Display information about a LAS file in SAGA GIS
The new SAGA GIS version 2.0.7 comes with a new function to show information about a LiDAR LAS file. Functionally, it appears to be similar to the command line lasinfo.exe executable from the open source libLAS library. The command can be accessed from the main SAGA GIS application window as shown below.
