lasblock - pre-process LAS files into blocks


[-h | [-c arg] [-p arg] -i arg [-o arg] [-v] ]


lasblock displays LAS file details with optional output filters. While lasblock can do a few simple operations like updating header information, more drastic changes, like removing points or altering values, will require las2las(1).


Produce help message
Number of points to nominally put into each block (note that this number will not be exact). Default: 3000
Number of decimal points to write for each bbox. Default: 8
input LAS file
The output .kdx file (defaults to input filename + .kdx)
Verbose message output


Block a file, and write out blocks with 6 decimals of precision with a nominal capacity of 3000 points per block:

lasblock -c 3001 -p 6 myfile.las

Note. If no capacity is specified with -c, 10000 is assumed.

Note. lasblock will always write out a myfile.las.kdx file name by default, but you can override the output name with a -o command-line switch.
