Hello dronedeploy community,
Actually I’m working for a research project with point data, that were exported from dronedeploy one year ago.
Unfortunately processing the exported LAS-files is quit challenging, as there are some issues with the file format.
My aim is to import the data into Grass-GIS to process it there with a special fragmentation tool. But till now I was not able to import it… So I’m thought I will ask for some help in this community.
I tried to process the data with several tools, like lidR package in R-Studio and LAStools. First I had to change the projection with las2las to a appropriate one, to be able to display it correctly in these tools. Now I can do further processing with the data, like creating a grid. By the way these grids are located correctly, when loading them to a GIS-application. So coordinates seem to be correctly. Anyway loading the point-data to Grass-GIS (with v.in.lidar tool) fails, because the points are in a wrong location/projection. Has someone an idea, how to change my pointclouds in a format every other software can read?
Additionally lidR-Package has a problem with the attribute type, because they are not an unsigned integer. I could solve this with a little cumbersome trick, but if some has a hint for this problem too, I’ll be very happy!
Thank you very much in advance for your help!
