Point Cloud Compression


Right now the software (programmed in C++) is optimized to be build on Ubuntu 16.04 (64 bit) or Windows (32 and 64 bit), using pre-build PointCloudLibrary (PCL) installers, and can be installed on many other systems by downloading and building PCL and its depencies (Boost,Eigen,Flann,QHull,VTK and libjpeg-turbo).

To use our testbed software, several dependencies (Boost,Eigen,Flann,QHull,VTK and libjpeg-turbo) need to be installed:

  • for Ubuntu 16.04 by installing a number of Debian packages
  • for Windows 7,8 and 10, most of this can be done using an all-in-one installer
  • for all other supported systems by downloading, building and installing PCL and its nessesary Third Party Package (TPP’s) as described at: http://pointclouds.org/downloads -> ‘Compiling from source’.
