What PattyAnalytics can do for you

  • Place an object (dense but small point cloud) on a drive map (sparse point cloud with large extent)
  • Rotate, scale, and translate the object to absolute dimenstion (meters, lat/lon)
  • Read and write LAS files

This library builds on Python bindings from the python-pcl package, which in turn uses the state of the art Point Cloud Library. This allows us to scale up to large point clouds, while keeping good performance via optional GPU acceleration.
