Bentley Systems Acquires Pointools

Bentley Systems has acquired UK-based Pointools Ltd, a hardware-neutral provider of point-cloud software technology, in order to integrate point-cloud processing throughout its product portfolio, thus facilitating information mobility with integrity across design and operational workflows.   Point-cloud scanning devices are fast becoming commonplace, so images are now cost-effective to capture, but have served only for temporary and task-specific purposes because the scale of the data files overwhelms both storage and query accessibility. Now that Bentley is uniquely overcoming these challenges, point-clouds, as a fundamental data type, can usefully serve the function of an "as-operated" 3D model for every infrastructure asset....
