W13: Tile-based batch Processing of Photogrammetry Points with the LAS tools LiDAR Processing toolbox in QGIS


Instructor: Martin Isenburg


Hands-on workshop that guides the attendees through a complete tile-based multi-core point processing pipeline for photogrammetry points generated from aerial imagery (aircraft or drones) using dense-matching software. We’ll cover the differences between LiDAR and photogrammetry points and the resulting difficulties in terms of ground, building, vegetation classification. We explore different options for generating reasonable terrain models and vector derivatives using one or two example projects.

The latest LAStools version bundled with data will be provided. QGIS 2.18 should be installed. Non-Windows laptops also need Wine installed.
