Beginning in 2017, additional grouping tools were introduced to enable new methods of conducting above ground classifications, beyond the usual classification routines. These tools rely on group logic – grouping above ground points with probable relationships with the goal of designating a single group of points per physical object. In short, the usual classification routines classify individual points, but the grouping method enables classification on an object level basis. The end game of these new grouping tools is to become the preferred method for the classification of above ground features. The principles of this process and advantages are discussed in the previous group classification article. This article looks at a couple of tools to demonstrate where group processing is advantageous over routine point processing, particularly for providing new data analysis options.
