    Using PointCab you can easily calculate the volume of a mound . Activate our Volume tool :

    In this example we wish to calculate the volume of a pile of stones. Select the required area :

    Start the processing with a green Start button. The Volume will be calculated according to REB 22013 and showed immediately afterwards:

    Processing:

    The mesh accuracy describes the maximal acceptable divergence between calculated mesh area and measured point cloud.The smaller this value, the minuter the location of triangles. In consequence the size of a file augments.

    The filter object smooths the surface and removes points within some value. It means that if a 5 cm filter is selected , points lying 5 cm above or below the surface will be ignored. If a prism pole stands in the terrain, it will not affect the calculation.

    CAD & File:

    Under the CAD tab you can choose the Export Unit.

    You can change the name of a task under File.
