Old School v12 LiDAR Elevation offset - Can it be done?

Hello all,

Unfortunately, my work only has a licensed v12 GM install. Currently pushing a business case through to get up to speed on the 16.

I have a query regarding native Lidar .las elevation offsets. Can it be done? It's a piece of cake in 16 but I am unsure if I can do it in 12. I don't want to go to grids or tins as I need the point data untouched for the civs to work with.

Any help would be appreciated.

:)

    I don't know if it's possible in V12, the way I do it in v15 is by exporting a vector > Lidar LAS format. In the new window there's a button below where you can click on to enter specific offset parameters. And then I use the offset for the Z value (which is by default set to 0) to offset the entire pointcloud an x amount.

    Thanks,

    Yes, this is similar to the V16 version I have trialled. I hope someone knows about v12 :)

    Seems I stumbled on how to do it in 12. I was loading mixed data types (las, xyz).

    Until I get 16, looks like LAS to XYZ and back again with a vertical offset is the goer.
