Overview

pcl.js is a Point Cloud Library (PCL) that runs in the browser, powered by Emscripten and WebAssembly

The Point Cloud Library (PCL) is a large scale, open project for 2D/3D image and point cloud processing. The PCL framework contains numerous state-of-the art algorithms including filtering, feature estimation, surface reconstruction, registration, model fitting and segmentation. PCL has its own data format for storing point clouds - PCD (Point Cloud Data), but also allows datasets to be loaded and saved in many other formats.

A point cloud is a set of data points in space. The points may represent a 3D shape or object. Each point position has its set of Cartesian coordinates (X, Y, Z). Point clouds are generally produced by Lidar(light detection and ranging) or by photogrammetry software, which measure many points on the external surfaces of objects around them.

Usage

NPM

Browser

import * as PCL from 'pcl.js';

async function main() {
  // Initialization
  await PCL.init({
    /**
     * Recommend, optional configuration, custom WebAssembly file link.
     * @default js file dir + pcl-core.wasm
     */
    url: 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/pcl.js/dist/pcl-core.wasm',
    // You can also pass an ArrayBuffer of WebAssembly files.
    // arrayBuffer: ArrayBuffer
  });

  // ...
}

main();

Node.js

const PCL = require("pcl.js");

async function main() {
  // Initialization
  await PCL.init();
  // ...
}

main();

Basic Usage Example

// TypeScript

import * as PCL from 'pcl.js';

async function main() {
  await PCL.init({
    url: 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/pcl.js/dist/pcl-core.wasm',
  });

  // Get PCD file
  const data = await fetch('https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/luoxuhai/pcl.js@master/data/rops_tutorial/points.pcd').then(res => res.arrayBuffer());
  // Load PCD file data, return point cloud object
  const cloud = PCL.loadPCDData<PCL.PointXYZ>(data, PCL.PointXYZ);

  // Filtering a PointCloud using a PassThrough filter
  // See: https://pcl.readthedocs.io/projects/tutorials/en/master/passthrough.html#passthrough
  const pass = new PCL.PassThrough<PCL.PointXYZ>(PCL.PointXYZ);
  pass.setInputCloud(cloud);
  pass.setFilterFieldName('z');
  pass.setFilterLimits(0.0, 1.0);
  const cloudFiltered = pass.filter();

  // Save filtered point cloud objects as PCD files, the content is ArrayBuffer
  const cloudFilteredData = PCL.savePCDDataASCII(cloudFiltered);
}

main();
