Separating ground from nonground laser returns from airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data is a key step in creating digital terrain models (DTMs). In this letter, bare-earth and forested surfaces are classified from LiDAR intensity data in a data set from central Idaho, U.S. Next, a Gaussian fitting (GF) method is applied to determine ground… CONTINUE READING
