I want to load approximately 10 large LIDAR tiles for analysis. I have tried using ArcScene but it appears there is a limit on how much data ArcScene can handle at one time. Each tile is 65-90MB in size. The only returns that I am using (and that are available) are ground returns.
My computer has 8GB ram, an amd 6 core processor, and a really good video card. I am fairly certain that it is more than sufficient to handle large amounts of data.
I am not against using something other than an ESRI product to complete this task.
