FAQ: Is it possible to display LAZ files in ArcGIS Pro?

Question

Is it possible to display LAZ files in ArcGIS Pro?

Answer

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.
