    Collection Overview: This point cloud datatset covers a 5 km wide swath along an approximately 240 km long section of the 2013 Balochistan earthquake rupture in Pakistan. Point cloud data produced from 13 stereo data sets of 0.5 m resolution, panchromatic Pleiades images acquired by Airbus (funded by NERC, UK). The images were processed using the LPS module of the ERDAS Imagine 2013 software (version 13.00.00, Build 281). A pixel-by-pixel matching procedure was implemented with a window size of 5-by-5 pixels and a correlation coefficient of 0.3 to 0.7. For further details see: Zhou, Y., J. R. Elliott, B. Parsons, and R. T. Walker (2015), The 2013 Balochistan earthquake: An extraordinary or completely ordinary event?, Geophysical Research Letters, 43(7), 3134-3142, doi:10.1002/2015GL065096
