Why am I getting a “No Points Read” error?
There are two common reasons for the no points read error. The first is if a user is importing ASCII XYZ data. Because ASCII XYZ is not standardized and is a flat text file, the user must define the x, the y, and the z (and intensity if it exists) columns in the Import Settings window. If these columns are not entered in properly, the software is unable to read the points. The second common reason for the error is using LAS data. In the LAS Import Settings window, if a user has set the software to filter on a given classification, and that classification does not exist in the data, then the error will occur.
