Ron0987 Posted August 28, 2014 Report Share Posted August 28, 2014 Hi, I am looking for help or information on other users that have attempted to incorporate photogrammetry and laser scanner data/point clouds. My back ground is in forensics and have been using photogrammetry for awhile. We have just started using a 3D laser scanner and I am attempting to incorporate both files by converting the photogrammetry into a dense point cloud with a PTS or LAS file format output. I would like info on anybody that has experience with converting a file like OBJ into a PTS or LAS file. What I would like to find is a photogrammetry software that produces a dense point cloud in one of these file formats. I have found several that do this and the point cloud is great for small objects but not as good for a project the size of a building. Catch 123D does great but only has an OBJ output, which goes to my original questions does anybody have information on a good conversion software that will take all the file information including colors to a point cloud format. Any and all help would be great . The reason I need this is officers take initial photos on there arrival. These photos include evidence and items as they see it on first arrival. I can take several other photos if needed to complete a photogrammetry project, but cannot export this with dense point cloud data to import into a point cloud that I scan after everything has been moved. If you have any questions please ask. Ron Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
