Software Package for Cloud Storage Development and Visualization of a Laser Scanning Point Cloud for Natural and Technical Systems

Abstract :

The paper presents an overview of trends in research and development in the field of laser scanning. The analysis of existing algorithms and methods for visualizing and storing the results of laser scanning and photography data is carried out. The features of methods for storing and visualizing the results of laser scanning and photography are revealed. A complex of high-performance algorithms for processing, storing and visualizing the laser scanning point cloud has been developed. Field and camera work was performed to obtain laser scanning data and take photos of cultural and historical heritage sites and road infrastructure. The features of data acquisition and further data processing of air, mobile and ground laser scanning are revealed. The system architecture and functional scheme were developed, and the software package was designed. On the basis of the developed set of algorithms, separate software modules of the software package were developed and their integration was performed. An experimental sample of the software package for cloud storage and visualization of laser scanning point cloud for natural and technical systems has been developed. Testing and refinement of an experimental sample of the software package for cloud storage and visualization of the laser scanning point cloud for natural and technical systems were performed.
