Frequently asked question

Is it possible to display LAZ files in ArcGIS Pro?

Last Published: July 20, 2020


Unlike LAS (.las) files, LAZ (.laz) files cannot be opened or added directly to ArcGIS Pro to display point cloud data on a map. However, it is possible to convert the LAZ files to LAS datasets to display on the map. Use the Convert LAS tool to convert the LAZ file to a LAS dataset, and fill in the tool parameters as required. Refer to Convert LAS for more information on the tool.
