The aim of the Scanopy project is to provide efficient algorithms for working with 3D laser scan data. The first main challenge is to improve the quality of raw scan data via filtering, scan completion and repair, making use of image information and symmetries. The second challenge is to and second to develop efficient data structures and algorithm to allow displaying huge point-based models. The third challenge is to improve the appearance of the models via lighting and relighting.
