Is it possible to open LAS files within MapInfo?

If so, how is accomplished in MapInfo 10.0?


Apparently not natively. This can however be done with plugins to Mapinfo such as Encom 3D


  • I take it that plugin costs unlike the MapBasic plugin?

  • I've used Engage 3D Pro by Encom and, yes, it does cost. From memory, between $2000 and $3000 Australian Dollars. It's a pretty decent program, though. If you don't want to pay top dollar, have a look at Global Mapper which is significantly cheaper. Also, there are several open source alternatives and you should be able to convert for use in MapInfo fairly painlessly.
