The Height range determines how the Point Cloud data will look, as it alters what height the different colours represent. By increasing the lowest point of the height range, more of the selected area is viewed in the lower end of the colour spectrum (blue) If you were to decrease the highest point of the height range, more of the data would appear as high points. This would lead the data to appear in more dark and red colours.
Additional options include:
- Intensity Range: The intensity range determines the intensity with which the data appears in the image. By decreasing the larger number in the intensity range, you decrease the intensity of the image.
- Point Size: As the image is composed of singular points to create an image, it is possible to increase the point size using the “Point Size” tool.
- Advanced Options: To view advanced options, click the “Show advanced options” button underneath the Point Style submenu. The “Shape” option allows you to change the shape of the points in the image. You can also change the attenuation of the image using the drop-down menu.
- Symbology: You can edit the symbology of the data by using the “Symbology” submenu. Here, you can choose between the “Height”, “Classification”, and “Intensity”. To view advanced options click the “Show advanced options” button. Within the advanced options, you can edit the Color, Height, Depth, Intensity and Classification of the data.
- Eye Dome Lighting: The “Eye Dome Lighting” feature allows for the integration of shadows and different lighting into the image.
