I want to import a ply file in GRASS using v.in.ply . However, I don't know what I should write in the "input =" field . Should I paste the way to my file on my computer (C:\Users\Marion\Documents\Photogrammetrie\test)? I tried doing so and it send me the error : "cannot open input file". If not what should I put?

    The name or the path of the .ply file

  • I out the path of the file but I get an error: "Binary PLY format is not yet supported", have you ever had it? Jun 2, 2018 at 11:42
  • The PLY file format has 3 formats: ascii, binary_little_endian and binary_big_endian. v.in.ply only reads the ascii format
