Translating TerraSolid .bin to ASPRS LAS

15 Apr 2009 | mloskot

New LiDAR data translator has been added to the collection of libLAS utilities (docs). Two days ago, Howard submitted first version of ts2las program which can be used to convert .bin files produced with TerraScan software from TerraSolid to .las file in ASPRS LAS 1.2 format:

ts2las -i input.bin -o output.las

The nice thing is that users will be are able to translate files in TerraSolid .bin format without loading MicroStation software.

The ts2las is expected to be included in libLAS 1.3 release. In the meantime, testers are strongly welcome and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
