You are here: Point Cloud > PointCloudOnRasterComponentSetter


Sets point cloud component values by overlaying a point cloud on a raster. The component values for each point will be set from band values at the point location.

For example, a potential use case is to colorize a point cloud using orthophotos.

Usage Notes

This transformer accepts multiple input point clouds and rasters. One point cloud is output for each input point cloud.

The component value for each point is taken from the first raster that can supply one (for example, if a point does not overlap a raster, the next raster will be tried), so the order of input for rasters can impact the result.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
