Compressing Lidar Waveform Data

  title={Compressing Lidar Waveform Data},
  author={Sandor Laky and Piroska Zaletnyik and Charles Toth},
Most commercial LiDAR systems temporarily record the entire laser pulse echo signal as a function of time to extract the return pulses at data acquisition level in real-time; typically up to 4-5 returns. Thus, adding sufficient data storage capabilities, the waveform data can be easily made available to users, providing the possibility of further analyzing the waveform and, thus, obtaining additional information about the reflecting object and its geometric and physical characteristics. However… CONTINUE READING
