LiDAR Visualization


Is it possible in GM to visualize LiDAR point cloud by hillshade/depth in order to enhance the visualization and show features in the point cloud? Please see below - can GM visualize as in the right? I tried different shaders in GM  but they only seem to work for 2D rasters? For what I am working on, the enhanced visualization is critical.

Many thanks,

    Hi MJ,

    It looks like you emailed in directly about this as well, but for future reference our internal todo item number is 25923 for this. It looks to be 'Eye Dome Lighting'. It is not currently possible in GM.

  • It would be lovely to have this feature in a near future version of GM. Thank you
