area

Percentile

Surface covered by a LAS* object.

Surface covered by a LAS* object. For LAS point clouds it is computed based on the convex hull of the points. For a LAScatalog it is computed as the sum of the bounding boxes of the files. For overlapping tiles the value may be larger than the total covered area because some regions are sampled twice.
