QCoherent Software released LP360 1.4, the LiDAR extension for ArcGIS. LP360 employs a specially designed ArcMap data layer to access LiDAR points directly from LAS files. LP360 supports large quantities of point cloud data and effortlessly facilitates the use of complete LiDAR point clouds with other GIS data types supported by ESRI’s ArcGIS software. New features include dynamic contouring, elevation masking, LAS header reporting and new data management options for ground-based LiDAR data sets. LP360 also provides access to LPObjects, allowing users to develop custom tools and scripts. (QCoherent Software, Colorado Springs, Colo.)
