Have you looked at PCL (point cloud library) yet? I might be wrong but not sure opencv can do this. Also do a search for Mat to PCL for code examples of how to integrate opencv with PCL.

Thank you for your answer. but it is possible to use opencv library. Now, I am able to convert the depth data into point cloud data by using opencv library only.
