lidario.Translator translate a given data structure (ie: a raster), to a point cloud (ie: a numpy array).

import lidario as lio

# Translate a raster to a numpy point cloud.
translator = lio.Translator("geotiff", "np")
point_cloud = translator.translate("/path/to/file.tif")

# point_cloud: np.array([...])

In this example, we initialize a Translator object to convert a geotiff file into a numpy array cloud point. Then, we use this object to effectively convert a tif file.
