The Data Management toolset provides a collection of geoprocessing tools that operate on the terrain, TIN, and LAS dataset. The tools are organized into the following toolsets:
LAS Dataset—Contains tools for analyzing and managing the classification of lidar data referenced by a LAS dataset.
Terrain Dataset—Contains tools for creating and managing a terrain dataset, which is a multiresolution triangulated surface comprised of feature based measurements stored in a feature dataset.
TIN—Contains tools for creating and editing a triangulated irregular network (TIN) dataset, which is a single resolution surface comprised of feature based measurements.
Reassigns the classification codes and flags of LAS files.
Classifies building rooftop points in aerial lidar data.
Reclassifies lidar points based on their height from the ground surface.
Classifies ground points in aerial lidar data.
Classifies LAS points with anomalous spatial characteristics as noise.
Classifies LAS points from overlapping scans of aerial lidar surveys.
Applies colors and near-infrared values from orthographic imagery to LAS points.
Extracts LAS or ZLAS files that intersect a clipping polygon or extent.
Calculates statistics about the distribution of elevation measurements of vegetation points captured in LAS data.
Evaluates the statistics of LAS points that overlay the area defined by polygon features.
Identifies lidar points within the three-dimensional proximity of z-enabled features while also providing the option to reclassify the points and export them to an output feature class.
Classifies LAS points that intersect the input features.
Creates new LAS files that contain a subset of LAS points from the input LAS dataset.
Creates a set of nonoverlapping LAS files whose horizontal extents are divided by a regular grid.
Adds one or more feature classes to a terrain dataset.
Adds one or more pyramid levels to an existing terrain dataset.
Appends points to a point feature referenced by a terrain dataset.
Performs tasks required for analyzing and displaying a terrain dataset.
Changes the reference scale associated with a terrain pyramid level.
Changes the pyramid levels at which a feature class will be enforced for a given terrain dataset.
Creates a new terrain dataset.
Deletes points within a specified area of interest from one or more features that participate in a terrain dataset.
Removes reference to a feature class participating in a terrain dataset.
Removes a pyramid level from a terrain dataset.
Replaces points referenced by a terrain dataset with points from a specified feature class.
Creates a copy of a triangulated irregular network (TIN) dataset.
Creates a triangulated irregular network (TIN) dataset.
Redefines the data area, or interpolation zone, of a triangulated irregular network (TIN) based on its triangle edge length.
Loads data from one or more input features to modify the surface of an existing triangulated irregular network (TIN).
The following tools were deprecated at the release of version 10.0:
Add Terrain Points
Use the Append Terrain Points tool to add points to a terrain dataset.
Remove Terrain Points
Use the Delete Terrain Points tool to remove points from a terrain dataset.
