Updated Code – GRD2DEM.F90

I updated an old code, Interpolation_auto.F, to a new and revamped version, DEM2GRD.F90. The utility takes in a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and interpolates it onto an unstructured finite element mesh using the cell-area averaging (CAA) algorithm published in Bilskie & Hagen (2013). An example input file can be found here. I also put together …

Using Arcpy to convert las files to mulitpoint shapefile

Recently, I have been doing some heavy processing of las files to eventually generate a digital elevation model (DEM). I found myself in a dilemma of having thousands of las files and needing a way to convert them to mulitpoint  shapefiles (mps). I have used lastools in the past, but typically steer away from most …
