The movie below provides a quick glimpse of our latest dataset in CASA – a LiDAR scan of London within the M25 ring road, the model is made up of in excess of 1.5 billion points:

The points have been converted to a surface, texture mapped with aerial imagery and visualised in LandXplorer by Autodesk. A non textured mapped version can be seen below:

Thanks go to Duncan Smith at CASA for doing the processing and Cities Revealed for the data supplied by Landmap.

Note – the movie is slightly lower quality than our normal output here at digital urban as our Mac has been nicked, normal service should return next week…
