LAStools: Converting, Viewing, and Compressing LIDAR Data in LAS Format
Entry ID: lastools


Summary
Abstract: LAStools: Converting, Viewing, and Compressing LIDAR Data in LAS Format is a powerful, free set of command line utilities for converting, viewing, compressing, and performing other processing tasks for LIDAR data in LAS format. Many of the tools require that they be executed from the command line and are initially less user friendly since they lack a graphical user interface (GUI). However, once comfortable with these tools you will hopefully see how powerful they can be. In order to manage large dataset or batch process data, these tools could be scripted to semi-automate processing.
