Entwine is a data organization library for massive point clouds, designed to conquer datasets of hundreds of billions of points as well as desktop-scale point clouds. Entwine can index anything that is PDAL-readable, and can read/write to a variety of sources like S3 or Dropbox. Builds are completely lossless, so no points will be discarded even for terabyte-scale datasets.
See Connor Manning present “Trillions of points - spatial indexing, organization, and exploitation of massive point clouds Infrastructure`_ at FOSS4G 2016 in Boston, MA USA in August 2017.
See Connor Manning present “500+ Billion Points: Organizing Point Clouds as Infrastructure at FOSS4G 2016 in Bonn, Germany on August 26th, 2016.
