I have a Leica C10 terrestrial LiDAR (laser scanner) system. The system creates and stores point cloud data in a proprietary .bin file. Currently I have to use Leica's proprietary LiDAR software, Cyclone, to convert the files generated by the system to a format (e.g. LAS, e57, or ASCII) that can be read by other open-source software for processing point cloud data. Does anybody know of an open-source software that can read and convert the C10 .bin format? There does not appear to be a public description of the file format such that I can write my own translation tool.
You might check whether or not the C10 .bin file is actually a TerraSolid file. PDAL provides a reader for TerraSolid .bin plus numerous other point cloud formats.
