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.

  1. Start SAGA GIS.

  2. Select Modules | File | Shapes | Import | LAS Info.

    The LAS Info dialog box appears.
  3. Click the LAS File row. Then click the browse [...] button.

    The Open dialog box appears.
  4. Browse and select a LAS file, e.g. lub_tile1.las. Click Open.

  5. Optional. Toggle on Only Header Info if you do not want to scan and summarize the entire LAS file.
  6. Click Okay.

    The Messages pane shows the information about the selected LAS file.
