Potree is a free open-source WebGL based point cloud renderer for large point clouds. This plugin enables rviz to render the Potree point clouds.



The plugin requires some preprocessing to render point clouds. The Potree Converter will create an appropriate multi-resolution point cloud from LAS, LAZ, PLY, XYZ or PTX files.


The original rendering algorithm was developed by Markus Sch├╝tz as part of his thesis.

This plugin has been inspired by a similar plugin for Unity written by Simon Fraiss.
