So, I guess I should clarify. I have found that I can export an XYZ and the exported file seems to stay in the correct coordinate system. When I export an .LAS file it seems to try and force it into a metric system or something. I have been bringing in the exported point cloud to Trimble Business Center and also AutoCad with the same results. The trouble I am having is that I have a program to be able to thin the point cloud after i have exported it but it only seems to work with the LAS and not the XYZ. I am finding that LAS might always have to be metric, because even in Trimble Business Center if I attempt to export a point cloud to an LAS it only gives me the option for a metric file.
So, that is my issue. I can export the XYZ just fine, but then I cant thin the cloud enough to have it be usable (100 MB plus file when made into a surface.) But I can thin an exported LAS file but the coordinate system does not come across.
The images are taken and georeferenced with the UTM system, and in Pix4d I am setting the output to both State Plane and Arbitrary systems, both of which are US FT.
