Registration of point cloud data is an essential part of the processing workflow and determines the resultant quality of the combined data. However, it is only as good as the data captured.  In the traditional surveying workflow the scanning instrument is placed on a tripod on several pre-determined stations to ensure good coverage. The process…

Recent years have seen an increase in demand for detailed and accurate models of the built environment. To obtain a sufficient level of detail and accuracy in the modelling process, the model needs to be based on reliable measurement data. The preferred source of data for high-quality models are typically point clouds acquired through laser scanning. A typical choice of scanning hardware to achieve such high-quality models from accurate measurement data is a terrestrial laser scanner.…

Registering point cloud data is a key stage in the survey workflow and can have a significant impact on the time, cost and quality of a construction, design and build or surveying project. As an alternative to detecting artificial targets placed in the scene, features can be detected by analysing the point cloud to provide targets. Conventional point cloud processing software will…

This article presents a ground-breaking approach to generating survey data for a BIM process offered by the Vercator toolkit. Produced by a UCL spin-out company, Correvate, it touches on the robust automatic registration and smart object recognition technology that the company is developing for downstream analysis. In order to construct survey- grade 3D models of…

Registration is an essential step in point cloud processing that has a considerable bearing on the overall quality of the final combined dataset and any derived products, 3D models for example. When using static terrestrial laser scanning methods, it’s only possible to capture measurements of the environment that are visible from the scan device position, so…
