Free LIDAR viewer

It is always nice to get something useful for free. Sometimes it is data, sometimes it is an application. QCoherenet is well known for its product LP360. At least if you are working with LIDAR data. They made a free viewer for LIDAR or LAS files.

Here is what LP Viewer does:

LP Viewer is a free standalone viewer (Windows OS) that provides unlimited file loading/access, on-the-fly tinning and contouring, our custom viewing toggles built specifically for LiDAR, importing ASCII, 2D, 3D, and profile visualization. As with all of our products, an entire city, county, or consortium's full LiDAR dataset can be loaded into LP Viewer.

There is a little catch. Viewer is part of the LP360 product evaluation. Evaluation period is 30 days and after that you have LP Viewer to keep and use. After all, this is not a bad thing - you get to use full product for a month and still have free viewer (and not just a viewer).

Full details about the Viewer are available here and evaluation version can be downloaded after registration on this page.
