Undet project coordinate transformation tools for georeferenced point clouds
This advanced tutorial demonstrates how to use Undet project coordinate transformation tools to avoid screen glitching, snapping, and trimming issues when using georeferenced point clouds.
The transformation tool in point cloud software allows you to move, rotate, and manipulate your point cloud data. It is handy when working with large coordinate systems or switching between different coordinate systems. Here is a summary of how the transformation tool works and why you should use it:
Moving and rotating point clouds: The transformation tool allows you to move your point cloud data to a new coordinate system or rotate it to a different orientation. This can be helpful when aligning your point cloud with other data or when adjusting the position of your point cloud within a project.
Solving issues with large coordinate systems: When working with point clouds that have large coordinate values, you may encounter problems such as snapping issues, line trimming, or screen glitches. The transformation tool can help solve these issues by allowing you to switch to a different coordinate system where these problems are minimized or eliminated.
Restoring to original coordinates: If you have changed your point cloud’s position or orientation using the transformation tool, you can quickly restore it to its original coordinates. This can be useful when you need to export your point cloud data or when you want to revert to the original orientation for further analysis.
Shifting and adjusting point cloud data: The transformation tool allows you to shift your point cloud data in the X, Y, or Z direction. This can be helpful when you need to align your point cloud with other data or when you want to adjust the elevation of your point cloud.
Caution with rotation: While the transformation tool allows you to rotate your point cloud, it is essential to note that the orientation of the point cloud is often crucial for accurate analysis. Setting up a new coordinate system or using a different approach is recommended if you need to rotate your point cloud.
