Gexcel Imaging Software Inroduces PixR³ for 3D Point Cloud Extraction from UAV and Terrestrial Camera Images Print E-mail
Written by Gexcel Srl   
Wednesday, 09 April 2014

9th April, 2014, Brescia, Italy — Gexcel Srl, at the 2014 Faro User Meeting (Germany, 3-4 April), has released the new PixR³ software, suited to extract 3D colored point clouds and meshes from images.

In step with the path of the latest technologies 3D laser scanning and photogrammetry, Gexcel Srl has released the new PixR³ software package (R³ family) to automatically create 3D point clouds and meshes from images taken from terrestrial, mobile or UAV/airborne platforms. PixR³ can manage limitless images (according to the PC's memory) and extract 3D information thanks to a fully automatic process.

The 3D output (point clouds and meshes) can be easily geo-referenced and further processed into JRC 3D Reconstructor® and PointR³:

PixR³ + JRC 3D Reconstructor® Mining is the perfect solution for volumes evaluation, profiles and contour lines extraction. Color images taken from UAVs and Drone platforms are initially managed by PixR³ to extract colored 3D point clouds. JRC 3D Reconstructor® Mining is later used to merge these data with point clouds coming from lidar or total station/GNSS field measurements. Volumes, cross sections, cut&fill, crests&toes, isolines, etc., can now be easily obtained thanks to the JRC 3D Reconstructor® Mining software package. A greater resolution of the model is assured by the capability of JRC 3D Reconstructor® to use full resolution of the color images. This feature again emphasizes the importance that JRC 3D Reconstructor® gives to the color information, the most powerful tool for detailed geotechnical and geological investigations.
PixR³ + JRC 3D Reconstructor® Heritage/Architectonical can be successfully used in cultural heritage, construction and architectonical projects when the use of laser scanner is not suited or when it is necessary to joint point clouds data coming from images processing or Lidar acquisitions.
