Point Cloud Library
The Point Cloud Library (PCL) is a standalone, large scale, open project for 2D/3D image and point cloud processing.
PCL is released under the terms of the BSD license, and thus free for commercial and research use. We are financially supported by a consortium of commercial companies, with our own non-profit organization, Open Perception. We would also like to thank individual donors and contributors that have been helping the project.
Please refer to the platform specific tutorials:
Please read CONTRIBUTING.md.
To report issues, please read CONTRIBUTING.md#bug-reports.
For general questions on how to use the PCL, please consider one of the following alternatives instead:
- Stack Overflow
for Q&A as well as support for troubleshooting, installation and debugging. Do
remember to tag your questions with the tag
- Gitter channel for live chat with other members of the PCL community and casual discussions
