At this very moment, we are scanning Denmark with high resolution Lidar. (See attached picture) I was wondering if it was possible to extrude my building polygons, a little smarter than I???m currently doing. At this point I???m using my Lidar to assign a Z value to my polygons.
I would like to create a DTM and a DSM and then extrude my buildings between those two layers. That way my buildings would get
the right slope of the roof. Then it could be nice to split the roof from the building, to assign textures to it. Could something like that that be a possibility.
