The Points File Format
A Point file format is basically a text file containing the x, y and z coordinates of a point on each line. Usually the coordinates are stored in the XYZ. However, points are sometimes stored in the YXZ order. This is common in survey data where the YXZ order is referred to Northing, Easting and Elevation. Here is an example of a point file with points stored in the XYZ order.
