ASPRS LAS Specification

This repository is the official collaborative editing environment for the ASPRS LAS Working Group (LWG). We are responsible for maintaining the ASPRS LAS Specification, the remote sensing industry's most widely used file format for point cloud data.

The current published version of the ASPRS LAS Specification can be found at

Repo Contents

  • The source code folder contains the content of the specification itself. Everything else is the support codebase for generating the PDFs. You probably aren't interested in that.
  • The Wiki pages supplement the formal specification to assist with its interpretation and implementation.
  • The Issues page is your tool to request changes to the wiki pages or specification.
