Micromine workflow using GeoSLAM point clouds

  • Importing data -Import the .las file into the software.
  • Previewing data – The view of the point cloud can be rotated in order to generate a solid wireframe.
  • Downsample tool – The imported file has 99 million points and, regardless of machine processing power, no 3D software will be able to manage this amount of data. The downsample tool effectively scales down the data without losing critical resolution.
  • Creating a view – Once imported and downsampled, the data can be viewed in a point Vizex form. From this form, the display properties and colour can be configured so that they are based on items such as ‘intensity’ or ‘RGB’ values.
  • Creating a solid and verifying – Using the ‘Point Cloud to Solid’ tool, Micromine can easily create solids or surfaces from complex point cloud data. The result will be a solid/surface wireframe than can be queried for volumetric and tonnages. Such wireframes can be used in Micromine for further studies into volumetric slicing, over and underbreak analysis, geologic modelling, face mapping and many more.
