Download sections of large point clouds in a browser

Navvis IndoorViewer 2.5 will significantly extend the point cloud functionality through a new download feature that lets users select and crop sections of large point cloud files in browser, and then download and use the file in third party modelling software. The web-based 3D building visualisation software displays point clouds, 360° panoramic images and floorplans as realistic, fully immersive digital buildings. The intuitive interface and realistic 3D view have made it popular among building stakeholders who want to access and enrich laser scan data but lack the technical expertise to work with point clouds and advanced modelling software. For more advanced users working with point clouds to create 3D building models, the software serves as an online hub for accessing, streaming and managing point cloud files in browser. The online access and streaming addresses the challenges of storing and sharing point cloud files, which often contain large volumes of data. With NavVis IndoorViewer, users can upload scans from different devices and merge the datasets into a basic building model in just a few clicks. The merged files are uniformly displayed as a building point cloud and can be viewed as if users are on site, or from a top down perspective. Version 2.5 of NavVis IndoorViewer will be released in the third quarter of 2019.
