       v.lidar.growing  is  the  second  of three steps to filter LiDAR data.  The filter aims to
       recognize and extract attached and detached object  (such  as  buildings,  bridges,  power
       lines,  trees, etc.) in order to create a Digital Terrain Model.
       The  modules  identifies  which  is  the  internal  area  of every object on a LiDAR point
       surface. The classification categories from v.lidar.edgedetection are now rasterized.  For
       each  cell,  it  is  evaluated  if  it  (the  cell)  contains  a point with double impulse
       (difference between the first and last pulse greater than  a  given  threshold).  Starting
       from  cells classified as OBJECT and with only one pulse all linked cells are selected and
       a convex hull algorithm is applied to them. Simultaneously, the mean of the  corresponding
       heights  (mean edge height) are computed.  Points inside the convex hull are classified as
       OBJECT if their height is greater than or equal  to  the  previously  mean  computed  edge
       height. This last step is done only in case of high planimetric resolution.


       The  input  data  should  be  the  output  result  of  the  v.lidar.edgedetection, module.
       Otherwise,  it  goes  to  error!  The  output  of  this  module  will  be  the  input   of
       v.lidar.correction module. The output will be a vector map which points are pre-classified
       TERRAIN SINGLE PULSE (cat = 1, layer = 2)
       TERRAIN DOUBLE PULSE (cat = 2, layer = 2)
       OBJECT SINGLE PULSE (cat = 3, layer = 2)
       OBJECT DOUBLE PULSE (cat = 4, layer = 2)
       The  final  result  of  the  whole  procedure   (v.lidar.edgedetection,   v.lidar.growing,
       v.lidar.correction) will be a point classification in the same categories as above.
