Create LAS Files by Transforming Data in E57

E57 is a compact, vendor-neutral format for storing point clouds, images, and metadata produced by 3D imaging systems, such as laser scanners. A single E57 file may contain any number of point clouds and rasters. Using FME you can transform ASTM E57 files into LAS and extend the value of your point cloud data by converting it into this popular LiDAR file format. And that's just the start. FME also contains a transformers category for Point Clouds that includes 28 different transformers for manipulating point cloud data, and there's much more on Getting Started with Point Clouds in our knowledge base.

Create Simple E57 to LAS Workflows

FME has a very intuitive and easy-to-use graphical user interface. No coding is required! With a variety of transformers to choose from, you can ensure that your new, customized files turn out exactly the way you want them. Simplify the information contained in your ASTM E57 file by using the TestFilter to perform queries, or use the AttributeCreator to create new values and get your new optimized LAS file in no time.
