Affine Transform LAS PCT

Some grid to ground conversions require more than a simple scale or translation. How to setup the Affine Transform LAS Point Cloud Task to accomplish this may not be readily apparent without reaching back to the matrix math many of us probably left behind years ago. Apply a Horizontal Rotation about an Origin Point If…
