LIME: Visualisation and Interpretation Software

LIME is a high performance 3D viewer for working with models acquired using laser scanning, photogrammetry and related spatial measurement techniques. The software focuses on novel and advanced visualisation of surface meshes and photorealistic textured models, and allows additional data types (photos, georeferenced image files, hyperspectral images, panels, annotations) to be placed and overlaid in the 3D environment. LIME includes interpretation tools to allow digitisation and measurement of features. The combination of large data handling, ability to load multiple object types, and novel rendering makes LIME a unique tool for preparing high quality graphical products for presentation and collaboration.

LIME has been developed for over five years as the basis for innovations and project collaboration in the VOG Group. Nominally it is developed for geoscientists and data types common in the geosciences. However, it is equally applicable to many other applications, such as cultural heritage and archaeology, which are dependent on presentation and interpretation of 3D model data.
