I have just started a PhD for which I will also analyze LIDAR data. Our IT guy has asked me what kind of monitor I would like, with the following options:
24 inch Full HD + small SD monitor.
27 inch Full HD.
27 inch 2540x1440 monitor.
The laptop I'll be using this with is a Lenovo T470P with i7-7770HQ and 16 GB RAM.
Do you guys think it will be worth it to have the higher resolution monitor for my LIDAR data or is it not necessary and would a Full HD monitor by sufficient as well?
I don't want him to spend all his budget on me if it is not necessary. On the other hand, I also don't want to be limited by my monitor in my analysis, and this is more important for me.
I will be plotting points on the LIDAR imagery and might also do some arcgis tasks, although at this point it is difficult to state what exactly I will be doing (just started this week and have mostly been doing admin). An important point to note is that I can use my laptop as a second monitor and so the extra SD monitor would be the third monitor.
