Advanced Processing for 3D Imagery

Make the most of your reality modeling data with the ability to integrate point clouds, reality meshes, scalable terrain models, and raster imagery into your infrastructure workflows. 

With Descartes you can extend your capabilities to extract value from reality modeling data of any scale through the ability to:
  • Visualize and manipulate its display 
  • Combine it with CAD, BIM, and GIS data 
  • Extract information like terrain models 
  • Edit and clean up reality modeling data

  • Classify reality meshes

    • Enrich reality meshes with additional information by associating BIM or GIS data, providing the ability to subsequently search and visualize regions of a reality mesh based on the associated data.
  • Convert raster documents to vector drawings

    • Preserve and exploit your scanned documents and drawings. Work in hybrid workflows using raster and vector editing, cleanup, and processing tools to vectorize legacy documents.
  • Create animations, videos, and fly-throughs

    • Produce high-resolution orthographic and perspective images by rendering snapshots of any size. Set image size and scales using output rulers, scale, and positioning for accurate reuse. Take advantage of the intuitive time-based fly-through and object animation system for quick and easy movie production.
  • Create high-fidelity images

    • Use high-fidelity imaging tools to support precision mapping and engineering. Combine imagery in virtually any format and projection.
  • Create scalable terrain models

    • Use and display very large terrain models to increase return on investment on large datasets. Display scalable terrain models in a variety of modes, such as smooth shading with shadows, aspect angle, elevation, slope, contours, and more. Synchronize terrain models with source data such as DGN files, point-cloud data, and more.
  • Model geometry from reality modeling data

    • Extract break lines, paint lines, surfaces, planes, cylinder, and cylinder center lines from reality models. Efficiently clip and section point cloud and reality meshes to streamline vector extraction.​
  • Process raster images

    • Use raster processing to add visualization and context to your infrastructure projects. Take advantage of immediate editing of raster data to improve the quality of your project deliverables. Lower costs associated with data maintenance by readily using legacy raster drawings in your workflow.
  • Visualize, manipulate and edit reality modeling data

    • Visualize and edit point clouds with billions of points, changing their classification, color and removing or editing points. Manipulate reality meshes and scalable terrain models with hundreds of millions of triangles. Import, retouch, and export meshes in many formats.
