PLY Files That Cause Issues

Created by John Tapia, Modified on Tue, 28 Feb 2023 at 10:53 PM by John Tapia

After processing PLY files containing georeferenced coordinates, the resulting mesh appears to be of low quality, as evidenced by what has already been uploaded.


To address this issue, one possible solution is to convert the PLY files to E57 format, which utilizes a transformation matrix to geolocate data. After converting and uploading the E57 file with the same position, we obtain the following result.

It is recommended that you discontinue uploading the PLY files. Instead, open them using Cloud Compare and save them in E57 format. Once the files have been converted, you can upload the E57 files instead.
