writers.matlab

The Matlab Writer supports writing Matlab .mat files.

The produced files have two variables, Dimensions and Points. Dimensions is a comma-delimited list of dimension names, and Points is a double array of all dimensions of every points. This output array can get very large very quickly.

Note

The Matlab writer requires the Mat-File API from MathWorks.

Example

{
  "pipeline":[
    {
      "type":"readers.las",
      "filename":"inputfile.las"
    },
    {
      "type":"writers.matlab",
      "output_dims":"X,Y,Z,Intensity",
      "filename":"outputfile.mat"
    }
  ]
}
