writers.null

The null writer discards its input. No point output is produced when using a null writer.

Example

{
  "pipeline":[
    {
      "type":"readers.las",
      "filename":"inputfile.las"
    },
    {
      "type":"filters.hexbin"
    },
    {
      "type":"writers.null",
    }
  ]
}

When used with an option that forces metadata output, like –pipeline-serialization, this pipeline will create a hex boundary for the input file, but no output point data file will be produced.

Options

The null writer discards all passed options.
