GRASS GIS - Geographic Resources Analysis Support System

  •    C++

Geographic Resources Analysis Support System, commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is a Geographic Information System (GIS) used for data management, image processing, graphics production, spatial modelling, and visualization of many types of data. GRASS supports raster and vector data in two and three dimensions. The vector data model is topological, meaning that areas are defined by boundaries and centroids; boundaries cannot overlap within a single layer.

PostGIS - Spatial and Geographic objects for PostgreSQL

  •    C

PostGIS is a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL. PostGIS adds extra types (geometry, geography, raster and others) to the PostgreSQL database. It also adds functions, operators, and index enhancements that apply to these spatial types.

3dmatch-toolbox - 3DMatch - a 3D ConvNet-based local geometric descriptor for aligning 3D meshes and point clouds

  •    C++

Matching local geometric features on real-world depth images is a challenging task due to the noisy, low-resolution, and incomplete nature of 3D scan data. These difficulties limit the performance of current state-of-art methods, which are typically based on histograms over geometric properties. In this paper, we present 3DMatch, a data-driven model that learns a local volumetric patch descriptor for establishing correspondences between partial 3D data. To amass training data for our model, we propose an unsupervised feature learning method that leverages the millions of correspondence labels found in existing RGB-D reconstructions. Experiments show that our descriptor is not only able to match local geometry in new scenes for reconstruction, but also generalize to different tasks and spatial scales (e.g. instance-level object model alignment for the Amazon Picking Challenge, and mesh surface correspondence). Results show that 3DMatch consistently outperforms other state-of-the-art approaches by a significant margin.

frustum-pointnets - Frustum PointNets for 3D Object Detection from RGB-D Data

  •    Python

Created by Charles R. Qi, Wei Liu, Chenxia Wu, Hao Su and Leonidas J. Guibas from Stanford University and Nuro Inc. This repository is code release for our CVPR 2018 paper (arXiv report here). In this work, we study 3D object detection from RGB-D data. We propose a novel detection pipeline that combines both mature 2D object detectors and the state-of-the-art 3D deep learning techniques. In our pipeline, we firstly build object proposals with a 2D detector running on RGB images, where each 2D bounding box defines a 3D frustum region. Then based on 3D point clouds in those frustum regions, we achieve 3D instance segmentation and amodal 3D bounding box estimation, using PointNet/PointNet++ networks (see references at bottom).

maptk - Motion-imagery Aerial Photogrammetry Toolkit

  •    C++

MAP-Tk started as an open source C++ collection of libraries and tools for making measurements from aerial video. Initial capability focused on estimating the camera flight trajectory and a sparse 3D point cloud of a scene. These products are jointly optimized via sparse bundle adjustment and are geo-localized if given additional control points or GPS metadata. This project has similar goals as projects like Bundler and VisualSFM. However, the focus here in on efficiently processing aerial video rather than community photo collections. Special attention has been given to the case where the variation in depth of the 3D scene is small compared to distance to the camera. In these cases, planar homographies can be used to assist feature tracking, stabilize the video, and aid in solving loop closure problems.

EarthView is an open-source 3D visualization of the Earth globe for iOS that uses map tiles for imagery and OpenGL ES and GLKit for rendering.

The project uses a quad-tree to page in map tiles that conform to the Tile Map Service standard (or, the flipped Google equivalent). The level of detail to display is determined by the estimated screen-space error of a given page.
