Rapid Generation of 3D GIS Content from Reality Capture Data Sources
Track: Architecture, Engineering, and Construction
Authors: Keir Keightley
A flexible method for rapid generation of 3D data from point cloud to 3D Web Service is described using a collection of open source software, mainstream software and ESRI ArcGIS/ArcGIS Online. This process generates data that can be edited, analyzed and visualized in 2D and 3D using the standard complement of spatial analysis tools supplied by ESRI ArcGIS. Examples of built environment and natural environment are showcased to illustrate the flexibility for reality capture and as-is modeling.
