# filters.greedyprojection¶

The Greedy Projection filter passes data through the Point Cloud Library (PCL) GreedyProjectionTriangulation algorithm.

GreedyProjectionTriangulation is an implementation of a greedy triangulation algorithm for 3D points based on local 2D projections. It assumes locally smooth surfaces and relatively smooth transitions between areas with different point densities.

## Example¶

{
"pipeline":[
"input.las",
{
"type":"filters.greedyprojection"
},
{
"type":"writers.las",
"filename":"output.las"
}
]
}


## Options¶

None at the moment. Relying on defaults within PCL.
