Frequently Asked Questions

A point cloud map is a three-dimensional representation of a physical space. It consists of points in space, usually generated by lasers, that are clustered together to create a mesh. This mesh can be used to generate a variety of maps, including topographical maps, cityscapes, and even 3D models of buildings. Point cloud mapping is an increasingly important technology for engineers and students who need to understand physical spaces.

Point cloud maps can be generated from laser scans, sonar scans, or photogrammetry. They are often used in engineering and architecture projects, as well as in land surveying and 3D printing

A wide variety of industries use point cloud mapping, including but not limited to: the construction industry, civil engineers, and architectures.  Point cloud map’s detailed representation of real-world objects and terrain make its applications more and more popular
