Mobile LiDAR / Point Cloud Veiwer

Cover art
Just a quick post on something I found just in time for AGU, a mobile LiDAR / Point Cloud viewer app for Android (Google Play). I've been searching for an app like this since I started creating 3D datasets.

It works best with LAS files, which for Structure-from-Motion point cloud data you can export LAS files from CloudCompare. It seemed to have a problem with UTM coordinates (probably to a decimal precision cut off), but if you export the data in a "local" coordinate system it works beautifully. I also tried it on some OpenTopography LiDAR data and it works just fine.


  1. It’s really very important information on lidar survey, Thank you so much for your valuable time to write this important information for us.

  2. Thanks for providing amazing article. Pointcloud Vancouver, BC uses 3D laser scanning technology to give you an accurate model of existing assets through the full life cycle of your project.
