Hi,

I have been using the new Geoscience website (http://elevation.fsdf.org.au/) to get free lidar tiles.

However, I am getting point cloud .las files which I haven't used before.

When I try to import them under DATAINPUT>POINT CLOUD>LAS>Import LAS I get "finished reading data - no files read"

And I get no data come in. I have opened the LAS in textpad and its all encoded, but the fact that it is 40mB clearly tells me there is plenty of data to read.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Ashley Flower

Hey Ashley,

Not sure if you sorted this by now, but when downloading from Geoscience, the point cloud format is .laz which is a compressed format. You need to convert it to las to enable it to be read into 12d.

There are download tools available to do this for free, such as laszip (https://www.laszip.org/).

Good luck
