readers.pgpointcloud

The PostgreSQL Pointcloud Reader allows you to read points from a PostgreSQL database with PostgreSQL Pointcloud extension enabled. The Pointcloud extension stores point cloud data in tables that contain rows of patches. Each patch in turn contains a large number of spatially nearby points.

The reader pulls patches from a table, potentially sub-setting the query with a “where” clause.
