[Qgis-developer] Lidar data into QGIS

Hello Alvaro,

I just writed a program that displays in real time LiDAR point cloud data.

That program, named "LaserDrink" reads quickly TerraSolid Laser BIN format
( the father of LAS ... )  and writes a temporary WRL file that the Coin3D
viewer, then,  displays.
My temp WRL  contains the point cloud "class", or the "RGB" photo color, or
the color by height.   Also, the point aspect can be set, and it is
possible to display them greater or smaller, to realize a "3D photo" like

OK, this was LaserDrink.    BTW, with it, I could insert TODAY the support
in QGis of LiDAR poin cloud real time display.

Someone is interested ?
