AUSTIN, Texas -- Virtual Geomatics announced its PanoLiDAR Viewer;  a stand-alone tool, designed to visualize the LiDAR point cloud along with the 360 degree panoramic images collected by laser scanning systems. The overlay of point cloud and corresponding image helps the PanoLiDAR Viewer make accurate measurements and asset extraction. With the point cloud embedded, features in the image can be picked instantly.

The PanoLiDAR offers several features, including utilities to digitize line features, such as edge of pavements, road lines, fog lines, curb and gutter, and point features such as signs, lamp posts, fire hydrants, trees, manholes and more.

When using the PanoLiDAR, the user can import LiDAR in a native ECEF format and outputs from ESRI, Bentley and Autodesk products. Furthermore, the user can import a customized feature list for a specific deliverable, thereby reducing the processing time and increasing efficiency.
