15 Standards Activities LAS is an open binary file format for exchange of 3-D point cloud data. Although LAS was developed for exchange of LiDAR point cloud data, it supports the exchange of any 3-D x,y,z tuplet. There are discussion and efforts in OGC on developing an open LIDAR and point cloud standard. ASPRS owns and maintains LAS and would need to lead these efforts. Esri has been developing an Optimized LAS that is not intended to replace LAS but to enhance access to remotely stored LIDAR information for their users and supports development of an open LIDAR and point cloud standard. Agencies with LIDAR interests are encouraged to get involved. 15
