Unlocking the Power of Point Clouds_Tony Kent - Intergraph Geospatial World Tour 2013

  1. 1. Point Clouds – What’s the point? Tony Kent Applications Engineer IMGS SMARTERDECISIONS
  2. 2. Point Clouds from.. • • • • • • Lidar Data sources are the growing accurate data of choice Photogrammetry remains quick and inexpensive Drones are on their way Data volumes – MASSIVE No. of applications driven from this data – HUGE Industries benefit from this data – GROWING The Intergraph Portfolio picks up the data processing and management process at all levels. Focus here is on IMAGINE.
  3. 3. Lidar Acquisition Terrestrial LiDAR Fixed-wing LiDAR Mobile LiDAR Rotary-wing LiDAR
  4. 4. Point clouds in the coming years • Data accuracy will continue to increase (improved GPS) • Volume will grow substantially • Expectation of access to and ability to work with this data will increase • Its less than 8 years since the first Lidar data was collected by OSi in Ireland • Current coverage is 45% with 30% processed to DTM 8/29/2013 ©2013 Intergraph Corporation 4
