Short description: From both a scientific and a business perspective, a great deal of effort is currently being invested in 3D data fruition. In fact, many survey approaches are now user-friendly and generate vast amounts of data in real time. The issue, however, is how to use them on a regular basis, even by a non-3D specialist audience, as well as how to manage and preserve them. This issue is being addressed by brand-new online platforms that permit online data visualization and utilization on multiple levels. Some of them provide everyone with visible access to the data and simple measurement and hotspot entry functionality, while others are more complex and permit the development of specialized systems. As online information systems, research is increasingly focusing on point cloud-based platforms.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide an overview of the systems on the market, both the simpler and more complex ones, as well as what is happening in the world of research on the topic, with the intention of dissecting issues and unanswered concerns. During the workshop, real-world examples and the application of some of these platforms will be demonstrated to the participants.
