Detailed Description

Creates a point cloud from a text file.The input file must have at least three columns holding the x, y, z coordinates of each point. You must specify the field index (i.e. the column) of these. Field index starts to count with 1. In case you like to import additional attributes, you have to provide the field indexes for those attributes with the -FIELDS option as integer numbers separated by semicolon (e.g. "-FIELDS=4;5;8").You have also to select the field separator that is used by the file and if the first line of the file should be skipped (in case it contains column headings).The columns in the input file can be in any order, and you can omit columns, but you have to provide the correct field index for those fields that you like to import.The tool usage differs slightly between SAGA GUI and SAGA CMD. With SAGA GUI you can specify names and types for additional fields in the 'Specifications' sub dialog. To do this using SAGA CMD you have to use the -FIELDNAMES and -FIELDTYPES options. The first one is for the field names, the second for the data type specification (see the GUI which number equals which data type). Again entries have to be separated by semicolons, e.g. "-FIELDNAMES=intensity;class;range -FIELDTYPES=2;2;3".
