ISPRS WG II/3

Point Cloud Processing

Our Mission

ISPRS Working Group II/3 addresses the development of new methodologies, algorithms and applications for point cloud processing. We address point clouds acquired by photogrammetry, LiDAR or other scanning technologies and a new class of ubiquitous 3D sensors. The processing includes low-level feature extraction, segmentation, classification, registration and fusion. We do so noting the recent explosion in data volumes. Therefore, the WG will promote the use of cloud computing and other big data techniques for massive data processing. The issue of high volumes of point clouds also requires new developments in point cloud rendering and streaming. Along with classic applications in mapping, point cloud processing for building information modelling (BIM) is a new application this WG is addressing.
