A LAS object contains the data and the header read in a .las file and additional values computed on the fly during loading.
LAS object contains a
data.table in the slot
the data read from a
.las file and other information computed during
data loading. The fields read from the las file are named:
X Y Z
3 other fields can be computed is desired:
pulseID: a unique identifying number for each pulse so the beam origin of each point is known (see laspulse)
flightlineID: a unique identifying number for the flightline so the flightline origin of each point is known (see lasflightline)
color: the hexadecimal name of the color of the point if R, G and B fields exist (see lascolor)
LAS object also contains a slot
@header which contains the
header of the
.las file. See the ASPRS documentation for the
LAS file format
for more information.
