By echo length

Not Lite

By echo length routine classifies points based on the length of a return signal that resulted in a point. The echo length can be stored as attribute for each laser point in TerraScan FastBinary format. It describes the relative length of a return signal compared to a typical return from a hard surface, for example:

-50 - the echo is 50 mm shorter than a typical hard surface return.

+845 - the echo is 845 mm longer than a typical hard surface return.

The routine requires that the echo length has been extracted for the points from waveform information. Alternatively, the Riegl Extra Byte attribute Pulse width is used in TerraScan as Echo length attribute if available.
