The Latest Update on libLAS

Howard Butler has just informed me that he has released libLAS 1.6.0. Some of the new features are:

  • Compression/decompression support via LASzip
  • Octree indexing
  • Tiling support via lasblock
  • Loading data to Oracle Point Cloud via las2oci
  • Horizontal and vertical reprojection
  • XML summary output via lasinf

Howard continues on with his mission to continually improve LAS. He wanted me to note that he has a mailing list if you would like to join click here.

The LiDAR industry owes Howard a significant debt of gratitude. Thanks for doing this Howard.
