libLAS is a C/C++ library for reading and writing ASPRS LAS versions
1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 data. The LAS format is a sequential binary format
used to store data from sensors and as intermediate processing storage
by some LiDAR-related applications. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging)
is an optical remote sensing technology that measures properties of
scattered light to find range and/or other information of a distant
target. The prevalent method to determine distance to an object or
surface is to use laser pulses.
This package contains a Python module to use libLAS.
