I am looking for a method to clip with multiple shapefiles (139 shapefiles polygon) a lidar.las file.
I'm using the software Fusion, as described in: How to clip LAS data using shapefile polygons and open source software?
However, because of the overlapping polygons, the process tend to misses around 18 tree plots. So, I split the polygons to become and individual polygon. There is about 139 separated shapefiles representing one polygon each.
The question is:
How am I going to write it in the batch file command to clip this 139 shapefiles data with one LAS file in one execution? I understand the step is to quote the location of the software, shapefiles and lasfile. But what if I have hundreds of shapefiles to clip with one las file.
I cannot dissolve the polygon because each of the polygons represent crown tree (overlapping crown in the dense tropical forest). I'm going to do analysis for individual tree modelling so that's why an alternative for individual polygon is necessary. Using
lasclip from lastools only allows to clip one shapefile with one las file.
The pattern in the shapefile's names is: tree_0.shp, tree_1.shp,.....until tree_138.shp
Can you help me on this? In terms of how to write the command?
