Geo Point Cloud Viewer

This project is an implementation of a novel technique for massive point cloud rendering on the Unity game engine. The project as a whole transforms a set of LAS files in any SRID recognized by the EPSG and generates a Unity scene in which the point cloud differentiates different point classes by color. It consists in two parts:

Model Generator

This Python program contains a preprocessing stage that structures the point cloud on a hierarchical structure designed for efficient out-of-core rendering.

The usage is defined as:

pc_model PC_MODEL_NAME [-h] [-d D] [-f F [F …]] [-o O] [-e E] [-n N] [-s S]

optional arguments:

 -h, --help    show this help message and exit 
 -d D          Folder with LAS files inside
 -f F [F ...]  Paths to LAS files
 -o O          Path to output folder (default wd)
 -e E          EPSG num (default 32631)
 -n N          Max points per node (default 65000)
 -s S          Subsample PC in parent nodes (default True)

For example:

pc_model PC_MODEL_NAME -f las1.las las2.las -d path/to/las/folder -o path/to/out -p 32631 -n MAX_POINTS_NODE -s True

Unity Renderer

Unity project that loads a pre-set point cloud model and renders it following the double material strategy described in our work published at Eurographics 2019.

@article{santana2019visualization, title={Visualization of Large Point Cloud in Unity}, author={Santana N{'u}{~n}ez, Jos{‘e} Miguel and Trujillo Pino, Agust{’\i}n Rafael and Ortega Trujillo, Sebasti{'a}n Eleazar}, journal={Eurographics technical report series}, year={2019} }

The Unity project contains a MonoBehaviour called PointCloudViewer which must reference to the folder created by the Model Generator in order to load the model. The PointCloudViewer also references a listener who handles point selection events. The technique shaders are prepared for Desktop platforms and has been tested on PC and Mac both for mono and stereoscopic rendering (VR).
