With the recent purchase of the Leica nova, we are now able to collect point clouds as data.
A point cloud is a set of data points in a coordinate system.
In a three-dimensional coordinate system, these points are usually defined by X, Y, and Z coordinates, and often are intended to represent the external surface of an object.
Point clouds may be created by 3D scanners. These devices measure in an automatic way a large number of points on the surface of an object, and often output a point cloud as a data file. The point cloud represents the set of points that the device has measured.
As the result of a 3D scanning process point clouds can be used to create 3D CAD models. We can offer a complete model of an existing building or provide the cloud of points for your own manipulation.
