Dive into the point cloud!

(26.02.2014)

Great news: We proudly announce our new iPad point cloud viewer RiALITY, now available for free in the iTunes App Store.

This new, innovative App, the first of its kind, allows users to experience LiDAR data in a completely new environment. It also allows easier LiDAR data demonstrations through the use of an iPad.

The App enables users to visualize and navigate through point clouds acquired with RIEGL laser scanners. As an example, users are able to explore a dataset of the beautiful Rosenburg Castle in Austria. RIEGL scans can also be imported from RiSCAN PRO software into the App, as well.

“We’re pleased to present a new way of visualizing point clouds. RiALITY delivers this new technology by providing Augmented Reality technology in an easy-to-use app. Now you can easily send your client a 3D point cloud that they can visualize on their iPad, for free.” says Ananda Fowler, RIEGL’s manager of terrestrial laser scanning software.

RiALITY features true color point clouds and 3D navigation. In a breakthrough technological development, the app features an Augmented Reality Mode. The Augmented Reality Mode allows point clouds to be virtually projected into the real world.
