New: The Cyclomedia Aerial Point Cloud

Accurate Positioning and High Point Density

This year Cyclomedia is introducing another valuable addition to the product portfolio in The Netherlands: the Aerial Point Cloud. This three-dimensional point cloud is collected simultaneously with the aerial photos for the whole of the Netherlands. The highly accurate positioning and high point density ensure that Cyclomedia's Aerial Point Cloud as a nationwide dataset is truly unique in its kind as a full three-dimensional information source. 

Access to all places in the Netherlands in 3D

By combining point clouds collected at street level and from the air, you actually have access to all places in the Netherlands in 3D. Virtual analyzes of vegetation, roofs and outdoor areas are within reach online via Street Smart. In addition, the dataset can be integrated into your own applications via the download service.


The Aerial Point Cloud is currently being collected in The Netherlands only and will be available in phases per region / municipality. This year the Aerial Point Cloud will be complete nationwide.
