Small-footprint airborne lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) topographic mapping is widely used in the commercial and research sectors for applications including shoreline monitoring, forestry, flood zone delineation, and urban mapping. A new module developed by Optech, Inc. to digitally record the entire returned lidar pulse has been integrated into, and runs simultaneously with, a conventional small-footprint lidar system operated by the University of Texas [1]. Small-footprint airborne… CONTINUE READING
