  • Point Count (PntCnt): the number of total points used in the summary.
  • Point Source/Flightline Counts (PSCnt): the number of unique point source or flight line values.
  • Per Point Source/Flightline Counts (PSCnt_#): the number of points within each unique point source or flight line value
  • Number of Classes Used (NumCLUsed): the number of unique classification values.
  • Per Classification Counts (CLCnt_#): the number of points within each unique classification.
  • Number of Return Numbers Used (RNUsed): the number of unique return number values.
  • Per Return Number Counts (RNCnt_#): the number of points within each unique return number.
  • Per Number of Returns Counts (NRCnt_#): the number of points within each unique number of returns (if grouping by number of returns).
