Several Street Level Recording companies offer a complete end-to-end solution for imagery collecting, automated data processing and cloud based hosting of geo–referenced imagery, as well as developer tools for creating and distributing applications that benefit from this data.
Mostly this is done by using systems capable of capturing full 360 degree spherical panoramic images, that are geometrically correct, while in motion.
Large-scale production of 3D point clouds from their panoramic images is the way forward. Key in this implementation is the precision and reliability of every single point in the 3D point cloud, as well as high throughput enabling large-scale projects.
Together, these developments are aimed to lead to even higher quality and even more precise and realistic 3D street level data for a multitude of applications.
The conclusion is that LIDAR Object Detection and Classification is key to having accurate 3D street level data output, and that is where Yado-VR steps in, enriching and completing the “picture”.
