April 20, 2017. Munich, Germany – NavVis, the global leader in indoor mapping, visualization, and navigation, announces the release of a new software feature that allows users to import, merge and view third party point clouds with the NavVis IndoorViewer.
The NavVis IndoorViewer was originally developed to stream and display the building data captured by the NavVis M3 Indoor Mapping Trolley as interactive 3D panoramic images and extremely large point clouds. Along with being able to view, route and move through the 3D scenes, users can add detailed building information to corresponding locations as points of interest and use the point-to-point measurement tool. The IndoorViewer software is browser-based giving it both the advantage of being accessible from any device as well as that of being easy to share electronically as a link.
The point cloud importing feature was developed to meet a growing customer demand to access the advantages of IndoorViewer when working with datasets captured by third party scanning devices. With this new IndoorViewer feature, users can now upload external building datasets to access all of the standard IndoorViewer features and tools. The new point cloud importer offers a number of additional advantages, including allowing users to link indoor and outdoor scans and link recently captured NavVis data to historical datasets recorded by traditional scanning devices. Datasets can be uploaded to the IndoorViewer from any device and all standard formats are supported.
To try out this new feature, please get in touch or check out the demo instance below.
Felix Reinshagen, CEO of NavVis, said:
“The NavVis IndoorViewer has transformed the way indoor digital data is viewed and used.
Viewing and modifying building models used to require a high level of skill and extensive training. Now anyone who needs to access and interact with building data can do so in just a few clicks, on any device.
The democratization of building models and information has been very well received by IndoorViewer users. We have subsequently had numerous requests for an importing function that would enable users to easily access building data captured by other scanning devices with the IndoorViewer. We are very pleased to have developed a product to meet this demand and look forward to enabling an even wider user base to access NavVis technology.”
