This tool classifies, flags, or removes LiDAR points based on their approximate xy distance from polygonal segments. This distance is calculated on a grid with a spacing of 0.5 meters by default. With ‘-step_xy 1.0’ the granularity of this grid can be adjusted up or down.

Please license from before using lasdistance commercially. Please note that the unlicensed version will set intensity, gps_time, user data, and point source ID to zero, slightly change the LAS point order, and randomly add a tiny bit of white noise to the points coordinates once you exceed a certain number of points in the input file.
