Hello, how are you? I have a 3D coordinate system. My system was obtained from a LIDAR sensor. Do I need to project the 3D point clouds on the 2D flat image? I have to project my points considering the LIDAR coordinates as x: forward, y: left and z: up. However, my points were obtained by considering the following coordinates as x: right, y: down and z: forward. So how do I convert / rotate from the second convention (x: right, y: down, and z: forward) to the first convention (x: forward, y: left, and z: up)?
I thank you for your attention,

Point cloud data can be displayed using pcshow.The syntax of pcshow is
where ptCloud is a Point cloud object.Once the point cloud data was displayed, you may use your mouse to rotate the points.Please refer for more information regarding pcshow.
Hope this helps!

Hello. You are right.But I need learn how rotate mathematically. I tried to use the right hand rule and couldn't.
Bes regards.
