writers.sqlite

The SQLite driver outputs point cloud data into a PDAL-sepecific scheme that matches the approach of readers.pgpointcloud and readers.oci.

Dynamic Plugin

This stage requires a dynamic plugin to operate

Example

{
  "pipeline":[
    {
      "type":"readers.las",
      "filename":"inputfile.las"
    },
    {
      "type":"filters.chipper",
      "capacity":50
    }
    {
      "type":"writers.sqlite",
      "connection":"output.sqlite",
      "cloud_table_name":"SIMPLE_CLOUD",
      "pre_sql":"",
      "post_sql":"",
      "block_table_name":"SIMPLE_BLOCKS",
      "cloud_column_name":"CLOUD",
      "filename":"outputfile.pcd"
    }
  ]
}

Options

connection
SQLite filename [Required]
cloud_table_name
Name of table to store cloud (file) information [Required]
block_table_name
Name of table to store patch information [Required]
cloud_column_name
Name of column to store primary cloud_id key [Default: cloud]
compression
Use https://github.com/verma/laz-perf compression technique to store patches
overwrite
To drop the table before writing set to ‘true’. To append to the table set to ‘false’. [Default: true]
pre_sql
Optional SQL to execute before running the translation. If the value references a file, the file is read and any SQL inside is executed. Otherwise the value is executed as SQL itself.
post_sql
Optional SQL to execute after running the translation. If the value references a file, the file is read and any SQL inside is executed. Otherwise the value is executed as SQL itself.
scale_x, scale_y, scale_z / offset_x, offset_y, offset_z
If ANY of these options are specified the X, Y and Z dimensions are adjusted by subtracting the offset and then dividing the values by the specified scaling factor before being written as 32-bit integers (as opposed to double precision values). If any of these options is specified, unspecified scale_<x,y,x> options are given the value of 1.0 and unspecified offset_<x,y,z> are given the value of 0.0.
output_dims
If specified, limits the dimensions written for each point. Dimensions are listed by name and separated by commas.
