       las2pg - LAS translation to PostgreSQL binary format


       las2pg [OPTIONS]


       las2pg performs LAS translation to PostgreSQL binary format with optional configuration.


       -h, -help, --help
              produce help message

       -v, --verbose
              Verbose message output

       --num_read_threads number
              Set number of threads

       -s, --skip_invalid
              Skip writing invalid point(s)

       -parse string, --parse string
              Specify what exactly to write for each row (default is xyz).  For example, 'txyzia'
              means that the first field of each row will be the gpstime, the next  three  fields
              will  be  the x, y, and z coordinates, the next field will be the intensity and the
              next field will be the scan angle.  The supported entries are:

              t - gpstime as double
              x - x coordinate as double
              y - y coordinate as double
              z - z coordinate as double
              a - scan angle as integer
              i - intensity as integer
              n - number of returns for given pulse as integer
              r - number of this return as integer
              c - classification number as integer
              u - user data as integer
              p - point source ID as integer
              e - edge of flight line as integer
              d - direction of scan flag as integer
              R - red channel of RGB color as integer
              G - green channel of RGB color as integer
              B - blue channel of RGB color as integer
              M - vertex index number as integer
              k - Morton 2D code using X and Y (unscaled and no offset) as bigint

       -moffset x,y, --moffset x,y
              Specify a global offset in X and Y to be used when computing the  Morton  2D  code.
              Values must be unscaled

       -check x,y, --check x,y
              Check  suitability  to  compute Morton 2D codes.  It checks specified scale matches
              the one in input file.  If --moffset is  provided  it  also  checks  that  obtained
              Morton 2D codes will be consistent, i.e. global X,Y within [0,2^31]

              Use STDOUT

       -i arg, -in arg, -input arg, --input arg
              file with the list las/laz files

       -o arg, -out arg, --out arg, --output arg
              output prefix


       Convert a las/laz file into PostgreSQL binary dump format, outputs output_name:

       las2pg -i input_file.las -o output_name

       Use  flag  --stdout to write to standard output (recommended use together with a pipe, see

       The intended use of this tool is by using the --stdout flag and a pipe  to  avoid  storing
       intermediate files.  Example:

       las2pg 1.2-with-color.laz --parse xyzRGBi --stdout | psql -c "copy flat from stdin with binary"

       This  obviously  require  a table called flat to be created in a PostgreSQL DB beforehand.
       The table must have the columns in the same order as specified by the --parse option,  and
       the column types must be the ones specified above.  Example:

       psql -c "create table flat (x double precision, y double precision, z double precision, r integer, g integer, b integer, i integer)"
