Sharing Point Clouds

You can share data by inviting users to Pointscene and downloading the files, using our web service links or by sharing the standalone viewer links.

Our web service links are open source and software that support Potree solutions support our web services (pointscene.js & octree tiles). We also can serve the data as 3D-tiles that are supported on Cesium-based platforms.

Share point cloud with web service links

  1. Open your Site
  2. Go to Publish & manage data

3. If you want you can select your default application (Infrakit / Trimble Connect) from the top right corner. This selection will create the share-links in the right format for the convenience of the user. Point clouds will be shown at the bottom of the page below orthophotos. Turn the sharing on and copy link from the Copy link-button.

4. Add your link to your software.

Most cases your point cloud must be in the same coordinate system as your destination project dataset is in. In Infrakit the point cloud needs to be Web Mercator.

Share standalone viewer

You can create, observe and share standalone viewers that include point clouds and surface models (DSM, DTM, LandXML).

In Publish & manage data page, scroll down to Point clouds, turn the sharing button on and select the Copy 3D viewer link-button. Now you can send that link to anyone or open it your own browser to view all of the 3D data that you have on your site.
