I recently saw this link how to install LAStools toolbox to QGIS. The problem is that the instructions are only for Windows users. Now I wonder if it's possible to install LAStools on a Mac with QGIS or if there are any other LAS plugins that could be used on a mac?


You can install libLAS:

Or you can use GRASS GRASS GIS Wiki: Lidar or Cloud Compare with a new Mac OS X port Mac OS X: CloudCompare

  • Tried installing libLAS before with Homebrew but got into trouble. Now it works! Is it possible to use libLAS inside QGIS? – oskarlin Mar 19 '14 at 14:18

I found this solution which sounds promising even though it's not really a Mac version.
