Storing, serving, and seeing: simplified.
Geoverse Convert solves all these problems, by compressing data down to 5-20% of its original size – without degrading quality – and enabling it to be viewed in the Geoverse View package in less than a second – no matter how large the data is, or if it’s coming from a hard drive, flash drive, local server, or the internet. Currently the following formats are accepted: UDS, OBJ, BIN, e57, LAS, LAZ, FLS, PTS, PLY, PTX, XYB XYZ/TXT and LlargBin. The four major benefits to converting data to the compressed Euclideon format are: • You can run and interact with models of unlimited size • Loading times have been reduced to less than a second for any size data model • The model can be stored in one place in your building and all can access it • Storage compaction to between 5-20% of original .LAS size
Unlimited size, unlimited detail
With Euclideon’s Unlimited Detail technology, the loading times and speed of performance are unrelated to the size or resolution of the model displayed. This means that you can have unlimited detail – imagine being able to fly through and visualise, in real time, every square cm of your local area, mine site, or other are of interest, no matter how large a geographic area it spans.
Compression without decimation
Only duplicate data is removed during the compression process, ensuring that your data is as representative of the real world as the day that it was captured. Smaller data files also means that storing historical archives of surveyed areas is now cheaper and easier, allowing for accurate change detection and analysis. Loading times are no longer a problem, as they have been reduced to less than a second, no matter the source or size of the model. Previously, visualising complex models required fast computers with large amounts of RAM, and could often take up to 30 minutes to load. Euclideon’s compression technology and efficient search algorithm not only remove this painful and inefficient waiting period, but also reduces hardware costs, as even the most basic computer and sluggish network can load the models without breaking a digital sweat.
Streaming over any network
With other current 3D models, it’s not possible to stream the vast quantity of data over a network. So, any user that requires access to the model needs a local copy installed on their computer. Installing these models on individual computers takes time, and requires each computer to have large amounts of hard drive space. With models often running into terabytes in size, this is not an insignificant cost. Now, however, Geoverse View makes it possible to stream a single model to multiple users, and because the Geoverse View natively handles the compressed point-cloud data – meaning that there is no need to decompress it before visualising it – there is no need to install an expensive, high-bandwidth network link between the server and clients. Immersive, 3D presentations are now possible, even in that meeting room with the stubborn WiFi connection, or directly from a USB drive at a client’s office. In fact, models can even be streamed over the internet, without the need for a browser plugin.
