Brett,

i tried a different way to solve the problem, using :

#############
import os

fpath = '/Users/sasha/py/'
input_fp = open( os.path.join(fpath, 'BE3730072600WC20050817.txt'), 'r' )

N = 234560.94503118
S = 234482.56929822
E = 921336.53116178
W = 921185.3779625

xL = []
yL = []
zL = []

for index, line in enumerate( input_file ):
if index == 0:
else:
x, y, z = line.split(',')
xL.append( float(x) * 0.3048006096012 )
yL.append( float(y) * 0.3048006096012 )
zL.append( float(z) * 0.3048006096012 )

xLr = []
yLr = []
zLr = []

for coords in zip(xL, yL, zL):
if W < coords[0] < E and S < coords[1] < N:
xLr.append( coords[0] )
yLr.append( coords[1] )
zLr.append( coords[2] )

elements = len(xLr)
minZ = min(zLr)
maxZ = max(zLr)

############

using the same input file i posted early,
it give me  966 elements

the input file contains 158734 elements, this means the mask code :

> 	mask |= mydata[:,0] < E
> 	mask |= mydata[:,0] > W
> 	mask |= mydata[:,1] < N
> 	mask |= mydata[:,1] > S

is not working as aspected

have you hints on how to get working the "MASK" code ?
as it is now it pick all the points in the "mydata" array.

thanks!

Massimo.
