Did you know that you can “tune” how LP360 uses memory?

Did you know that you can “tune” how LP360 uses memory? This is accomplished via the Performance tab on the LAS Layer Properties dialog (Figure 1). A word of caution is in order before modifying these settings. If you are running a 32 bit version of LP360 (and, unfortunately, LP360 for ArcGIS® is forced to be 32 bit because ESRI has not ported their desktop applications to 64 bit as of yet), you will be severely limited in the amount of memory available to do tuning. If you are able to use LP360 x64, you are using a 64 bit operating system and have extended physical memory; you will see some significant improvements via these tuning parameters. Thus if you are using LP360 for interactive editing of LIDAR data, move to Windows 7, 64 bit and put 16 GB of RAM in your machine – you’ll be cooking with gas!
