These are not in everyday use but are still useful on occasion

Script Language Use Python Part of old processing job submission system Python Parse output from az* programs to remove cruft - not kept up to date with newer versions and possibly too ambitious Python Creates a .txt ReadMe for lidar deliveries bash Script to make a workspace copy of a project directory (ie. avoid copying raw files, etc)

kqsub bash Handy for quick submission of individual flightlines and sct values. Designed for use with old rune/runh scripts Python bash Generates an azgcorr-format ASCII DEM from old Optech lidar point cloud files

If it's obsolete and been replaced by something newer / better, delete the obsoleted one. If we don't have a replacement, it may be worth keeping around but remember the cost in confusion.
