las2dem

is a tool that triangulates LIDAR points from the LAS/LAZ format (or some ASCII format) into a temporary TIN and then rasters the TIN to create a DEM. The tool can either raster the ‘-elevation’, the ‘-slope’, the ‘-intensity’, the ‘-rgb’ values, or a ‘-hillshade’ or ‘-gray’ or ‘-false’ coloring. The output is either in BIL, ASC, IMG, FLT, XYZ, DTM, TIF, PNG or JPG format. For more details see the README file.
