When importing/exporting files with SCENE, using ordered or unordered formats will affect which file types are available to use.
An ordered scan is recorded by a Laser Scanner with data records that include position, reflectance, and color for single scan points. These points are organized with row and column information.
An unordered scan is a collection of points in space. These point cloud scans are organized in a spatial data structure that facilitates fast visualization of scan points and automated point loading based on point visibility.
Unordered scan formats include: E57, VRML, DXF, XYZ Text, XYZ Binary, IGES, PTS and POD.
Ordered scan formats include: FLS and PTX.
