1) Z+F own file format (ZFS) from a static scan using a tripod can be converted to ASCII pts file as final DTM point cloud.
2) RIEGL own file format (RXP) from a static scan using a tripod can be converted to ASCII pts file as final DTM point cloud.

3) FARO Focus3D integrated in MDL/Renishaw HD100 Dynascan. Manufacturers own file format (DFB) can be imported in a recorded QINSy database, containing position, heading and motion data.

4) Manufacturer 2G Robotics is capable of creating DFB files, which can be imported in a recorded QINSy database, containing position, heading and motion data.
5) Manufacturer Cathx Ocean creates ASCII files (PCP, Point Cloud Polar File format) which can be imported in a recorded QINSy database, containing position, heading and motion data.
