PointCloudFilter

require(["esri/layers/pointCloudFilters/PointCloudFilter"], function(PointCloudFilter) { /* code goes here */ });
Class: esri/layers/pointCloudFilters/PointCloudFilter
Inheritance: PointCloudFilter Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.10

Point cloud filters are used to hide points that do not satisfy the filter criteria.

There are two types of filters that can be assigned to PointCloudLayer.filters:

PointCloudValueFilter is useful for filtering points based on their classification value. If only the points that represent ground and buildings should be displayed, the following filter can be set:

const pcLayer = new PointCloudLayer({
  ...,
  filters: [{
    type: "value",
    field: "CLASS_CODE",
    mode: "include",
    // values include ground(2) and building(6)
    values: [2, 6]
  }]
});

PointCloudReturnFilter is used to filter points based on the return value stored with each point in the RETURNS field. The following filter can be set to display only the points that represent the highest feature in a landscape:

const pointCloudLayer = new PointCloudLayer({
 ...,
 filters: [{
   type: "return",
   field: "RETURNS",
   values: ["firstOfMany", "single"]
 }]
});

Filters can also be combined by setting several filters on one layer. Only points that satisfy all filters are displayed.
