Checklist before uploading data

  1. You have data and you know the data type
    • Data types:
      • Point clouds in LAS, LAZ, E57 format, in projected Coordinate Reference System
      • Raster data: Ortho-Mosaics, elevation data (DTM, DSM,..) in GeoTIFF, jp2, jpg or png format, projected Coordinate Reference System
      • Original drone images (Geo-tagged)
      • 360 images (Images as “equirectangular 2:1 ratio”, JPG format and orientations as CSV (contact for more info))
      • If you have other data (e.g. vector data), contact support@pointscene.com to get help uploading it. We can add some other data formats (DXF, SHP, DWG… and other “open” formats) manually to your site.
  2. You have done preprocessing to your data
    • Data types:
      • Point clouds can be cleaned and classified
        • you can upload multiple files at once. In this case they will be merged together to be one layer.
      • Rasters must be geolocated or have a known XYZ shift.
        • You can upload only ONE raster at a time. Merge rasters beforehand if needed (open source options: QGIS, GDAL Merge,…)
  3. You know the data’s coordinate system and the EPSG code. Code numbers are listed at epsg.io.
  4. Make sure the data files are named rationally. The names cannot be changed after uploading.
  5. You need to have the Editor or Owner role in the Site to be able to upload. Site Owner or support can help if you are not.

Note! Pointscene is happy to help you with your data. The system is developing all the time, so we will support more and more data types as time goes by! Contact us if you have any problems!
