Q: What is the file format for my ASCII LiDAR data files?

A:

The ASCII LiDAR files are formatted as follows:

Time, Easting, Northing, elevation, intensity, classification, return number, scan angle rank

This is also given in the readme file that should be included with your data.

Each entry in the list is a single LiDAR return. If you prefer to deal with LAS format data, the text files can be converted to LAS format using third-party software (we use LASTools, see http://www.cs.unc.edu/~isenburg/lastools/ - the program to do this is txt2las.exe).
