I was reading this article: 14 ways to take charge of lidar data.

Number 12 states that you can change the colour of your point-cloud data by using a raster image. Does anyone know the process for doing this within ArcGIS?

I am looking for a way to make the visualization of lidar data really pop and I have high resolution aerial photography that I could use.


I suggest that you create a TIN based on your LIDAR data, and use the TIN as base height for your high res aerial photograph (in ArcScene, add the image, right click on it, properties > base height). Maybe you can directly use the LAS as base height, but I am not sure.
