Read and write 'las' and 'laz' binary file formats. The LAS file format is a public file format for the interchange of 3-dimensional point cloud data between data users. The LAS specifications are approved by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. The LAZ file format is an open and lossless compression scheme for binary LAS format versions 1.0 to 1.3.
R package to read and write
.laz binary files used to store LiDAR data.
rlas relies on a modified version of the open source parts of LAStools.
LASzip were modified to be compatible with
R. The library can therefore be compiled into
R without any complaints from
R CMD check.
It enables users to read and write into R binary files commonly used to store LiDAR data.
las.data = readlasdata("<myfile.las>")las.header = readlasheader("<myfile.las>")
This package contains C++ code. To install the package from github make sure you have a working development environment.
