Nationwide data sets are overwhelming in size, even for a small country like the Netherlands. GeoTiles.nl provides a tiled version the following nationwide data products:
For the AHN point cloud, an extra tiling layer is provided, dividing each tile in 25 tiles of 1×1.25 km, for easy viewing and handling. Furthermore, our tiles include overlap, to allow for massive parallel processing of the point cloud. More information on the project and the tiling structure.
The use of GeoTiles.nl colored point clouds in QGIS is featured in a video by Hans van der Kwast, as well as a blog post by Anton Huizinga. Moreover, GeoTiles.nl was featured in the DigiDare Award 2022 pitch of Lammerts Engineering / GeoBimExperts.
In addition, the following specific point cloud data is available:

The GeoTiles project, the tiling and coloring of AHN3 point clouds, was initiated by Adriaan van Natijne. In November 2023 GeoTiles project was adopted by and transferred to the Optical and Laser Remote Sensing group of the Department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing at the Delft University of Technology.
