LP360 Tools in the Arc Toolbox

LP360 for ArcGIS contains a set of tools which only appear in the ArcToolbox, however, the LP360 for ArcGIS installer does not automatically put these tools into your toolbox. After installing LP360 for ArcGIS you must follow the procedure below in order to enable the tools in the LP360 toolbox:

  • Define LAS File Projection – Define or assign a projection to one or more LAS files.
  • Re-project LAS Files – Re-project points from a set of LAS files from one coordinate system into another defined coordinate system.
  • Scale LAS Files – Adds the capability to scale the X, Y or Z components of all of the points within one or more LAS files.
  • Shift LAS Files – Adds the capability to shift the X, Y, or Z components of all of the points within one or more LAS files.

These are the only LP360 tools which may be run using ModelBuilder within ArcCatalog.
