LIDAR in PostgreSQL with PointCloud

A session at FOSS4G North America 2013

Wednesday 22nd May, 2013

1:00pm to 1:30pm (CST)

How do you store massive point cloud data sets in a database for easy access, filtering and analysis? The new PointCloud extension for PostgreSQL allows LIDAR data to be loaded, filtered by spatial and attribute values, and analyzed via integration with PostGIS. We’ll discuss the extension implementation, basics of loading data with PDAL, and how to use PointCloud with PostGIS to do on-the-fly LIDAR analysis inside the database.
