Introduction to Geoverse Massive Data Manager
Geoverse Massive Data Manager is a revolutionary new geospatial software offering that slashes the hardware costs behind storing, displaying, and interacting with the complex data sets generated by 3D laser scanning and photogrammetry. The popularity of 3D data is growing thanks to the falling costs of the technology required to scan in objects and areas. However, the falling costs of scanning hardware are contrasted with the rising storage and COMPUTATIONAL costs of the data that is being generated. As the demand for detail rises, traditionally, so did the hardware costs associated with storing and visualising it. Geoverse Massive Data Manager point cloud rendering is based on Euclideon’s revolutionary Unlimited Detail (UD) technology. This technology is able to handle the vast amounts of LiDAR data — which can be produced at rates of up to two million points per second — in a way previously unimaginable on normal computers.
Unlimited detail, unlimited potential
Geoverse Massive Data Manager, based on Euclideon’s Unlimited detail technology, has created a whole new way of compressing, visualising, and interacting with point cloud data that not only reduces the datasets down to 5-20% of their original size, but also removes the need for dedicated 3D cards or powerful CPUs to display it – no matter what the size or detail of the dataset. Traditionally, 3D models had to be stored on every computer that they were required to run on. Euclideon, after creating a way to instantly stream data from a hard drive or USB stick, has created a way to stream 3D data to multiple users from a central server or computer. Geoverse Massive Data Manager offers features targeted toward the way that the geospatial industry uses point cloud data, including the ability to: – Create annotated presentations with bookmarks and labels; – Take measurements at the precision of the data set; – Overlay data onto base maps, including OpenStreetMap and Bing Street, Aerial & Hybrid.
Geoverse Massive Data Manager for Smarter Enterprise
By removing the restrictions imposed by polygons, and opening up the possibility of unlimited detail unrestricted by hardware processing requirements, many new and exciting applications are made possible. Shrinking datasets now means that companies have the ability to store between five and twenty 3D models for every one stored previously. This means that frequent historical archives are now possible, as is running more regular 3D surveys. For instance, mine sites could use the technology to regularly survey lodes, roads, or landscapes for changes over time. Due to the instant rendering capabilities, as well as the ability to access and view 3D visualisations out in the field on a basic laptop, Emergency Managers can now rapidly assess a site, and make informed decisions for the best way to handle a bushfire, landslide, or other crisis. With 3D models now able to be streamed over the internet, remote staff can interact with a site as if they were really there, from anywhere in the world. For instance, architects or construction managers can consult on and plan for a site without having to take the time to travel there. Take part in discussions based on features that really exist, without ever having to leave the office. The low CPU requirements of the technology makes it possible for stunning, representative 3D visualisations to find their way onto integrated devices. For example, a personal navigation device could show users a true-to-life visualisation of an intersection as they approach it. Having true-to-life, unlimited detail also opens up the possibility of scanning precious historical artefacts, sites, or other objects for future research or posterity. Artefacts could be studied without risking damage, and by researchers located anywhere in the world.

Setting the Spatial Industry free
Computer power doubles every 4 years, but computer storage goes up 200 times every four years. The world has moved from megabytes to gigabytes (1000 megabytes) then from gigabytes to terabytes (1000 gigabytes), and already we are hearing the word “Petabyte” (1000 terabytes). LIDAR is one of the biggest users of memory as mobile LIDAR produces between 1 and 2 million points every second. Because computers are not able to handle such vast amounts of data using existing techniques, Euclideon came up with an alternative way. Euclideon has solved some of the biggest limitations facing users of point cloud data, saving time and money, increasing productivity, and changing the ways that it can be used, forever.
