On-Demand Webinar: Point Cloud Basics

The ability to capture high-definition point clouds with a high-precision total station in a familiar survey workflow is making it easy for firms to expand their services. Point clouds captured with the MS50 do not require registration; the scans are essentially registered in real time and can be adjusted just like the data from a total station, giving you additional insight into specific areas of your project. But what else can you do with the point cloud? What’s the best way to leverage this data to add value for you and your clients?

In this on-demand webinar recorded on Dec. 11, 2014, Shannon Hixon and James Johnston show you some basic tips for using your MS50 scan data. In this 60-minute webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How to set up, scan and integrate a scan and topo combination
  • How to use the data in the field
  • How to clean the data to remove unwanted elements
  • How to pull the data into AutoCAD Civil3D, Leica Infinity or MicroSurvey CAD for drafting and modeling
  • How to manage multiple point cloud datasets
  • How to share scan data with clients in a way that adds value to your business
