filters.litree

The purpose of the Li tree filter is to segment individual trees from an input PointView. In the output PointView points that are deemed to be part of a tree are labeled with a TreeID. Tree IDs start at 1, with non-tree points given a TreeID of 0.

Note

The filter differs only slightly from the paper in the addition of a few conditions on size of tree, minimum height above ground for tree seeding, and flexible radius for non-tree seed insertion.

Default Embedded Stage

This stage is enabled by default

Example

[
    "input.las",
    {
        "type":"filters.litree",
        "min_points":50,
        "min_height":10.0,
        "radius":200.0
    },
    {
        "type":"writers.las",
        "filename":"output.laz",
        "minor_version":1.4,
        "extra_dims":"all"
    }
]

Options

min_points

Minimum number of points in a tree cluster. [Default: 10]

min_height

Minimum height above ground to start a tree cluster. [Default: 3.0]

radius

The seed point for the non-tree cluster is the farthest point in a 2D Euclidean sense from the seed point for the current tree. [Default: 100.0]

where

An expression that limits points passed to a filter. Points that don’t pass the expression skip the stage but are available to subsequent stages in a pipeline. [Default: no filtering]

where_merge

A strategy for merging points skipped by a ‘where’ option when running in standard mode. If true, the skipped points are added to the first point view returned by the skipped filter. If false, skipped points are placed in their own point view. If auto, skipped points are merged into the returned point view provided that only one point view is returned and it has the same point count as it did when the filter was run. [Default: auto]
