filters.radialdensity

The Radial Density filter creates a new attribute RadialDensity that contains the density of points in a sphere of given radius.

The density at each point is computed by counting the number of points falling within a sphere of given radius (default is 1.0) and centered at the current point. The number of neighbors (including the query point) is then normalized by the volume of the sphere, defined as

\[V = \frac{4}{3} \pi r^3\]

The radius \(r\) can be adjusted by changing the radius option.

Example

{
  "pipeline":[
    "input.las",

      "radius":2.0

      "type":"writers.bpf",
      "filename":"output.bpf",
      "output_dims":"X,Y,Z,RadialDensity"
