About Point CloudsPoint clouds are created by 3D scanners. These devices measure a large number of points on an object's surface, and output a point cloud as a data file. The point cloud represents the set of points that the device has measured. The large number of data points results in a high information content; this allows for a quick and detailed depiction of complex objects.
In architecture it is used mainly for site measurements of buildings. This is especially interesting for older buildings that often do not exhibit any regular geometric features. Difficult to access objects such as facades and roof constructions can be efficiently dealt with using laser scanning.
