Point cloud tools for Matlab

Note: If you just want to align 2 point clouds with the ICP algorithm, check out a newer and simpler solution called simpleICP (also available at the Matlab File Exchange). However, if you want to work with point clouds and visualize them, or you need a more flexible and powerful ICP algorithm to align > 2 point clouds at once, this here might be the right solution for you.

Documentation

The documentation is hosted here: http://www.geo.tuwien.ac.at/downloads/pg/pctools/pctools.html

Currently included are:

  • pointCloud class: a Matlab class to read, manipulate and write point clouds

  • globalICP class: a Matlab class to optimize the alignment of many point clouds with the ICP algorithm
