Visualising Point Clouds and Surfaces on the IQmulus Project

Presentation: Visualising Point Clouds and Surfaces on the IQmulus Project

HR Wallingford Exchange Forum, Howbery Park,19th July 2017

The IQmulus project addressed the challenge of taking geospatial point cloud and coverage data and interpreting it with functions such as interpolation, feature detection and change detection so that it could be more easily used for decision-making tasks. One key aspect of HR Wallingford’s role on the project was to investigate processing and visualising bathymetry datasets using the SeaZone holdings of bathymetry surveys. The purpose of this presentation is to describe and, where possible, demonstrate key visualisation applications developed at HR Wallingford.

IQmulus has also developed a novel software architecture and infrastructure for the efficient processing of large geospatial data in the Cloud, with novel tools for visual analytics, both web-based and client installed. The web-pages of the IQmulus Network of Competence Centres, www.iqmulus.eu, provides a comprehensive description of the IQmulus results. A demonstration system is available at http://iqmulus.eu/project-results/demos.


IQmulus received funding from the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme, grant number 318787.
