|Example of LiDAR data strips|
- Open up the OSGeo4W Command Prompt. Change the directory to the folder containing the *.laz files.
A folder containing LiDAR *.las file strips
- At the prompt, type in the command:
C:\> pdal tindex boundary.sqlite *.laz -f SQLite --lyr_name "bnd"
where boundary.sqlite is the output file
*.laz specifies the input files using a wildcard
-f SQLite is the output format
--lyr_name "bnd" specifies the layer name to append to the output name
- Press RETURN.
The boundaries are generated.
- Optional. After the process is completed, drag and drop the output file e.g. boundary.sqlite onto QGIS.
The LiDAR strips boundary_bnd_polygon are displayed.
The output boundaries have the following attributes as shown below.
