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 < https://www.asprs.org/committee-general/laser-las-file-format-exchange-activities.html>. The LAZ file format is an open and lossless compression scheme for binary LAS format versions 1.0 to 1.3 < https://www.laszip.org/>.
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.

rlas contains code written by both Jean-Romain Roussel and Martin Isenburg. The latter is included
