032 Point clouds and BIM modeling

Summary from the Podcast website:

“They are everywhere. When you ask for the erection of a building, a plot, a city, we are bombarded with the star product of the topography: the point cloud. Valid for everything, it has come to replace the veteran tape measure, the early retiming laser distance meter and allow us to boast of millimeter precision in the current states of a project. But is all that glitters gold? Do we really need millions and millions of points to raise a partition?”
