I have a las file and I'm trying to analyze it using ArcGIS/ArcPy. Are there any built-in functions that I can use (maybe using a tool or las data property) to isolate a chunk of points? I want to be able to draw a polynomial on a section of my map and get an array of the points within the shape. It would help if anyone knew functions that could get individual points from a cloud.
I guess more specifically, how do you access the point feature class of a given las/lasd file?
I would like to have a solution that does not require a download.
