USDA LIDAR Training Part 9: Integrating the 3D Viewer

In this LP360 tutorial we review integrating the 3D viewer into your workflow. Review of the legend command, symbology and filters in Live View, and displaying contours on the TIN.

This tutorial picks up from USDA LIDAR Training Part 8: Integrating the Profile View and uses data downloaded as explained in USDA LIDAR Training Part 4: Introduction to LIDAR Server. If you need to license LP360, see USDA LIDAR Training Part 5: Licensing LP360.
