Lidar data GeoTiff format

The Lidar data is now available in GeoTiff format. 

The vast majority of software’s including QGIS, ArcGIS, GRASS & AutoCAD Civil3D are able to open a GeoTiff file in the same way as the previous ASCII file.

If you do experience any issues we have put together some links on converting between file formats on the Blogs and Guides section of our storymap. This is a straightforward conversion process in GIS software or can be achieved with a few lines of code.

I hope this helps

Is the GeoTiff format lossless compared to the ASCII version?
