is a tool that reads LIDAR from LAS/LAZ/ASCII and grids them onto a raster. The most important parameter ‘-step n’ specifies the n x n area that of LiDAR points that are gridded on one raster cell (or pixel). The output is either in BIL, ASC, IMG, TIF, PNG, JPG, XYZ, FLT, or DTM format. The tool can raster the ‘-elevation’ or the ‘-intensity’ of each point and stores the ‘-lowest’ or the ‘-highest’, the ‘-average’, or the standard deviation ‘-stddev’. Other gridding options are ‘-scan_angle_abs’, ‘-counter’, ‘-counter_16bit’, ‘-counter_32bit’, ‘-user_data’, ‘-point_source’, and others. For more details and other options not mentioned here see the README file.
