Our popular LAStools software suite has deep market penetration and is heavily used in the commercial sector, government agencies, research labs, and educational institutions alike — filtering, tiling, rasterizing, triangulating, converting, clipping, quality-checking, etc. TeraBytes of LiDAR every day.

Our open-source LiDAR compressor LASzip has become the de facto industry standard for compressed LiDAR. It has won the 2012 Geospatial World Forum Technology Innovation Award and was voted 2nd place for “most innovative product” at INTERGEO 2012.
