ELVIS lidar data processed through OCAD 2018 DEM import
Mark Roberts recently reported
Just a note that I recently downloaded some lidar data from ELVIS and imported to OCAD 2018 and the results are spectacularly good. The vegetation height function depicts clearings and buildings perfectly:
Mark later remarked that lidar is becoming very readily available and the OCAD processing of lidar is so easy.
VIC lidar data processed through OCAD 2018 DEM import
Following Mark’s report I received ordered lidar data for a permanent orienteering course in Daylesford, VIC. Here in VIC we do not yet have free access, however on behalf of Orienteering Victoria I have established a protocol with DELWP for access to lidar data. As their paid orders take priority it takes some weeks to fulfill an order but the wait is certainly worthwhile.
I processed the ‘irregular points’ las files through OCAD 2018 DEM import wizard, selecting all options. This provided seven background images such as hill shading, slope gradient and hypsometric shading.
