A Rust library for working with point cloud data. It features:
- Fine-grained support for arbitrary point attributes, similar to PDAL, but with added type safety
- A very flexible memory model, natively supporting both Array-of-Structs (AoS) and Struct-of-Arrays (SoA) memory layouts
- Support for reading and writing various point cloud formats with the
- A growing set of algorithms with the
To this end,
pasture chooses flexibility over simplicity. If you are looking for something small and simple, for example to work with LAS files, try a crate like
las. If you are planning to implement high-performance tools and services that will work with very large point cloud data,
pasture is what you are looking for!
