Visit Hugh’s world of panoramas …

A site that is being developed to relate specifically to panoramic photography to show the potential of this media and how it is able to convey much more than words or single images.

If a picture is worth a thousand words then a panorama must be worth ten thousand, especially a 360° (or spherical) panorama where you can look all around and in any direction you wish to.

Using 360° iSTAR Panoramas to add Detail to an HDS Point Cloud

Using 360° iSTAR Panoramas to add Detail to an HDS Point Cloud

Real world colour can be added to the points in a Point Cloud from co-centric 360° (spherical) panoramas and some users have found that it is also beneficial to take additional 360° panoramas.  This task takes this one stage further and uses 360° panoramas to add detail to a survey initially made with an HDS Scanner.

   
Panoramas for Colouring HDS Point Clouds

Using Panoramas to add Colour to HDS Point Clouds

The "native" colours for an HDS (High Definition Survey) point cloud are based on the reflectivity of the surface the measurement is made to and are determined by the intensity of the received reflected laser beam.  Whilst this information is useful in its own right it is often desirable to have the points with their “natural” (RGB) colours.  This is an overview on using 360° Panoramas to add natural colour to an HDS Point Cloud.
