Cyclone REGISTER 360 PLUS has the ability to automatically classify point clouds and includes both an indoor and outdoor model for classification. This process will look at each Setup and determine which class each point will be placed in. Classes consist of features like walls, floors, and ceilings. Manual classification can also be done by fencing the point cloud and assigning the class. The point visibility and color can be controlled by class.
It is recommended that classification be performed after import rather than during for all but small Projects. Users will benefit from placing indoor and outdoor Setups into separate Bundles and classifying those Bundles using the appropriate model after import to take full advantage of the feature.
Classification information can only be published to LGS as of the release of the feature. Additional formats will follow in future releases. Using TruView version 2022.1.0 and newer, it can read and display the class and control visibility by class.
This is a resource-heavy operation with unique hardware requirements. Since this process requires graphics cards that not all users will have access to, the classification package is a separate download. Upon installing Cyclone REGISTER 360 PLUS, the user will be given a message stating whether or not the graphics card is compatible. If the GPU is acceptable, the user will be prompted to download and install the classification package.
Recommended specifications for classification:
Ampere NVIDIA, Volta, or Turing.
o Any RTX.
o GeForce GTX 1650 or better.
Only NVIDIA GPUs are supported.
4GB of video RAM or better.
A GPU computer capability of 7.0 or better is recommended.
Note: These cards will not work: GeForce, GeForce GT, GTX older than GTX 750.
Classification is a standard feature of Cyclone REGISTER 360 PLUS and Cyclone REGISTER 360 PLUS (BLK Edition). No additional license is necessary to run this feature.
