The tutorials I have watched have said to use the Las Lidar point import function in grass but for some reason this is option is not available for me. Is there a solution for this? Am I just doing something wrong?

I suppose that LAS support has not been packaged.

The easiest way for you might be to install the PDAL software
(https://pdal.io/) as well and then use this addon:


Install it with:
g.extension r.in.pdal

It is a wrapper around the `pdal` binary and will do the job.

Hope this helps,
