Hello Friends,

I would like to know about how to export las files to excel, please advice on whether there is any plugin in MS Excel that will allow us to open las (with LiDAR data) files within excel or is there any converter for that. I am using MS Excel 2007.

Thanks in Advance,

Adam Johnson

.las files are files that are simple ASCII (text only) files, readable by Microsoft Word, Excel, or Notepad which makes it easy to be ported to different software for viewing, but rendering the data would be a different task.

Here is a link regarding LiDAR, provided here are some supports and related information to import and export LiDAR related files like .las files.

Also here is a link for an open source and free Geographic Information System (GIS) software you could try for geospatial data management and analysis, image processing, graphics/maps production, spatial modeling, and visualization.

And here is a link for your Microsoft Excel plugin which enables you to visualize your data in MS Excel.

Hi! I recommend to you  to download the "LASViewer". This application will allow you to view even a very large LAS file in a very fast speed. Can visualize any data that has intensity, class, elevation, flight line etc. you can also see these files in any text format. You can download a free trial for this on some websites or buy the complete version
