Playing with GRASS 7 (v.in.ply)

It is always interesting to play a little with the active development version of GRASS (actually GRASS 7).
Yesterday I had the time to try the ply importer (v.in.ply), written by Marcus Metz, and everything worked fine! By now I simply tested a ply pointcloud, but I plan to go on with the experiments and try something more complicate. In the image below you can see the ply visualized in GRASS 7 Map Display (I gave a different color to each point, basing on its z value) and (over the Layer Manager) the same file loaded in MeshLab.


By the way, if you want to try something similar, but you don't want to compile GRASS 7 in your system, there is a ply importer also for GRASS 6 (written by Marcus Neteler).
