is it possible to load lidar and pano data ( collected together) to load in cesium and view in 3D?
I have the same question.
Does cesium support buffergeometry or particle system like threejs to visualize point clouds please?
While we do not have out of the box support for point clouds yet; it is planned. Patrick’s pointGeometry branch on GitHub (https://github.com/AnalyticalGraphicsInc/cesium/tree/pointgeometry) has basic support but I believe he has bigger plans for it (which is why it’s not yet in main). You should be able to easily sync up to it on a fork and merge in master and use it. I believe we’ve loaded clouds as high as 65 million points with it; but I could be off on the number.
If you’re not familiar with how geometry is handled in Cesium I would check out http://cesiumjs.org/2013/11/04/Geometry-and-Appearances/ Write now we excel at static geometry, but dynamic buffer support is planned.
Patrick’s at SIGGRAPH all week but will hopefully chime in when he gets back.
Hope that helps
Matt is right for the most part. On a typical system, this will support 10-million static points, and you can write a custom vertex/fragment shader to attenuate their size or any other effect like blend based on distance.
