LASzip Compression Details Published in PE&RS Journal Print E-mail
Written by rapidlasso   
Tuesday, 26 February 2013

Technology start-up rapidlasso GmbH has published the details of their popular LASzip LiDAR compressor in the February 2013 issue of the ASPRS journal PE&RS - a Special Issue on National Scale 3D Mapping edited by Jason Stoker of the USGS. The LASzip compression technology squeezes ASPRS LAS files into 5 to 13 times smaller LAZ files without any loss and has become the de-facto industry standard for compressed LiDAR. LASzip is used by large online data providers such as NOAA. OpenTopography, the National Land Survey of Finland, and the DNR Minnesota for disseminating Terabytes of LiDAR. The compressed LAZ format has native support in many popular software packages such as FME, GlobalMapper, LAStools, Scanopy, TopoDOT, CloudCompare, RiProcess, OPALS, and QT Modeler. LASzip has won the 2012 Geospatial World Forum Technology Innovation Award and was voted 2nd place for most innovative product at INTERGEO 2012.
