Checklist before uploading data

Each upload is done according to its data type. Make sure you select the correct upload page for your data!
You can always open multiple tabs for uploading multiple data types, to speed up the process.

You can find specific upload instructions for each data type in the menu on the left.


Once you are ready to upload make sure:

  1. You have data and you know the data type
    • Data types:
      • Point clouds in LAS, LAZ, E57 format, in projected Coordinate Reference System
      • Ortho photos: TIF (+TFW), JP2/JPG + JGW, PNG + PGW
      • Surface data, elevation data (DTM, DSM): TIF (+TFW) (LandXML coming soon!)
      • Original drone images (Geo-tagged)
      • 360 images (Images as “equirectangular 2:1 ratio”, JPG format and orientations from image or as CSV (contact for more info))
      • If you have other data (e.g. vector data), contact to get help uploading it. We can add some other data formats (DXF, SHP, DWG… and other “open” formats) manually to your site. (We manually convert them into raster data (GeoTIFF etc.)
  2. You have done preprocessing to your data
    • Data types:
      • Point clouds can be cleaned and classified
        • you can upload multiple files at once. In this case they will be merged together to be one layer.
      • Rasters must be geolocated or have a known XYZ shift.
        • You can upload only ONE raster at a time. Merge rasters beforehand if needed (open source options: QGIS, GDAL Merge,…)
  3. You know the data’s coordinate system and the EPSG code. Code numbers are listed at
  4. The data files are named rationally. The names cannot be changed after uploading.
  5. You have the Editor or Owner role in the Site to be able to upload. Site Owner or Pointscene support can help if you are not.

Note! Pointscene is happy to help you with your data. The system is developing all the time, so we will support more and more data types as time goes by! Contact us if you have any problems!
