There needs to be some way in Lightroom Classic to identify photos containing Depth Map information. I notice that (Non-classic) Lightroom CC has a search "facet" for Depth Map - why not Lightroom Classic?  So unless I've missed them somewhere - please consider adding:

1) Filter criteria - Depth Map:  Contains Depth Map, Does Not Contain Depth Map
2) Grid Thumbnail Badge Icon:  Photo Contains Depth Map

Thanks!

PS - I realize I could narrow things down a bit by searching for File Type = HEIC, but that still gives a superset of the desired results. Further, in the future I expect that other file formats besides HEIC could also contain depth maps. 
Idea Released

Can you upload a sample HEIC with a depth map to Dropbox or similar and post the sharing link here?  With that, I can provide a query for use with the Any Filter plugin. I've scoured online for example photos and couldn't find any

Here's an HEIC file you can download, that should contain depth map data:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/livdcicv4y0op8l/AABRoJ796hKmyCGpnJhCwGqfa?dl=0

This was shot on an iPhone XS Max - using the camera in Lightroom for iOS, set to "Depth Capture" mode.

You can also shoot such photos using the default iPhone camera app, set to Portrait mode. However, I was unable to transfer such a photo to Dropbox successfully - it always got converted to JPEG, despite trying many different settings to preserve it as HEIC.

Thanks. Here's a query for the Any Filter plugin that finds all .heic photos with a depth map:

Since it's invoking the ExifTool utility behind the scenes, it can only examine about 50 HEICs / second, so nowhere near as fast as if that information were stored in the catalog.

Follow-up on this thread. LR Classic 9.0 update has now added the ability to filter based on presence of depth data. Thanks!
