Storing, serving and seeing: simplified
As anyone who has used LiDAR or other point-cloud data before can attest, the datasets generated are typically large, cumbersome, and difficult to visualise or work with. This makes them of limited use outside of dedicated teams and engineering groups.
View and Navigate in real time
Geoverse Massive Data Manager is based on Euclideon’s revolutionary Unlimited Detail (UD) technology. This engine is able to handle vast amounts of LiDAR data – up to and beyond two million points per second – in ways previously unimaginable on consumer PCs.
Geoverse Massive Data Manager frees the spatial industry from the need for dedicated 3D cards or powerful CPUs to display – no matter the size or detail of the dataset being rendered. Even more than that, Geoverse Massive Data Manager allows professionals to stream their data from a networked server instantly. This allows for a central, convenient repository for all your business’ datasets.
opening the door to revolutionary new applications
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 become possible. Shrinking datasets now mean 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.
MDM only supports UDS and SSF SOLIDSCAN files. Please see Geoverse Convert for details on converting your preferred data set files to UDS.
Benefits of UDS
- Interact with models of unlimited size
- Loading times of less than a second for any sized data set
- The set can be stored centrally for shared access
- Storage compaction between 5-20% of original .LAS size
