TerraScan Supported Point File Formats

TerraScan has built-in support for the following laser point file formats:
T = text file format
R = read files
B = binary file format
W = write files

Name: Type: Content:
FASTBINARY B R/W TerraScan Fast binary (FBI).
SCAN8 B R/W TerraScan binary with 8 bit flightline numbers (BIN).
SCAN16 B R/W TerraScan binary with 16 bit flightline numbers (BIN).
TOPEYE B R TopEye binary (DTE) with geocentric coordinates.
EARTHDATA B R/W EarthData binary (EBN or EEBN).
LEICA B R Leica-Helava binary (LDI).
LAS B R/W Industry standard format, versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.2
LAS B R Industry standard format, version 1.3
LAS B R/W Industry standard format, version 1.4 (Only in CONNECT edition versions)

*LAS 1.4 limitations:

does not store coordinate system information (WKT)

LAZ B R/W Compressed LAS format, versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4
PTS T R Leica PTS format
XYZ T R/W Easting Northing Elevation
CXYZ T R/W Class Easting Northing Elevation
XYZI T R/W Easting Northing Elevation Intensity

TXYZXYZII T R Time East1 North1 Elev1 East2 North2 Elev2 Intensity1 Intensity2
TXYZI T R Time Easting Northing Elevation Intensity
XYZIXYZI T R East1 North1 Elev1 Intensity1 East2 North2 Elev2 Intensity2
TXYZIXYZI T R Time East1 North1 Elev1 Intensity1 East2 North2 Elev2 Intensity2
Grass Sites T W
XYZdZ T W Easting Northing Elevation Elevation difference to a surface
IdXYZ T W Index Easting Northing Elevation
IdXYZP T W Index Easting Northing Elevation Pulse number

In some dialogs, E is used instead of X and N is used instead of Y in order to refer to the easting and northing coordinates, respectively.
