Delivering point clouds to your client?
I’m looking for a better (more useful to them) way to deliver point clouds to my clients. Right now we typically send them the .las via dropbox with instructions on how to download CloudCompare. We’re hoping they go to the trouble of doing that and even then, what can they really do with it?
I recently came across Potree, it allows a user to upload their data set to a web server and then send a link that some can access that pulls up the point cloud and allows them to cut X-sections, pull heights, areas, volumes, angles, distances, ect. I see it being useful if the client had a quick question like, what’s the approx. height of this building or this tree canopy, or the area of this gravel driveway or volume of this pile, ect.
I still haven’t figured out how to upload the data to a web server, this is all pretty new to me, if anyone has advice on that front I’m all ears.
Does anyone use this? Or do you have a different method for delivering point clouds in this kind of format to your clients that may be better?
