Pixelement has a server side service that takes in imagery collected from a plane or drone then converts it into 3D data. THe idea is a plugin where the user to uploads data to the pixelement service then read the 3d data returned from pixelement into Desktop. This plugin would be a good way to get desktop into the hands of pixelement's users. Right now Pixelement is all web based, they don't directly support a desktop application. Pixelement's primary customers are mining operations where 3D land data is important. Technically this should be easy, and I think pixelement would be happy help a lot
I met with the founder of pixelement at GeoYou in St. Louis last week. He recommended this idea.
