Importing LAZ-files to ArcGIS 10.6.1.
« on: January 21, 2019, 11:39:39 AM »
I am trying to import LAZ-files from PhotoScan 1.4.3 into ArcGIS 10.6.1.
Then I get a format error. Does it mean them the LAZ-files from PhotoScan does not comply with the standard LAZ-format, or am I messing with parameters?

Hello SACO,

Can the same be observed for LAZ export from Metashape 1.5.0? Which coordinate system you are using for the export?

I am still just using Metashape jist on a second computer in DEMO mode. This due risk for problems on my main photogrammetry processing computer running 3 exstra graphic cards, ADM Firepro W7000 . I tried to upgrade to latest driver version for those and get trouble running PhotoScan so I had to remove the upgraded drivers

Hello SACO,

Metashape has built-in trial activation option, so if you have a possibility to export LAZ from the version 1.5.0 using the same source project and parameters, it would be helpful to know if there are any compatibility issues with ArcGIS.

If the issue persists, please provide the screenshot or the text of the error message in ArcGIS.

And whether you have any positive experience working with LAZ format in ArcGIS? Is it supported by your version of the application?

Hi.
I will work on this because ArcGIS is a key-software for me to do analysis.
Is it ok that I am using the shared folder in Dropbox to provide you description and examples for from what I am doing and the possible problems I get?

When exporting pointcloud to ASPRS LAS.las it works fine to just drag and drop it into ArcMap 10.6.1.

Hello SACO,

Is it possible that LAZ format is not supported by ArcMap?
