3D Point Cloud Editor *Sample data sources: USC lidar simulator, the Stanford 3D scanning repository and liblas.org. Overview The point cloud editor is a software supporting a set of features for visualizing and editing point clouds with a large number of points. The visualization functionalities include: Input file format supported: .xyz, .las. Cloud rotation. RiSCAN PRO RiSCAN PRO is the companion software for RIEGL Terrestrial 3D Laser Scanner Systems. RiSCAN PRO is project orientated, i.e., the entire data acquired during a measurement campaign are organized and stored in RiSCAN PRO's project structure. These data include scans, fine scans, digital images, GPS data, coordinates of control points and tie points, and all transformation matrices necessary to transform the data of multiple scans into a common well-defined coordinate system. RiSCAN PRO is designed to optimize the acquisition workflow in the field and provides the tools for visual inspection of overall completeness of data coverage in 3D right after acquisition. In addition to data acquisition it provides a variety of functions for data processing.
15-463: Computational Photography INSTRUCTOR:Alexei (Alyosha) Efros (Office hours: Tuesdays 5pm-6pm, EDSH 225)TA: Marynel Vázquez (Office hours: Wednesdays 10am-11am, NSH 4227)UNIVERSITY UNITS: 12SEMESTER: Fall 2012WEB PAGE: Piazza Course WebsiteLOCATION: GHC 5222TIME: T R 12:00--1:20 PM COURSE OVERVIEW: Computational Photography is an emerging new field created by the convergence of computer graphics, computer vision and photography. Its role is to overcome the limitations of the traditional camera by using computational techniques to produce a richer, more vivid, perhaps more perceptually meaningful representation of our visual world. The aim of this advanced undergraduate course is to study ways in which samples from the real world (images and video) can be used to generate compelling computer graphics imagery.
Plugins - CloudCompareWiki From CloudCompareWiki openMVG: "open Multiple View Geometry" "open Multiple View Geometry" is a library for computer-vision scientists and especially targeted to the Multiple View Geometry community. It is designed to provide an easy access to the classical problem solvers in Multiple View Geometry and solve them accurately. The openMVG credo is: "Keep it simple, keep it maintainable". OpenMVG targets readable code that is easy to use and modify by the community. All the features and modules are unit tested. This test driven development ensures that the code works as it should and enables more consistent repeatability.

The Stonex Reconstructor software is based on the well known JRC 3D Reconstructor ® technology. JRC 3D Reconstructor® is a software package worldwide appreciated for 3D laser scanner data processing in several application fields. Description The software – engineered and powered by Gexcel srl, under Stonex requirements - comes from the convergence of two experiences: the academic know-how of University studies and the applied research achievements of the European Joint Research Centre (JRC), located in Ispra (Italy). The software aim is to turn the latest scientific achievements in the Geomatics field into an hi-tech software for wide application areas.
