I have succesfully brought Lidar XYZ files into Leica Photogrammetry
Suite (softcopy package). XYZ files are not immediately readable by
ArcInfo, but can be easily made to be. Simply open the file in a text
editor, go to the last record, hit ENTER and add END to the end of the
file and save. It can now be read by Arc Generate. The file will look
like this: yyyyyy.yyy zzz.zzz yyyyyy.yyy zzz.zzz yyyyyy.yyy zzz.zzz yyyyyy.yyy zzz.zzz

Good Luck,

Does anyone have experience dealing with XYZI files from LiDAR scan?
