Munich-based NavVis has launched NavVis Cloud, a cloud-based platform that gives laser scanning professionals access to its NavVis IndoorViewer. The web-based application transforms data captured by laser scanners into immersive 3D buildings. The software allows scanned data to automatically be structured into a basic model of the building.

The building is displayed as realistic 360° walkthroughs, point clouds and customisable floor plans that users can then move through as if they are on site. The model is so accurate it can even take measurements.

“One of the most common ways NavVis IndoorViewer is being used is to create digital twins of factories. This is especially popular among automotive manufacturers and was actually pioneered by a major German automotive manufacturer,” said NavVis spokeswoman Viktoria Langley.
