I can't load my las/laz deliverable into another program!

Some software programs only support old versions of the las/laz spec. Download in "Compatibility Mode".

The default las / laz spec for LiDAR files on the Rock Cloud is LAS 1.4 (Nov 2011). Some LiDAR software vendors have yet to upgrade to this spec and are on the older LAS 1.2 (Sep 2008) spec. The Rock Cloud now allows you to export your dataset using the LAZ (Compatibility Mode) for these older integrations.
