Solve LAS Interoperability Problems with FME

Restructure LAS files to suit the requirements of many applications using FME’s data transformation technology. For example:

  • Convert between LAS and hundreds of formats including ArcGIS Shapefile
  • Filter, clip or split files to reduce their size
  • Reproject coordinate systems

Also use FME to integrate LAS with other data formats. For example, create a 3D surface model by draping point clouds with rasters to give greater meaning to the points.
