Converting XYZ to LAT,LON,HGT

Converting RiScan output (XYZ)  to  WGS84 LAT,LON,HGT   

Will also convert to lat,lon,alt,R,G,B,A

  • Download nlastools.zip
  • Unzip the file to get a nlastools directory.
  • In there is a lidar2csv.sh script.
   Note: This needs to have Java 1.6 in your path.

  • You run it with: sh ~/nlastools/lidar2csv.sh -header lowres_Polydata001.txt

Also attached is a lidar.properties file. Place this in the directory where your data files are. This defines the coordinate reference system (I assume wgs84) and the fields.

Note - the above conversion outputs:
#longitude[unit="degrees"],latitude[unit="degrees"],altitude[unit="m"],red[],green[],blue[],amplitude[]

This nlastools package is new and hasn’t been used very much so any feedback would be appreciated.
