LiDAR Data & NVIDIA

Setting your browser to run WebGL using a discrete NVIDIA GPU

Computers with separate NVIDIA graphics cards will usually offer a better user experience when viewing 3D LiDAR point clouds, but browsers often default to the built-in graphics unit, resulting in a slower experience.

If your computer only has an integrated/built-in graphics processing unit, you’ll still be able to enjoy a 3D experience, but may have to wait a little longer for data to load.

Step 1: Download the latest NVIDIA driver

To update your driver, follow the instructions on the NVIDIA site.

Step 2: Right-Click > NVIDIA Control Panel

Right click on your desktop and click “NVIDIA Control Panel.”
