Simplified 3D Surface Meshes from Terrestrial Laser Scans

  • Client: Powel AS, Norway
  • Date Completed: April 2016

3D surface reconstruction of laser scanned terrestrial objects like rock formations and tunnels.  Excess points are skipped by entering a parameter of resulting accuracy requirement, given by max distance from resulting surface to points in original point cloud.  Resulting in a strongly reduced size of the 3D surface mesh compared to the original point cloud.

Software: Gemini 3D Terrain

Uses the following CGAL modules:  3D triangulations, Advancing Front Surface Reconstruction, Point Set Processing, Hole Filling.
