Display the LAS dataset from a variety of common lidar point renderers available from the LAS Dataset toolbar.
Displaying a LAS dataset as points allows you to quickly display, edit, and analyze directly on the lidar points managed in LAS files. Using the point display drop-down menu on the LAS Dataset toolbar, choose from several common lidar point-based symbology renderers.
Once a renderer is selected, the changes will automatically be applied to the LAS dataset listed in the active LAS dataset Layer drop-down menu.
The LAS dataset renderers available on the LAS Dataset toolbar are slightly different between ArcMap and ArcScene.

Select from any of the following point-based symbology renderers:
Display LAS points based on elevation.
Symbolize the LAS dataset points by the LAS classification code.
Symbolize the LAS dataset points by the lidar pulse return number.
The return strength of the laser pulse that generated the lidar point.
Symbolize the LAS dataset points by the RGB (red, green, and blue) bands.
