How to export point cloud dataset in feet ?

If you wish to export the data in the imperial system (feet or us-feet) instead of the metric system please follow the steps

The conversion is done as the last step before exporting the project in CloudStation. The whole 

preprocessing workflow done in POSPac does not need to be changed 

Step 1: In the export settings in CloudStation you can choose the desired coordinate system for export. 

Click on the “Coordinates“ tab and choose “Other“

Step 2: Type your desired Coordinate Reference System (CRS) into the search bar. Then choose your CRS. Clicking the “New Custom CRS“ button on the right will open a new window where you can define your custom CRS. 

Step 3: In the shown text field add “+vunits=us-ft“ to convert the vertical values from metric to imperial values (for survey feet, add "+vunits=ft" for british feet).

American CRS will already have imperial values in the X and Y dimension (“+units=us-ft“) so only the Z value has to be converted.
