Reality capture

Create point clouds using data from LIDAR (light detecting and ranging) scanning. Use point cloud tools to import and visualize point cloud information; stylize point data based on LAS classifications, RGB, elevation, and intensity; use data to create surfaces; perform site surveys; and digitize as-built features for civil engineering design projects. You can create Civil 3D surfaces from point cloud data.

  • Create TIN surfaces from point cloud files created with ReCap reality capture software (US site)
  • Generate surfaces from one or multiple point clouds
  • Select specific areas within point clouds
  • Use filtering options to delineate ground and non-ground points
Use point cloud tools to import and visualize GPS surveying information
