    Have you struggled with, “what do I do now that I have a point cloud?” It is a common question in the infrastructure industry. There’s an abundance of software that will assist in the post processing of point clouds into a working/usable format. If you have the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection, you have all you need. Using a "real-world infrastructure project," this class will walk you through the step-by-step process of post processing drone-collected photogrammetric data. Using products available within your AEC Collection (ReCap Photo software, ReCap Pro software, InfraWorks software, and Civil 3D software) surveyors and designers will be able to generate a working existing-condition drawing.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to upload images to ReCap Photo, and use ground control points (GCPs) to align images based on real-world coordinates.
    • Learn how to create a point cloud from drone-collected data.
    • Learn to import point cloud into ReCap and InfraWorks, create a surface, generate line work, and classify data.
    • Learn to export data from InfraWorks to Civil 3D and create a working existing-conditions drawing.
