I need to generate a tile index in ArcGIS from an LAS Dataset.

When you create an LAS Dataset, the map displays a footprint-like feature. These polygons contain the LAS file reference and you can identify the file name. Is there a way to save this as a polygon feature?

I essentially need the spatial location of the LAS files with associated file name as a field in the attribute table.

There are 800+ tiles so manually creating this is not preferred.

  • Have you tried feature class to polygon tool on that "layer"? – Roman Apr 23 '16 at 16:06
  • I actually found an answer, The "Point File Information" tool does exactly what I wanted: "Generates statistical information about one or more point files in a polygon or multipatch output." - From ESRI resources. – LMHall Apr 28 '16 at 17:14
