rapidlasso GmbH was founded in 2012 by lidar pioneer Dr. Martin Isenburg. The company’s flagship product, the LAStools software suite, is a collection of 56 highly efficient, batch-scriptable, multicore command-line tools for processing point clouds. All tools can be run from the command line via the new native GUI *laslook* or via toolboxes (ArcGIS PRO, QGIS, FME, Erdas).
“Tools for a Better Tomorrow:…..
LAStools are popular for their blazing speed and high productivity. The software combines robust algorithms with efficient I/O and memory-efficient management to achieve high throughput for datasets containing billions of points. The software runs on Windows and Linux. It has deep market-penetration and is widely used across industry, government agencies, research labs, and educational institutions. The ability to script the modules makes them ideal for use on web servers or in the cloud” (Lidar Magazine, 2023).
Dr. Martin Isenburg was a lecturer at the SPLIT REMOTE SENSING Summer School for six years, from 2014-2019.
