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.”
Step 3: Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings
Click “Manage 3D Settings” on the left sidebar, and then the “Program Settings” tab in the box that opens.
Step 4: Select Program (Ex: Chrome) > Select NVIDIA
In the “Select a program” menu, choose your program. In this case, Chrome. Then change your preferred graphics processor to the “NVIDIA” option, and click “Apply.”
