If you process large amounts of LIDAR data then in my opinion I think you should have both LIDAR Analyst and LP360 in your tool-belt.
LIDAR Analyst provides you with automated tools to perform classification on large elevation data-sets (both point clouds and DEMs). But as we all know - any automated tool, will make mistakes. It is for those cases that a tool such as LP360 becomes extremely useful. As an interactive editing and QA/QC tool - LP360 is one of the best I have seen. It handles the display of really huge point cloud efficiently and provides you with an awesome set of tools that allow you to leverage your classified data (that LIDAR Analyst output).
And now with the release of LPObjectsT (their API into LP360), you can create new tools that use both LIDAR Analyst features (through the Feature Analyst API) and LP360 features using their new API.
