ArcGIS LAStools toolbox for LiDAR processing In recent days more and more users are discovering the LAStools toolbox that adds powerful LiDAR processing capabilities to ArcGIS versions 9.3, 10.0, 10.2, and 10.2 allowing you to exploit your LiDAR data in the most sophisticated manner through the familiar toolbox interface (see images
Extracts the points from the E57 format and stores them as LAS/LAZ files. This tool reads LiDAR in the E57 format from a *.e57 file and converts it to either standard LAS, compressed LAZ, or simple ASCII TXT. By default all scans contained in the E57 file are merged into
Spatial indexing of LiDAR data. Salzburg is a beautiful city in December. The European LiDAR Mapping Forum coincided with the days when the “Krampus” (= “Christmas monsters”) are roaming the Christmas markets in the old town to scare children and adults alike. One gave me a painful whipping in the legs

is almost identical to las2iso except that it can extract elevation contours from much much larger inputs. While las2iso operates in-core and is therefore limited to a maximum of around 20 million points, blast2iso utilizes unique “streaming TIN” technology and can seamlessly process up to 2 billion points. This tool is part of the BLAST extension of LAStools.

A simple open source tool with LGPL 2.1 license to validate whether a single or a folder of LAS or LAZ files conform to the LAS specification of the ASPRS. If something goes wrong during your LiDAR processing with LAStools it is good to run a lasvalidate check before asking a question in the LAStools user
This handy tool converts from points from bloated ASCII to binary LAS or compressed LAZ file. When you send us a support request for this tool please include a few lines (around 20 to 50) of your ASCII text representation as well the command lines (aka parse strings) that you
is a tool that splits LAS or LAZ files into multiple files based on some criteria. By default it splits the points into separate files based on the ‘point source ID’ field that usually contains the flightline ID. Others options are The last of these simply splits the input into
