Going Beyond Where: A Discussion on LiDAR Platforms & Emerging Trends
Geospatial technologies continue to develop at nearly breakneck speeds. Each new technology brings its own unique approach to industry needs. LiDAR is not necessarily new, but it continues to grow in its capability. While LiDAR data historically has been deemed too cumbersome or unwieldy to manage, downstream users are now more capable than ever to leverage point cloud data.
This presentation is about choosing the right tool in the toolbox. LiDAR data comes in many shapes and sizes. How the data was collected can vastly help (or hinder) your specific project. We will learn about different LiDAR methods including terrestrial, mobile, and aerial LiDAR – including UAS (drones)! We will explore how they’re related, what makes them different, and how to determine which is best for your project.
