Trimble Lidar point clouds .la20

Trimble Lidar point clouds .la20

Trimble Lidar point clouds .la20

We have client-owned lidar point cloud data available in .la20 format files.
We understand this to be a Trimble-proprietary file format.

We have no investment into the Trimble software ecosystem, and already have tools and workflows to use the more common .las and .laz point cloud files.

Can anyone suggest a tool to convert .la20 to .las or .laz?

RE: Trimble Lidar point clouds .la20

Tell your client to get the surveyor not to provide things in Trimble proprietary outputs. Engineers work in CAD typically and the surveyor should make the output fit your requirements.

RE: Trimble Lidar point clouds .la20

Advise your customer to get the assessor not to give things in Trimble restrictive yields. Architects work in CAD regularly and the assessor should make the yield fit your prerequisites
