Users can click the train station labels to open the external Bing Maps app where they can use all the functions of the external app to visualize the surrounding area including querying for directions. This app has its own directions function for finding the best path from one train station to another.

Tapping the station labels will bring up an option menu where users can choose to display the station location in Bing Maps.

If you want to find how long it takes to travel from one station to another, and the best route to take, simply swipe to the Route page. Then type in the From station and To station. As you enter the values, a drop down list will appear and a station can be selected from the list.

Use PDAL to merge multiple LiDAR las files

I found a useful tool, something that works along the lines of GDAL for vector data, but for point cloud data; it's the Point Data Abstraction Library (PDAL).  PDAL can be downloaded from http://www.pdal.io/. It has some useful commands, like merging LiDAR las files, which I tried to use, as an alternative to other tools like Lastools.

Using PDAL to merge a few las files is straightforward, as illustrated below. If there are hundreds of las files to zip, then another tool might be more suitable.


To use PDAL to merge las files, just type in the following command at the Command prompt.
C:> pdal merge --verbose=5 part_1.las part_2.las part_3.las output.las


Note I: all the input las files will be merged into the last file name in the command.
Note II: the --verbose option tells the command the amount of processing messages to display. 0 for none. 
The resultant merge file is shown below.
