Chapter 10 - Main Window Menu Commands:
"Show statistics command: displays basic statistics information about laser points. In the upper part of the Statistics window, the amount of all points, active points and neighbour points are listed, as well as the elevation range for all points. In the lower part, the separate classes are listed with the point count, minimum elevation and maximum elevation values for each class."
Chapter 12 - Working with Projects.
"Show statistics command: calculates simple statistics for the block binary files. The output dialog includes information about classes, point count as well as minimum, maximum, and median elevation values."
