Join Eric Chappell for an in-depth discussion in this video Import point cloud data, part of InfraWorks Essential Training.
- The point cloud is another type of data…that you may find useful to include in your model.…Let's take a look at how InfraWorks handles point clouds.…I'm in the Ch 02 Lynda Heights model,…and I've opened a proposal called Point_Cloud.…To add the data to my InfraWorks model,…I can simply drag and drop as we've done…with other sources of data.…Now to tell you where the data is,…if you go into your Exercise Files folder,…under Data Sources you'll find a folder called LIDAR,…and within that folder you'll find a file called…Coastal LIDAR.rcp.…
Now I do wanna point out that when I downloaded this data,…it actually came down as a .LAS file.…I had to import that file into ReCap…thus converting it to RCP because that's the file type…I need to bring into InfraWorks.…Once I've done that, it's just a matter of drag and drop.…That'll bring up the Data Source Configuration dialogue…and one thing I notice right away is that…the Coordinate System doesn't look the same…as it has with the other data sources.…
It's kinda picked this arbitrary coordinate system XYM.…
