CEBIT 2011: Fast 3D Site Survey for Urban Planning and Emergency Management
New results of the project CAPTURE  will be presented next week at the Cebit. The workflow of the 3D scanning is fast and simple: extremely high-definition spherical images are taken at different point in space, totally freely without any restriction; every detail is accurately documented and inherently present in the images. Indeed, post-processing allows accurately reconstructing the 3D geometry of the scene as a very dense and accurate colored point cloud. Measurements, simulations, scene inspection or emergency planning can be done within a novel 3D viewer, mixing high-resolution panorama views and 3D model.
