Classification of LIDAR points by Intensity

LIDAR data often contains many attributes in addition to the simple positional information for the individual returns. One useful attribute in the classification of LIDAR points is the intensity. The intensity represents the magnitude of the return pulse and is recorded as an integer value within the LAS format. The intensity information is what is…
