2. How to process data

Import your data and start 3Dsurveying

For the purpose of this tutorial section, we are going to show you how to import the Construction Site tutorial data set, demonstrate Ground Control Point (GCP) orientation and geo-referencing, along with reconstructing a Dense Point Cloud, calculating a complete 3D Mesh Model and an Orthophoto, and volume calculation.

3. How to share data

Export and share your data

Export your work to Google Earth, CAD, or any other third-party software. Use our free 3Dsurvey Viewer app to simplify your team collaboration needs even further.

3Dsurvey Viewer is fully compatible with any third-party sources, point clouds and 3D models, so just download it and confidently share your great work with your colleagues and clients.
