I have been tasked with creating a system that will get the volume of a stock pile or an area based upon taking two point clouds named PC_A and PC_B. PC_A is the control point cloud of the area and PC_B is the new point cloud of the area. The system is supposed to calculate the volume difference between two point clouds where the PC_A is the before and PC_B is after an activity has been performed on an area.

Any suggestions on how this can be done via a program as i have to put this feature in a website.


  • maybe PDAL could serve as a starting point? – copossum Jan 15 at 9:45
