The user attempts to use the import DEM to LAS function in LP360 and receives the error message: “Failed to convert DEM Image file to LAS file: Error occurred converting DEM File: <filename>.<flt> to LAS File: <filename>.las”
Probable Resolution #1:
The error message is preventing the user from importing an extremely large DEM file and converting to LAS in LP360. The size of the LAS file generated from this size of DEM file would be very large, leading to usability issues. It is recommended to tile the DEM during export to keep the file sizes reasonable. Doing so will make it possible for the Import DEM to LAS to be successful.
