Rendering Images from Scan Data

After scanning, the 3D data points are projected by an off-screen OpenGL-based rendering module onto an image plane to create 2D images. The camera for this projection is located in the laser source, thus all points are uniformly distributed and enlarged to remove gaps between them on the image plane. Fig. [*] shows reflectance images and rendered depth images (distances encoded by grey-values) as well as point clouds.
