Importing Point Cloud
Eric 6 years ago in Mining • updated by Erik Scheel 6 years ago • 1
I have a point cloud with 500k points. I removed duplicates in X and Y directions. When I load the points, there is something wrong. It looks ok in plan view, but when you rotate it, it all goes vertical. Same if you use cross-section tool. Hard to explain, but what is the best way to import a x,y,z point cloud in order to create a DTM? Thanks

Hi Eric. This is a common problem if your coordinates are in decimal degrees. Since Micromine is inherently unitless, your elevation will be in meters but the difference in your X and Y is in tiny fractions of a degree. I suggest that you convert your coordinates to UTM so that X-Y and Z are all in the same units.
