Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.5.6nb1, Package name: pdal-lib-2.5.6nb1, Maintainer: thomas.orgis

PDAL is Point Data Abstraction Library. It is a C/C++ open source library
and applications for translating and processing point cloud data. It is
not limited to LiDAR data, although the focus and impetus for many of
the tools in the library have their origins in LiDAR.

    Arbiter credentials now support profiles #3792

Changes of Note


    #3769 workshop documentation updates (Thanks @j9ac9k!)

Changes of Note

    writers.copc now sorts chunks by GPStime, allowing better compression.
    Various warnings for newer compilers have been eliminated.


    Errors from the geotiff library are now directed to the console
    (standard error).
    readers.bpf now adds a count of the number of points to metadata.
    The pdal info command now always writes a GeoJSON metadata entry of
    the area boundary called boundary_json.

Changes of Note

    A compiler that supports C++17 is now required to build PDAL or
    include PDAL headers in your code.
    The PDAL_STATIC_BUILD cmake option has been removed. We do not
    support building PDAL as a static library, though it may work.
    The behavior of readers.ept when specifying both bounds and polygon
    options has changed such that a point must pass both the filters
    independently in order to be accepted. (#3506)
    readers.ept will now ignore the spatial reference on a clip region
    if the point source has no spatial reference. This behavior is
    consistent with filters.crop. (#3580)
    readers.las and writers.las no longer support the laszip library. Both
    stages now use the lazperf library, which is embedded into the PDAL
    library. The compression option is still accepted in readers.las, but
    is ignored. The compression option on writers.las still accepts the
    LASZIP and LAZPERF , but those values are treated the same as TRUE.
    PDAL now builds on MinGW, though future support depends on community
    Source code supporting las and ept has been moved to a private

New Stages

    readers.copc and writers.copc have been added to support reading
    and writing of COPC files.
    readers.smrmsg was added to read from post-processed MMS accuracy
    files to be used with SBET data.


    The performance of filters.litree has been improved. (#3518)
    Support for time query/storage in readers.tiledb and writers.tiledb
    has been added. (#3495)
    Added various remote access support (AWS Fargate, AWS session token
    support, Azure SAS token support). (#3496)
    An error is now reported when reading a pipeline with multiple
    leaf nodes.
    Support for beam direction and origin in readers.rxp has been
    added. (#3565)
    Add a cmake macro PDAL_CREATE_PLUGIN that may simplify the creation
    of some PDAL plugin stages. (#3588)
    writers.null is now streamable. (#3591)
    Added support for multiple output files in writers.ply (#3617 -
    Thanks @longhuan2018)
    filters.csf now permits selective output of debugging/analysis
    files. (#3488)
    Comments in JSON input files (pipelines) are now supported. (#3670)
    Added support in writers.las for creating VLRs from metadata. (#3683)
    Added query support origin query in version 1.1 of EPT. (#3505)

Changes of Note

    GDAL version 3 is now required. (#3428)
    readers.tiledb now defaults to unordered reads. (#3267)
    readers.tiledb now supports Hilbert ordering. (#3345)
    writers.pcd now writes 32-bit floating point for X, Y and Z by
    default. (#3286)
    The GDAL error handler is redirected to its destination when PDAL
    logging stops. (#3244)

New Command

    Added pdal eval to print a classification report from two input
    point clouds. (#3346)
    Added pdal chamfer to calculate the chamfer distance, a metric used
    to quantify the similarity of two point clouds by evaluating the mean
    square distance of nearest neighbor correspondences between clouds.

New Stages

    filters.gpstimeconvert allows conversion between the various GPS
    time standards.
    filters.teaser uses the truncated least squares estimation and
    semidefinite relaxation (TEASER) algorithm to create a rigid
    transformation between two datasets.
    readers.draco reads the Draco format.
    writers.draco writes the Draco format.
    filters.zsmooth sets a dimension to a value determined by nearby
    points. (#3408)

Removed Stages



    pdal pipeline and pdal translate now support a --dims option that
    allows the stored dimensions to be easily controlled. (#3310)
    readers.las now reports and terminates on some previously undetected
    LAS file errors. (#3226)
    Added override_srs and default_srs options to readers.gdal to allow
    a raster with only NODATA to have an SRS. (#3271)
    Support was added for MSVC 2019. (#3292)
    Added text output of GeoTIFF keys to metadata when reading LAS
    data. (#3299)
    Added programmatic support to merge summary statistics. (#3321)
    Extra dimension names in a LAS file containing characters deemed
    illegal by PDAL are now converted by default to legal PDAL dimension
    names. (#3325)
    The sample filter is now streamable. (#3275)
    Added the --error_on_failure option to filters.reprojection to allow
    the program to terminate if a projection operation fails. (#3316)
    Added the --start option to readers.las to allow skipping some number
    of points. (#3313)
    Set the `ACCEPT_ENCODING' curl option to enable automatic
    decompression of HTTP replies.
    Improve error messages for LAS where a specified point format is
    not permitted. (#3324)
    Add the --where option to all writers. (#3319)
    Added a --nosrs option to readers.las to avoid reading the SRS
    information. (#3441)
    Improved performance of readers.ept in stream mode. (#3331)
