At the International LiDAR Mapping Forum in Denver, Bruce Dell, Euclideon Pty Ltd president, demonstrated technology for extremely fast processing and visualization of LiDAR point cloud data. Euclideon's technology, called "unlimited detail" professes to "remove all limits surrounding the amount of 3D data that you can capture and visualize." Euclideon markets technology akin to how today's search algorithms retrieve information. According to the company, "at the heart of the technology is a 3D search algorithm that can render unlimited quantities of point cloud data in real-time. As this algorithm efficiently grabs only one point for every screen pixel, it can display models of previously unimaginable sizes at interactive frame-rates, without the need for a powerful CPU or graphics card."
