What is an E57 file?

3D image file created in the ASTM E57 format, a format used for storing data captured by 3D imaging systems; saves LIDAR (light detection and ranging) data, which was captured by 3D range cameras; enables remote sensing data to be saved in a vendor-neutral format.

More Information

E57 files can be used for rendering images of real-world objects, such as buildings, atmospheric entities (e.g., clouds), and geological surfaces. This can be useful in construction, surveying, engineering, and research.

NOTE: The E57 format uses a combination of binary and XML data.
