PSIAP Point Cloud City

The 2018 NIST Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program - Point Cloud City NOFOawardees will generate an extensive catalog of annotated 3D indoor point clouds that can be used by industry, academia, and government to advance research and development in the areas of indoor mapping, localization and navigation for public safety, as well as to demonstrate the potential value of ubiquitous indoor positioning and location-based information. These pioneering U.S. state and local governments will create a model ‘Point Cloud City’ and also participate in the NIST Global Cities Team Challenge initiative as the lead for an Action Cluster. PSCR funded over $750K in new awards for this research and development.
