CANCELLED: NCG Seminar Point Clouds

The corona virus has struck and therefore we had to cancel the NCG Seminar "Point Clouds". You will be informed as soon as a new date is scheduled.   

The commission Core Spatial Data of the NCG (Netherlands Centre for Geodesy and Geoinformatics) organises a seminar on “Point clouds” on Friday 27 March 2020. The seminar is held in building ‘The Waaier’ (Berkhoffzaal/room 4) on the Campus of the University of Twente. You are cordially invited to attend this seminar.

The programme is as follows:


Arrival + coffee/tea


Pierre Alliez (INRIA), Robust shape reconstruction from point clouds  


Robert Voûte (CGI), From the Pointless algorithm to IndoorGML, point clouds deliver fast methods for indoor mapping and navigation networks


Uwe Stilla (TUM), Change detection of urban objects using 3D point clouds


Coffee/tea break


Markus Schütz (TUW), Continuous and Progressive Point Cloud Rendering Methods


Jesús Balado Frías (TUD/U Vigo), Mathematical morphology in point clouds to detect horizontal surfaces in indoor environments


Florent Poux (U Liege), Automatic extraction and management of semantics within point cloud data


End of seminar

Attending the NCG seminar is free, but you need to register before 20 March 2020 by sending an email with your name and affiliation to

We hope to see you all on Friday 27 March!

The organizers: Peter van Oosterom (TU Delft), Robert Vôute (CGI) and Sander Oude Elberink (UTwente).

Afterwards participants can have lunch in the restaurant of ‘The Waaier’ at their own costs. At 12:30 the layman talk of Shayan Nikoohemat will start on “Indoor 3D Reconstruction of Buildings from Point Clouds”, followed by his public PhD defence in Berkhoffzaal/room 4.
