Demystify the Point Cloud – So Much More Than a Surface Model
May 7th, 2013 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
The annual Hexagon conference provides the unique opportunity to showcase our latest innovations to nearly 4,000 users. While many of our sessions focus on product training, we also provide key insights into new innovations and unlock key secrets that allow our users to fully leverage geospatial data.
While there is increasing adoption of point cloud data, many users struggle to fully integrate this new content in their workflows. An important realization is that point clouds are much more than simple surface models – and should be treated as such. The difficulty lies in fully exploiting the depth of information that can be derived from point cloud content.
On Monday, June 3rd during HxGN LIVE 2013, we will be providing a unique training session that will offer more clarity around how to best leverage point clouds:
Demystifying the Point Cloud: So Much More Than a Surface Model (4 hrs)
For years, the adoption of point cloud data has grown tremendously. This course is designed to take you beyond the basics of point cloud data and teach you how to get the most out of this incredibly rich data source. Learn about the various types of point cloud data created and exploited by Hexagon products – from traditional airborne LiDAR, to the growing power of terrestrial laser scanners from Leica Geosystems, to the photogrammetric true ortho point clouds created by Semi-Global Matching in ImageStation®. We will demonstrate 3D and profile visualization and measurement of all these point cloud data types, as well as perform editing, classification, and exploitation of point cloud data in GIS and remote sensing software like GeoMedia® and ERDAS IMAGINE.
In the weeks leading up to HxGN LIVE 2013, we will be doing a series of “sneak peek” blog posts about events and trainings to come. As we mentioned before, please be sure to sign up for the training classes now – seats are filling quickly!
