Rasters, photos and point clouds.
- Rasters can be orthoimages or digital surface DEM/DSM models (GeoTIFF, JPG+JGW, PNG+PGW, JP2,…)
- Photos can be geolocated planar photos or 360° panoramas with metadata (equirectangular .jpg + .csv orientations)
- point clouds can be created by photogrammetry or using SLAM, mobile, airborne or terrestrial/stationary collected point clouds (.las, .laz or .E57). We also support other point clouds, e.g. bathymetric point clouds, as long as they are in support formats.
No. Usually our customers capture and process their own drone data, or use subcontractors for that. We concentrate on handling and streaming data as a web services to all necessary project stakeholders. Although, we work closely with international drone and laser scanning service providers and can offer drone and laser scanning services on request.
No and yes! Pointscene software doesn’t do photogrammetric processing for drone captured raw photos. We provide the cloud service and middleware of handling and streaming drone data in a web browser or other software. We recommend using commercial drone photogrammetric modeling software (Pix4D, Agisoft Metashape, RealityCapture etc) for data photogrammetric processing. Here are sample videos of how to export data from these software into Pointscene use. We also can do the processing as a service for you.
We will soon offer processing capabilities using OpenDroneMap and Pointscene API.
Yes, after the files are converted to rasters (GeoTIFF,..).
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have support for drawing or other vector map layers.
Soon! Currently we don’t support IFC models, as we recommend integrating Pointscene data into your familiar IFC viewer software. The most popular software is Trimble Connect. If your software doesn’t support Pointscene web services, please contact email@example.com
We are working on a standalone viewer that supports IFC models too.
No. Pointscene Site has default settings and once the browser is refreshed, all layer and date option update to default. All users have the same default view once they open the site.
