SimActive Enables Processing in the Cloud

Photogrammetry software developer SimActive has announced that processing in the cloud is now officially supported by Correlator3D. Users can subscribe to an online computing service, such as Amazon EC2, and run Correlator3D on a virtual machine.  Correlator3D is a patented end-to-end photogrammetry solution for the generation of high-quality geospatial data from satellite and aerial imagery, including UAVs. The main advantage of procesing in the cloud is the capability to use multiple licenses as required. It permits an on-demand deployment of the software on several processing machines, without any computer hardware. The new option allows customers to continuously adjust their processing...

RIEGL Launches iPad Point Cloud Viewer

RIEGL has introduced an app, called RiALITY, for Lidar data visualisation. The app allows users to experience Lidar data in a completely new environment and also allows easier Lidar data demonstrations through the use of an iPad. RiALITY features true-colour point clouds and 3D navigation as well as an Augmented Reality mode, which allows point clouds to be virtually projected into the real world. TheRiALITY app enables users to visualise and navigate through point clouds acquired with RIEGL laser scanners. As an example, users are able to explore a dataset of the Rosenburg Castle in Austria. RIEGL scans can also... (read more)

ColourCloud Processing Hosted on Google Cloud Platform

NCTech, a developer of reality imaging systems, has announced its ColourCloud software is being hosted on Google Cloud Platform. At the Google Cloud Next ’17 conference, Intel confirmed that the next-generation Intel Xeon processor family (also known as Skylake) is now available on Google Cloud Platform. Google Cloud Platform is the first to offer cloud services based on Skylake. The Intel Xeon processor supports Intel AVX-512 instructions to run compute-intensive workloads more efficiently, such as high-performance computing, video processing and data analytics. This development provides powerful support for the capture and processing of 3D imaging. With ColourCloud now hosted on Google... (read more)

Rx Networks Announces Release of XYBRID Cloud

Rx Networks, the Canada-based mobile location technology company, has announced the upcoming release of XYBRID Cloud 1.0, scheduled for release on 1 May 2013. XYBRID Cloud is a hosted GNSS that applies the power of cloud processing to determine a location even when only a few snapshots of weak GNSS signals are available. Particularly well suited for the machine-to-machine (M2M) market, XYBRID Cloud can enable indoor devices like routers, small cells, and other infrastructure to become location-aware. Once devices know their location, this information can be used as a reference to other devices, such as smartphones for indoor positioning. By... (read more)

Pipe Modelling from Point Cloud Data

Elysium, an emerging Japan-based provider in the point cloud data industry, has released a new version of InfiPoints. Version 2.0 highlights enhancements such as pipe modelling and video generation from point cloud data consisting of billions of points. The company has recently been expanding its portfolio from CAD data translation and processing to point cloud rendering technologies. Pipe modelling from point cloud data is one of the key features and enhancements of InfiPoints that provides a competitive advantage for both time and accuracy. Without this capability, it is very time consuming to model piping elements from point cloud data as... (read more)

Time for Point Cloud-based BIM Models?

Why base the terrain model in infrastructure projects on 'old' contour maps when you can get a fresh and more accurate representation of the terrain based on laser scanning? That's the question posed by Håkon Andresen, business developer at Blom, a European service provider of surveying, processing and modelling of geographic information. This is a timely question since the laser scanning technology and modelling technology is fully available. In fact, most large-scale mapping projects in Scandinavia today produce point cloud models using laser scanning from aircraft. Yet, most often it is traditional contour maps that are still being used in... (read more)
