Introduction
------------

CloudCompare is a 3D point cloud (and triangular mesh) processing software.
It was originally designed to perform comparison between two 3D points clouds
(such as the ones obtained with a laser scanner) or between a point cloud and a
triangular mesh. It relies on an octree structure that is highly optimized for
this particular use-case. It was also meant to deal with huge point
clouds (typically more than 10 millions points, and up to 120 millions with 2 Gb
of memory).

More on CloudCompare [here](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CloudCompare)

Compilation
-----------

Supported OS: Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X

Refer to the [BUILD.md file](BUILD.md) for up-to-date information.

Basically, you have to:

- install mandatory dependencies (OpenGL,  etc.) and optional ones if you really need them
(mainly to support particular file formats, or for some plugins)
- launch CMake (from the trunk root)
- enjoy!
