   Thanks. That will do nicely.

   I also just learned that here in Oregon the state charges for providing
raw LAS data to the public ($150+ for 50G, about 4 7.5 minute topo quads),
but provides ESRI-formatted data for free. Makes no sense to me, but I'm not
a bureaucrag. I'll use the Grid formatted data because I cannot justify
charging my client for the raw data.

Thanks very much,
