Software Spotlight:

Let’s say, you have just began capturing your own LiDAR data.   Perhaps your company is grabbing floor plans or measurements with an iPhone or a tablet, or even better:  you are creating pointclouds that span city blocks or acres of woodland, using Terrestrial or Mobile LiDAR scanners, such as those produced by Emesent or GeoSLAM. Your team is familiar with either CAD or GIS, but you are starting to notice that the data you typically consume is a bit more formatted than the raw outputs from these devices...

Raster, Vector, AND Pointcloud Data.

Along with shapefiles and DTMs, these XYZs with scalar attributes are increasingly deployed in GIS. Simultaneously, pointclouds sent to  AR/VR or BIM applications are being moved ‘behind the scenes’, part of a trend towards concealing the pointcloud from end users. Both of these trends speak to the malleable nature of pointclouds and are the result of improved post processing methods for TLS, Mobile LiDAR systems, and Mobile Mapper/UAS derived data.

Before we continue this esoteric geometry/market trends discussion, I would like to introduce a company and software that is providing users with proficiency in both geometry and fulfilling client requests. It is with much excitement that The Map Lady LLC has entered an agreement with PointCab GmbH, based out of Stuttgart, to serve as the Master VAR and liaison to The United States and North America.

I have relied on Pointcab's programs since I started working with my own 'home-made" pointclouds. The visualization of data, extensive list of compatible file types, and automatic documentation of workflow in real time is unparalleled. As someone who has entered this arena from the 'GIS corner', I am impressed by how this software handles real-world coordinates with zero loss or distortion; processed pointclouds and resulting data, including .shp,.dxf, .dwg, and .rcp, all maintain their positions and spatial attribution. Admittedly, Origins Pro 4Revit was my initial foray into BIM, and I am grateful that I was able to learn through the lens of pointclouds and GIS.

These featured programs are the ultimate translator of Mobile LiDAR data. The outputs from Origins load into Autodesk or ESRI seamlessly and reports that include immersive perspectives and first person POV can be opened on any device in PDF form. Additionally, PointCab Share is included with all versions of Origins. Results are interoperable and with all of these  export options, most any stakeholder will be able to access, understand, and make decisions with the data

and information before them.The dots are already connected.

The Map Lady trusts that anyone looking to bridge the gap from their scanners' output to their existing BIM or GIS workflow, can make this connection with the PointCab Software suite. Our partnership with PointCab creates a direct channel to express the needs of the American Market directly to the team in Germany, and they are very receptive to client requests. Between the innovative PointCab team and The Map Lady's applied experience, we can get your pointcouds where you need them to be, and assure that your team can do so as well!

Pointcab can transform 3D pointclouds into a variety of file types that are more common and readily consumed by most anyone with a computer. This is done using tools within PointCab Origins, or Modules, that are also capable of providing reference, cloud to cloud registration, volumetric calculations and pre- formed reports, to name a few.
