File format information for TIF to XYZ

Extension: TIF

Full Name: Tag Image File Format

Type: Image

Mime Type: image/tiff

Format: Binary

Description

The TIF file extension is a raster graphics file format originally created in 1986 making it one of the older image file formats available. The format was created by Aldus Corporation (Now Adobe) for use in Desktop Publishing software is still a popular format which is still in use today.

The format has evolved over time from its original use in DTP applications, Fax machine software, Optical Character Recognition software and more. TIF files are binary and can contain one or more images arranged in a rectangular data format within the file.

Extension: XYZ

Full Name: Point Cloud

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: text/plain

Format: Text

Description

The XYZ is a 3D file format used for representing 3D Point Clouds. The format contains only positional information (X, Y, Z coordinates) for the individual points. The format is often used for digital elevation modelling of terrain for later processing in 3D modelling applications.

As the format only contains positional information a common task is to convert this into a fully surfaced 3D model using methods such as Alpha Shapes or Delaunay Triangulation. The format can also be viewed without further processing in its raw format.

XYZ Notes

Only vertex information will be saved to the XYZ Point Cloud file generated by our tool, all other information such as faces and material colors will be discarded in the final file due to this information not being supported.

When creating a preview of the XYZ file our tool will render the Point Cloud as individual squares.

Supported Features

  • Mesh vertex data
