  • Importing LAS data

    Sometimes LIDAR survey data will come in a LAS file.  Here we show how to import a LAS file with 12 million points, pulling in just the data that we want. The data used in this example (Mt St Helens, post eruption) can be found here.

  • Importing tiled LAS data

    Importing data from a large LAS dataset (single LAS file) is pretty easy, as demonstrated here.  If the LAS dataset is tiled, it takes a little more effort.  This video tutorial shows how you can create a simple Python script to import a tiled LAS dataset and turn it into a surface rapidly.
