I am looking for a software that would be able to store huge point clouds generated from LIDAR and stereo camera scans of terrain and urban areas (with buildings etc.). I need to visualize the data and possibly also edit it. Everything should be doable via web browser.
I found map servers like MapServer and GeoServer but since they are rather complex I did not investigate these in depth yet. I also do not know if they can store elevation at all and thus if they are suited for point clouds (they seem to be rather for 2D maps).
According to this post point clouds should be possible to store the point cloud in a custom PostGIS database. There also is a PostgreSQL extension for storing point clouds. This post led me to the Potree web based point cloud viewer. All these pieces together may form the software in question except the visual editor part.
I prefer open source software.
I am afraid such a complex piece of software with all the features I need may not exist in a single package yet. If anyone could at least confirm this assumption, that would be nice so that I do not need to waste time on further research...
