The Mass Points Processor was introduced and has been evolving for years. We recently added what could be considered the best improvement yet, the ability to download directly using it eliminating the need to jump through the usual hoops with a browser.

Note that in the initial release it only contains support for USA, Kentucky. However, we will be continually looking for other states and agencies that provide the intelligent data resources needed to make this work.

When an agency supplies .LAS files (even inside a ZIP) we convert to .LAZ for maximum compression. For example (Ohio files) the resulting .LAZ was 2.5 times smaller than Zipped LAS files.

We have found that several US states provide for the 5000'x5000' tile approach and we will continue to add these as time allows. If you suspect your agency may be a candidate, contact us. To be a candidate there must be a logical tile grid where the filename contains (part of) the north/east coordinate and direct file download (no delayed ordering, etc).
