I had a vehicle in a parking lot that could not have been moved while capturing images. The resulting point cloud is great but I have been asked to remove the vehicle for various reasons.
I assigned the points created from the vehicle as “disabled”, but when I do so, I am presented with a “hole” in parking lot due to removing the vehicle points that were covering the parking space - not a great option in this situation.
I then created a new surface at the parking lot level (surface) that encompasses the vehicle, thinking that I could somehow assign that new surface as the parking lot space to include the color assigned to the remainder of the parking lot points.
Is there any way to “create” points within the point cloud in a scenario such as this? I would like to create a surface to cover the missing points that were under the vehicle. The “surface” would be a blanket of null value points that would be cosmetic only?
I have edited orthomosaics in the past by swapping images and essentially removing the vehicle but that is by means of swapping photos where there was no vehicle present - different story.
Our intended deliverable would be a merge of this point cloud and a compiled Leica laser scan for 3D modeling purposes.
I have read help files and forums and watched videos and have not been able to find a solution, assuming that there may be a solution. Thank you.
