GEON Points2Grid Utility
Entry ID: points2grid


Summary
Abstract: Points2Grid is a robust and scalable tool for gridding lidar point cloud data to generate Digital Elevation Models (DEMs). Points2Grid uses a local gridding method to compute grid cell elevation using a neighborhood defined around each cell based on a search radius provided by the user (see image below). Points2Grid offers two processing modes - in-core and out-of-core - to allow it to handle ... View entire text
