Brasington et al.’s (2012) ToPCAT algorithm can be run on high-density point clouds from within the TAT software. In addition, we provide a ToPCAT Preparation tool to help prepare your data for input into ToPCAT.
These tools simply allow a user to run ToPCAT to process large point clouds within a GIS environment and visualize the outputs in GIS. This includes:
- ToPCAT Preparation Ensures that your input point cloud file is in a format that ToPCAT can read
- ToPCAT Point Cloud Decimation Runs ToPCAT on a point cloud
