Creating Content From 3D Data

picture-1.pngLast week in the CyArk Visualization Internship, students learned how to create web-ready content from the 3D point cloud data. Using tools within Cyclone, students cut sections from the point cloud and created animated fly-throughs of the data. The sections were then exported into AutoCAD where they could be saved into dwf files to be viewed in a free viewer. Although created in Cyclone, the animations actually export as a video file and can be viewed on any computer.
The students were able to produce good results, especially considering this was only their third week using the High Definition Data. This third week of instruction marks the end of the data processing focus in the class, while this week will be the beginning of the data acquisition focus. Students will learn about field collection techniques and then apply their newfound processing skills to the real data they help collect.
