readers.e57

The E57 Reader supports reading from E57 files.

The reader supports E57 files with Cartesian point clouds.

Note

E57 files can contain multiple point clouds stored in a single file. If that is the case, the reader will read all the points from all of the internal point clouds as one.

Only dimensions present in all of the point clouds will be read.

Note

Point clouds stored in spherical format are not supported.

Note

The E57 cartesianInvalidState dimension is mapped to the Omit PDAL dimension. A range filter can be used to filter out the invalid points.
