Las-data as input to Bathymetry extension?

Dear Forum.


Im new to raster and bathymetries.


What I can read I am able to register All ArcGIS Supported Raster datasets and point featureclasses with the Bathymetry extension.


However I have a lot of XYZ-data and would like to keep the details of the data and don't convert the data in to a point featureclass (los of performance and use of space) or a raster (los of flexibility?).


It seems to me that the LAS-format is quite flexible and as such I would like to convert my data in to this format. However LAS-data cannot be registered with the Bathymetry extension.


Is this misunderstood use of the Bathymetry extension or of the xyz-data.


What I would like to accomplish (probably with the Bathymetry extension) is to save my bathymetry data in a flexible, detailed format and be able to easily find and use those data.


Regards Anne.
