Taking Slices from LiDAR data: Part IX

I finally got PDAL properly compiled with Point Cloud Library (PCL) baked in. Word to the wise — CLANG is what the makers are using to compile. The PDAL crew were kind enough to revert the commit which broke GCC support, but why swim upstream? If you are compiling PDAL yourself, use CLANG. (Side note, […]

For this post, let’s combine the work in the last 4 posts in order to get a single pipeline for doing the following: Calculate relative height of LiDAR data Slice that data into bands of heights Load the data into a PostgreSQL/PostGIS/pgPointCloud database. Now, we can use parallel to make this run a little faster: Sadly, we can run into issues in running this in … Continue reading Taking Slices from LiDAR data: Part V
