CyArk is very pleased to announce the development of a new partnership with Pointools
. The UK-based company creates high-end point cloud editing and rendering software. We are excited to be working closely with the Pointools team in our continued efforts to improve the quality of our data as well as expand our ever-growing international Partner Network
Pointools formed the foundation for the creation of deliverables for our latest, yet-to-be released project, St Trophime, a Catholic church in Arles, France. The data for the St. Trophime project was collected in partnership with the World Monuments Fund
as part of their on going conservation work at the site.
As a special preview for St Trophime, and to show the power of Pointools, we have included a few images of the photo-textured scan data in this blog (below and to the right).
The above image is a close-up sample section of the textured scan data from the cloister's West wing.
The above image is a sample section of the textured scan data from the cloister's North wing.
Pointools' rendering abilities make it our new choice program for creating multimedia heritage deliverables like plotted-cloud CAD drawings and fly-by animations.
Pointools has been extremely generous to the CyArk cause, donating their full suite of software to futher our digital preservation efforts. We are grateful for their commitment to our work and we look forward to our continued partnership.
