When using stdmetrics_z in the R package lidR, it produces 36 bands of metrics. I am unable to find the definition of each of these bands (metrics). In the help it says to view the wiki page but there are not 36 metrics listed pertaining to z values. When I view the output tifs in ArcGIS Pro, they are simply sequentially labeled from 1-36 with no additional information.

  • Which band you cannot identify? And yes when loading in external software band names are lost. This is because writeRaster does not write the names in GeoTiff files. stackoverflow.com/questions/26763013/… gis.stackexchange.com/a/347091/103469

  • I can't tell how any of the 36 bands are actually computed. If the wiki page defined each of the 36 metrics (bands) computed by stdmetrics_z, that would be helpful.

  • It defines them all but some are grouped such as zqx which documents zq5 zq10 zq20 zq30 and so on
