Take your point cloud processing workflow to the next level

An industry-leading point cloud processing software for surveying, laser scanning and AEC professionals. Get started today with a swift, secure, and simple way to process NavVis data at scale.

Why NavVis IVION Processing?



Transforming raw scan data into final deliverables can be a time-consuming process. With NavVis IVION Processing, you can promptly process laser scan data captured using NavVis technology from anywhere with an internet connection. Easily set up and start processing multiple datasets onsite, ready for use when you are back in the office.

  • Save time by processing multiple datasets in parallel
  • Improve productivity and workflow efficiency by completing projects faster
  • Maintain a holistic overview of your project by viewing and validating every control point
  • Avoid last-minute issues by verifying control points and detecting errors early on
  • Ensure data privacy with a fully automated and integrated blurring functionality
  • Have peace of mind knowing your data is secure while being processed efficiently in the cloud

"Incredibly straightforward and a true time-saver. The convenience of the cloud allows us to process multiple datasets from any location."

Features of NavVis IVION Processing

Point cloud presets

From resolution and colorization, to more advanced presets like environment-specific point cloud modes, you can define your processing parameters to fit exactly what you need. Simply select the settings you need to achieve optimal results all while your data is uploading.

Thanks to our unparalleled software algorithms and filters, you can generate photorealistic point clouds that are automatically cleaned of dynamic objects while preserving original details and colors.

Geo-registration and control point validation 

Upload your geo-referenced control points file in a global coordinate system to automatically geo-register your point cloud. Double-check every control point in your dataset by viewing their exact location on the quality map.

An intuitive interface allows you to locate, verify, and select/deselect control points to identify any potential errors – all before processing begins.

Person blurring

Integrated blurring automates the image anonymization process for desired datasets, saving you the effort and time it typically takes to manually clean your data. With this feature, individuals' faces and bodies in images and point clouds captured using NavVis devices can be automatically detected and blurred. Users can then easily create and share GDPR-compliant projects that meet data confidentiality requirements.

Process in parallel

Unlock the true value of the cloud and process multiple datasets in parallel. Save time for the tasks that require individual attention and only wait as long as your largest dataset requires for processing. You can also download the dataset in different formats for use in other applications.


Quality Report generation

The Quality Report is a feature that enables users to download a comprehensive report following the post-processing of a dataset within NavVis IVION Processing.

This report addresses the essential need for documentation on quality evaluation, ensuring the integrity of scanned and processed areas using NavVis Reality Capture technology.

It provides surveyors and reality capture professionals with easy-to-access and detailed information on accuracy and other critical metrics, allowing them to assess the performance and precision of their scanning and post-processing activities effectively.

User-friendly Interface ICONUser-friendly interface

Uploading datasets has never been easier with the drag and drop functionality. Once the upload is complete, your processing tasks can be quickly set up to automatically start processing data. The live progress bar displays the percentage of data processed and the time remaining, allowing you to monitor the status of your processing tasks down to the minute.

Instant Notification ICONInstant notification

Set up processing tasks to notify the right people when they’re complete, so the processed data can be quickly and easily accessed as soon as it’s ready. The processed scan data is then ready to use directly in NavVis IVION.

Point cloud data processing simplified

1-processing-1Process wherever and whenever

Start, monitor, and finish processing tasks wherever and whenever you want, and reduce the time from the initial scan to final, usable data. When all that's needed is an internet connection, you now have the flexibility to upload and begin processing NavVis scan data directly onsite from any machine, without having to wait until you're back in the office.

efficiencyEfficiency where it matters

Complete scan projects faster and maximize productivity. Process multiple datasets in parallel and save valuable time and effort for the tasks that require individual attention. No need to wait until the upload is finished, users can configure the processing settings for an automatic start.

Person Blurring ICONSeamless data anonymization

NavVis is among the pioneers in providing a fully automated and integrated blurring functionality within its processing software. You can effortlessly blur faces and bodies in images and point clouds with a single click. This helps save time and eliminates the manual effort typically required to blur data.

Set-upEasy to set up and use

An uncomplicated workflow and user-friendly interface eliminate the need for extensive onboarding and training. Simply drag and drop datasets to upload them, and follow the straightforward steps to begin processing. Move processed data directly to NavVis IVION Dataset Management, or download the point cloud in .e57 or .ply format. This data can then be used in other applications further downstream in your workflow for activities like modelling.

safe-secureSafe and secure

With state-of-the-art cloud security and storage options, NavVis IVION has the right resources and technology dedicated solely to the task of protecting your data, even more than on-premise. Early threat detection and faster security updates ensure your data is and always remains secure.



"We work very often with sensitive data and in crowded places, therefore we take data privacy very seriously. Data privacy is very important for our clients as well. Within one of our projects, that we did in cooperation with NavVis, we mapped more than 1.2 million sqm of industrial facilities and acquired more than 110k panorama images. We had the privilege to use blurring feature in NavVis IVION for image anonymization in this project and all interested parties were very satisfied with the results."
