Carlson Point Cloud — Go from start to finished product

This webinar is presented by Scott Griffin, and was originally broadcast
on Feb 10, 2011. 
Yes, you can create a finished product from a point cloud. Scott Griffin of Carlson Software will show you step-by-step how to do this with Carlson’s new upgraded Carlson Point Cloud.

This modular program allows you to go from field scan to finished plat, all with seamless integration to Carlson Survey, Carlson Civil and Carlson Mining. Tune in to this webinar to see how Carlson PointCloud delivers a whole new level of powerful automation for large data sets, giving laser scanner users the ability to process millions of data points with Carlson Software ease-of-use.

Griffin will illustrate how to register your scan to local coordinates, filter or decimate the points, overlay photo images in 3D, snap to edges and code the descriptions for automated field-to finish processing of linework and symbols and create contours, profiles, sections, and breaklines. Learn how to read scan data from many instruments, view and process up to 1 billion points, and then perform the Field-to-Finish from the scanned data!
