Importing a .las file error

I am trying to import a “.las” file into pix4d but I am getting the following error. “Load point cloud failed with error " Version minor out of range” (Failed!).

 

 

Is there any fix for this error ? 

 

Hey Kathrin,

Do you have the ability to export the point cloud as a LAZ file before importing it into Pix4Dmapper? If so, try this format and see if you get the same error. For more information about external point clouds, you can check this article https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/202560049-How-to-import-a-Point-Cloud-delivered-by-an-External-Source-into-Pix4Dmapper

Teodora,

 

I tried the .laz format and I am still having the same error, can you please recommend a valid solution. 

 

Thanks

 

Dear Kathryn, 

This error might be connected to the fact that you are using a different coordinate system. I would also try opening it in CloudCompare and see if it works.

Teodora,

I think I am using the correct projections for my project and the point cloud, I logged into my pix4d cloud account and uploaded the .LAS file and it opened fine ( see attached picture). I don’t know why this isn’t working?

Thanks

Hello again,

 

How big is the point cloud? Was it possible to open it in CloudCompare (http://www.danielgm.net/cc/release/)? It would be relevant to know this, because we are not sure if this is related to the dataset or the software itself.

Cheers,

Teodora
