Greetings, please could you help me with some tips for the classification of points within the cloud of dense points, especially to separate points of land, vegetation and building ...

Within PHOTOSCAN, TOOLS menu, there is an option to classify points, but it asks me to enter certain parameters for the automatic classification, these parameters are not clear on how to assign them, they could indicate what values could be placed in each one, it is based on terrain and how could these parameters vary for flat, semi-mountainous, totally mountainous terrain ...

I appreciate your comments ...

Atte.

From the manual:

Max angle (deg)
Determines one of the conditions to be checked while testing a point as a ground one, i.e. sets limitation
for an angle between terrain model and the line to connect the point in question with a point from a
ground class. For nearly flat terrain it is recommended to use default value of 15 deg for the parameter.
It is reasonable to set a higher value, if the terrain contains steep slopes.
Max distance (m)
Determines one of the conditions to be checked while testing a point as a ground one, i.e. sets limitation
for a distance between the point in question and terrain model. In fact, this parameter determines the
assumption for the maximum variation of the ground elevation at a time.
Cell size (m)
Determines  the  size  of  the  cells  for  point  cloud  to  be  divided  into  as  a  preparatory  step  in  ground
points classification procedure. Cell size should be indicated with respect to the size of the largest
area within the scene that does not contain any ground points, e. g. building or close forest.


Is this clear to you?
