pasture

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 pasture-io crate
  • A growing set of algorithms with the pasture-algorithms crate

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!
