2nd crowd funding on LiDAR point cloud support and profile tool

Following the successful 1st LiDAR crowd-funding campaign in 2020 (results were made available with QGIS 3.18 and 3.20), a 2nd crowd-funding campaign is planned for the display and analysis of point cloud (LiDAR) and 3D geometry data, including an interactive profile tool.

Following the successful 1st LiDAR crowd-funding campaign in 2020 (results were made available with QGIS 3.18 and 3.20), a 2nd crowd-funding campaign is planned for the display and analysis of point cloud (LiDAR) and 3D geometry data, including an interactive profile tool

  • a very flexible and powerful profile tool for 2D and 3D data and views, including LiDAR and 3D geometry data
  • filter tools for LiDAR data over arbitrary attributes
  • Eye-Dome rendering effect for more beautiful representations of point clouds in the 2D view
  • Support of the COPC format (cloud-optimized point clouds)
  • Support of additional LiDAR formats via PDAL library
  • Improvements in the 3D view (e.g. saving of the last exited view)

As in the last campaign, the 3 companies LutraConsulting, Hobu and North Road want to cooperate for these further improvements. The goal is to raise 75'000 € through worldwide supporters. More details and registration for financial contributions can be found at the crowd-funding campaign website of LutraConsulting.

The QGIS User Group Switzerland supports the project with 4'000 €. We would be happy if other organizations and companies in Switzerland could support the project as well! Thank you for your support!
