writers.sqlite

The SQLite driver outputs point cloud data into a PDAL-sepecific scheme that matches the approach of readers.pgpointcloud and readers.oci.

Dynamic Plugin

This stage requires a dynamic plugin to operate

Example

[
    {
        "type":"readers.las",
        "filename":"inputfile.las"
    },
    {
        "type":"filters.chipper",
        "capacity":50
    },
    {
        "type":"writers.sqlite",
        "connection":"output.sqlite",
        "cloud_table_name":"SIMPLE_CLOUD",
        "pre_sql":"",
        "post_sql":"",
        "block_table_name":"SIMPLE_BLOCKS",
        "cloud_column_name":"CLOUD",
        "filename":"outputfile.pcd"
    }
]

Options

connection
SQLite filename [Required]
cloud_table_name
Name of table to store cloud (file) information [Required]
block_table_name
Name of table to store patch information [Required]
cloud_column_name
Name of column to store primary cloud_id key [Default: “cloud”]
compression
Use LAZperf compression technique to store patches. [Default: false]
overwrite
Drop the table before writing. To append to the table set to false. [Default: true]
pre_sql
Optional SQL to execute before running the translation. If the value references a file, the file is read and any SQL inside is executed. Otherwise the value is executed as SQL itself.
post_sql
Optional SQL to execute after running the translation. If the value references a file, the file is read and any SQL inside is executed. Otherwise the value is executed as SQL itself.
scale_x, scale_y, scale_z / offset_x, offset_y, offset_z
If ANY of these options are specified the X, Y and Z dimensions are adjusted by subtracting the offset and then dividing the values by the specified scaling factor before being written as 32-bit integers (as opposed to double precision values). If any of these options is specified, unspecified scale_<x,y,x> options are given the value of 1.0 and unspecified offset_<x,y,z> are given the value of 0.0.
output_dims
If specified, limits the dimensions written for each point. Dimensions are listed by name and separated by commas.
