Entwine is a data organization library for massive point clouds, designed to conquer datasets of trillions of points as well as desktop-scale point clouds. Entwine can index anything that is PDAL-readable, and can read/write to a variety of sources like S3 or Dropbox. Builds are completely lossless, so no points, metadata, or precision will be discarded even for terabyte-scale datasets.
Entwine is available under the LGPL License.
