The Point Cloud Library (PCL) is a standalone, large scale, open project for 2D/3D image and point cloud processing.
PCL is released under the terms of the BSD license, and thus free for commercial and research use. We are financially supported by a consortium of commercial companies, with our own non-profit organization, Open Perception. We would also like to thank individual donors and contributors that have been helping the project.
This specific fork includes a benchmarking tool (compression_eval), a quality metric (quality) and a novel codec implementation as base for MPEG activities on point cloud compression. Cloud_codec_v2 includes both novel color coding schemes and predictive algorithms. Aim is to further develop the point cloud compression in MPEG and contribute it back to the pcl library. For further information contact rufael mekuria firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: this point cloud codec is maintained by CWI under https://github.com/cwi-dis/cwi-pcl-codec please fo there to find the latest and most up-to-date version! I am no longer maintaining this repository!
