Outcrop model with PointCloudViz
PointCloudViz can be used to integrate LiDAR scanner data in virtual outcrop models, so perform geomodeling tasks and outcrop analog studies. Data courtesy of the Geomodeling Group at the University of Utah.
Point clouds displayed in multiple windows
PointCloudViz integrates seamlessly LiDAR data with other Petrel data, allowing for annotation and editing on the point cloud, which can be explored and used in multiple 2D and 3D windows simultaneousl
Facility inspection with intersection tools
The integration with Petrel intersection tools allows for easy inspection and annotation of exploration and production facilities.
Conversion tools to pointsets, surfaces and triangles meshes
PointCloudViz provides simple tools to generate Petrel pointsets, grid surfaces and triangles meshes which can in turn be used in other tasks.

Showcase of PointCloudViz's main features and applications
This short video shows PointCloudViz's main features to integrate LiDAR data in Petrel for a number of applications, including geomodeling from outcrop data and inspection of infrastructure corridors and facilities. Check the Try Me video for a more detailed view of how PointCloudViz works within Petrel and provides LiDAR data conversion processes.

LiDAR and other laser sensors provide an efficient and accurate way to capture terrain surfaces, facilities and other site features in 3D. The multiresolution technology of PointCloudViz allows the display and inspection of massive point clouds in Petrel, supporting standard LiDAR attributes like color, intensity and material, and integrating with Petrel editing and processing tools.
Input data: 3D point datasets in standard LAS, LAZ or plain text (XYZ, PTS) formats.
Supports display of RGB color per point in all formats.
Supports intensity, color x intensity and material classification in LAS and LAZ formats.
No size limit for input data. Disk space required for data pre-processing depending on input size.
Export to Petrel points, grids or triangles meshes as allowed by Petrel memory management.
Load point cloud data from the most common formats: .LAS, .LAZ and text.
Visualize with any other Petrel objects in multiple 2D and 3D windows.
Projection from any coordinate reference system.
Multiple attribute display options.
Integrated with Petrel intersection, picking, editing and data processing tools.
Convert to Petrel point sets, surfaces and triangle sets.
A step-by-step exploration of PointCloudViz applications.
