Hi everybody

Is it possible to script the 'select Lidar by distance' tool? If yes, how to? This tool is available in the Lidar module and I want to know if I can script it? I mean loading multiple .LAS files and one 3D CAD file (DWG) with power lines. And then finding lidar points within a distance from 3D power lines. Can someone help me please? Thanks. Frank

    Hello,

    In Global Mapper 20.1, we added a new command called EDIT_LIDAR, which allows you to select and modify Lidar points based on their proximity to a line feature.

    Cheers,
    Bob

    i dont know if this could be of help. what if you create a buffer of the desired distance using the advanced feature creation while all your data is loaded then under the advanced feature selection you select all point within the currently selected polygon then all your lidar points will be selected
