Point Thinning

I use GM to manipulate LIDAR data a lot, and one thing that I have found really useful is "thinning" my point clouds so they are easier to work with for me and my customers. As of right now I don't think GM has a point thinning option and I have to use a different software. Is that something that you guys are looking to do in the future or does it exist now and I just don't know it?

    Hello,

    Global Mapper does not have a point thinning option, per se.  There are a few other options, as discussed in this thread.  There are also a number of filtering and classification options available with the Lidar toolbar.

    Cheers,

  • Hi, 

    It's 2018 and I'm back with the same question. I have version 18.2 of GM with the LiDAR extension. Has this feature been added since 2014?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    In Global Mapper 20, we added an option to Spatially Thin LiDAR Data.

    Cheers,
    Bob
