June 1st, 2016, Tokyo – On Wednesday 1st, Prof. Yoshiki Hori, Professor of History of Architecture and City Planning in Europe, from the Department of Architecture and Urban Design of Faculty of Human-Environment Studies of the Kyushu University (Japan), will present at SPAR Japan 2016 (www.sparj.com) his research activities in 3D laser scanning surveying of international archeological sites.
At the same conference Mr. Muramatsu Kiyoshishin, Gexcel Japan technical manager, will chair a workshop focused on the use of the main Gexcel software for laser scanning, JRC 3D Reconstructor®. The workshop will also introduce
«JRC 3D Reconstructor® has been specifically designed to align or register many datasets and large volumes of point cloud data automatically. I can say that the point clouds processing engine of JRC 3D Reconstructor® can be used to improve the performance of the whole laser scanning data processing, providing a familiar software environment and meeting the needs of laser scanning data elaboration.»
These are the considerations about JRC 3D Reconstructor® given to Gexcel Japan by Prof. Yoshiki Hori who has a long experience on the use of laser scanning for the documentation of ancient archeological sites around the world and, in particular, in Roman Archeological sites as Pompei and Ostia Antica in Italy.
Prof. Hori underlines that «Many dense and extensive datasets of point clouds, resulting in many gigabyte of data, usually require large amount of RAM and a high performance graphics cards, but the crucial stage remain the process known as cloud alignment or registration, which is done using targets, such as spheres or checker boards. As that process is inevitable in terrestrial laser scanning, we have to spend much time and effort to align or register datasets increasing their size during the post-survey process». Thanks to JRC 3D Reconstructor® now the data processing is faster than ever, in fact «In my laboratory a few under or graduate students used to captured more than 30 datasets per day and the pre-registration process could not be completed until the next morning. Actually they do not work more so hard with the software but just running the pre-registration command. JRC 3D Reconstructor® has become essential for the process of integration and management of many point clouds in different formats produced by Leica, Faro, Teledyne-Optech, etc.».
At SPAR Japan, Gexcel will also announce that, starting from 2016, has become the official representative of the SITECO RoadScanner Mobile Mapping System in Asia Pacific. Configurable with various sensors and Inertial Navigation Systems, RoadScanner4® and RoadScanner Compact® represent the right flexible choice for 3D mobile laser scanner surveying.
