Next Chapter: [[View]]
 
 
[[File:DemImportWizard9.png]]
 
==== Classification Map ====
 
Each data point has a classification or is unclassified. This intensity is shown in a colored map.
 
 
 
Example:
 
 
 
[[File:DemImportWizard10.png]]
 
 
 
The classification tiff image has the following color index:
 
* 0 Created, never classified (light gray)
 
* 1 unclassified (red)
 
* 2 Ground (yellow)
 
* 3 Low Vegetation (light green)
 
* 4 Medium Vegetation (green)
 
* 5 High Vegetation (dark green)
 
* 6 Building (Generic) (gray)
 
* 7 Low point (noise) (gray)
 
* 9 Water (blue)
 
* 10 Bridge (brown)
 
* 11 Road (brown)
 
* 12 Overlap pointd (gray)
 
=== Create ocdLas ===
 
Check this option to create an ocdLas file. This is an file which is optimize for OCAD and contains all points with attribute.
 
 
 
This file is used to create profiles. This file is often very big (> 1 GB). That is the reason why OCAD doesn't load this file by default.
 
 
 
Learn more about the ocdLas File functions on the [[ocdLas File]] page.
