I have a very large dataset. After very long eATE processing, eATE merge does not complete. However, all jobs have successfully finished and all intermediate .las files are created. How can I merge these files?
If you expect the merged .las file size would exceed LAS format version 1.3 limit, which is 2^16 or 2.1 billion points, eATE merge will not generate a LAS file.
To overcome this problem, you should do the merge in spatial modeler. Spatial modeler generates LAS files in version 1.4. And the version 1.4 LAS point limit is 2^64 or 1.8e19 points, which is much higher than LAS version 1.3 limit. Las merge spatial model is attached.
