On this project we only scanned the external areas of the house and its nearby areas. As externally there are much greater amount of detail to capture, the scans were set to colour and higher resolutions compared to what we use internally.
There are both, benefits and some disadvantages of using higher resolution scans. The benefits are of course high resolution photorealistic point cloud capturing all data at the range of 130 metres. The disadvantage is the size of the pointcloud being
far greater compared to the black & white point cloud, making some computers struggle to run the files smoothly.
