E57 file extension - 3D Imaging Data Exchange format file
What is e57 file? How to open e57 files?
File type specification:
The E57 file extension is used for E57 3D Imaging Data Exchange format developed by the Data Interoperability sub-committee of the ASTM E57 Committee on 3D Imaging Systems.
The E57 File Format for 3D Imaging Data Exchange is capable of storing point cloud data from laser scanners and other 3D imaging systems, as well as associated 2D imagery and core meta-data.
An .e57 file is encoded as a hierarchical tree structure, some of which is encoded in XML, and some of which is encoded in a binary format that is not XML. The bulk of the data, including point data and images, is encoded in the binary sections for efficiency. Metadata, such as sensor pose information, is encoded in XML. The binary sections are not embedded in the XML section. Instead, they are located in separate sections of the file and referenced from the XML section.
