The OpenTopography Tool Registry provides a community populated clearinghouse of software, utilities, and tools oriented towards high-resolution topography data (e.g. collected with lidar technology) handling, processing, and analysis. Tools registered below range from source code to full-featured software applications. We welcome contributions to the registry via the Contribute a Tool page.
Appearance of a tool in the OpenTopography Tool Registry does not imply endorsement, recommendation, or support, by the NSF OpenTopography Facility and is meant simply as a service to our users. OpenTopography does not guarantee the completeness or accessibility of specific content and links contributed by users. If you have been directly involved with the development of a registered tool and are not the original contributor of the tool to the registry, please email email@example.com to supply updates or modifications to its entry.
Description: This is a Point Cloud visualization tool developed in conjunction with the University of Santa Cruz. SlugView started out as a general point cloud viewer. Neva Ridge Technologies added numerous capabilities primarily to support visualization of point clouds with associated numeric attributes. The data can have up to 2 associated attributes which can be used to control which points are actually displayed. Multiple point clouds can be displayed at once and can be displayed sequentially as an animation. Input data formats are primarily text files. Each line in the text file would contain X, Y, Z and optionally red, green, blue, and additional attribute values.
