MicroSurvey Pointcloud Online

MicroSurvey 2017 has many Pointcloud capabilities. Users can work with data from scanners, multistations or photogrammetry to derive 3D models, DTMs and topography from minimal field time. This 8 hour online training session will focus on preparing new and experienced users of MicroSurvey's pointcloud products to work efficiently with key pointcloud functions and related 3D drafting and modeling functions.

  • Importing non-Leica datasets
  • Pointcloud  Clipping tools

Session 2:

  • Creating "Bare Ground" surfaces from Lidar Data
  • Creating contours and deliverables from surfaces
  • Generating Volume Reports from UAV sourced photogrammetric data
  • Using Workplanes for 3D tasks
  • osnapz, elevation, .xy filters and their applications in 3D drafting
  • Drafting on workplanes



  • Attendees should have an intermediate knowledge of CAD operations, this will not be a beginnner's class
  • Attendees must have MicroSurvey CAD 2017 or newer installed and registered as "Ultimate," and the free Cyclone Viewer installed and registered.  
  • MicroSurvey DTM and Modeling is recomended as a companion to this class, but is not a pre-requisite

The class will be taught over 2, 4 hour sessions and a 1 hour introductory session will be held to ensure you are prepared to use the online training tools.  Instruction will be lead by the teacher and datasets will be shared with students to allow them to practise hands-on activities to during the lessons.  Training is delivered online with streaming video and audio for questions and answers.  Once you are registered you will be provided with an invitation to join the class on the designated start time and a link to the training page where you can download the required materials and view any available videos.

There will be a link to video recordings of past classes included in the materials page, so students can review the sessions at their leisure. If you are concerned that you may miss one session this is an attractive option.  Upon completion you will be emailed a PDF certificate of completion.
