So you have an interesting picture and want to convert it into a point cloud… The folks at FPV Lab explain how you can go about doing that. It will direct you to download a program called VisualSFM. The program VisualSFM is a GUI application for 3D reconstruction using structure from motion (SFM).

Scientists in China have developed a new technique for creating 3D ghost images through the use of lidar that include single simple pixels. Using the techniques, whole scenes can be evaluated within a single pixel – reducing large points for whole scenes to a much lower number, perhaps 50,000. “Compared with two-dimensional imaging, three-dimensional imaging [...]

Cornelius König at Scalypso tells me that their company produces a unique 3D laser scanning data analysis software. The company states, “…The evaluation of the 3D laser scan data is not in a 3D point cloud, but in the photo-realistic 2.5D representation of 3D data. This is calculated from the reflectance values of the laser scan (grayscale) or the [...]

Our minds have primarily been interested in 3D visualization when it comes to map making, urban planning, architecture and engineering. Our technologies have been attempting to achieve 3D representations for many years, succeeding in many places. There is a long history of being able to see 3D spaces, render them and to present 3D animations, [...]
