Is it possible to import cloud file created in Agisoft Photoscan?

I have some dense clouds that were created in Agisoft Photoscan and was wondering if there is a way to import those into Drone2Map?  We have to use Photoscan because we are doing coral reef work under water, which prevents the possibility of having embedded coordinates from GPS. 

A related question is it is my understanding is that Drone2Map will not work with images that do not have embedded lat/longs, is that correct?

Yes, you'll need x,y,z information either embedded in the exif of the images - or in a csv someplace that can be pulled.  I am not aware that you can import a cloud into any software as the "las"/"cloud" is created from the processing and adjustment of the imagery in the project that is processed by the software.

Hi Christopher,

Unfortunately there's no tool to import nor visualize point cloud data into/on D2M. I recommend  you to use ArcGIS Pro to do something (view, edit, analyze, share) with point cloud data
