LiDAR VR Viewer

Offers in-app purchases

LiDAR VR Viewer is dedicated to the visualization of point clouds and surfaces as an immersive experience through virtual reality. With a Bluetooth controller and a simple head-mounted display such as Google cardboard, it turns into a powerful tool to investigate and explore 3D data.

A scientific paper describing this app has been published in the proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Graphics, Visualization, Computer Vision and Image Processing (2017)

Features :
• Developed for virtual reality head mounted displays such has Google Cardboard
• All-native rendering utilizing OpenGL ES 2.0
• Supports point cloud ASCII files
• Colors the points from elevation, intensity or RGB values
• Supports point cloud with normals, rendered as surfel (work in progress)
• Supports point clouds up to few millions points (depends on the smartphone GPU)
• Supports surface mesh Wavefront .obj files
• Control camera movement with Blue-tooth controller or touchscreen
