Lidar Point Density

Hi. Anyone got any good ideas as to how to calculate point density over a point cloud. I need to find out how many points per square meter for each individual square meter rather than generally for the dataset. Ta, J

Hi Johnnie,

 

If you have LAStools for ERDAS IMAGINE installed you can use the lasgrid tool. Set the pixel size to 1.0 and the attribute to density.

Re: Lidar Point Density

Yup, saw we could do it that way but not through IMAGINE tools. Ah well!
