photoscan export dense cloud points: what kind of coordinates?
« on: September 12, 2016, 07:09:54 PM »
Hello,
I have to export dense cloud points from photoscan.

I found several way to export points (XYZ txt, ASCII pts, WaveFront OBJ), but what are the differencies between all of them?

thanks!

The differences are that they're different file formats being used by different software packages.

The one you choose depends on what you'll be using it for.

For instance you can export the points as a LAZ and open and view it in free software like 'CloudCompare' or 'Quick Terrain Reader'.
