Point Cloud Decimation Algorithm

This function is made to be used in lasfilterdecimate. It implements an algorithm that creates a grid with a given resolution and filters the point cloud by selecting the highest point within each cell.

Usage
highest(res = 1)
Arguments
res

numeric. The resolution of the grid used to filter the point cloud

# NOT RUN {
LASfile <- system.file("extdata", "Megaplot.laz", package="lidR")
las = readLAS(LASfile, select = "xyz")

# Select the highest point within each cell of an overlayed grid
thinned = lasfilterdecimate(las, highest(4))
plot(thinned)
# }
