I have lidar LAS data that contains a number of points that represent returns 6 or 7. The data is supposed to be in ASPRS LAS 1.2 specification, which does not allow return numbers (echos) greater than 5. With returns of 6 and 7, my data is not 1.2 spec compliant.
For all of you point cloud junkies, what are my options to get the data into 1.2 compliance, without deteriorating its integrity?
LiDAR Sensor: Riegl LMS_Q680i
Recording Software: Riegl Ri-Acquire
Raw Data Processing Software: Riegl RiANALYZE 6.0.2 (build: 2013-12-04)
