Inverse Distance Weighting algorithm for creating DSM

Hi - Does anyone know what search radius is used for the IDW interpolation of the point cloud for creating the DSM? (or does it use a variable radius that provides n points depending on point density)
Thanks
Rob

Hi Robert.

The IDW function takes into account all of the points in the densified point cloud except points that you assign to the Disabled point class. So, yes, it uses a variable radius depending on the size of your project.
