Lidar Activities and Research Priorities in the Commercial Sector

  title={Lidar Activities and Research Priorities in the Commercial Sector},
  author={Martin Flood},
Laser altimetry, more commonly referred to in the commercial sector as LiDAR mapping, is becoming a commonplace operational tool in photogrammetry, survey and mapping firms. Its use has grown rapidly over the past five years due to the increasing availability of commercial off-the-shelf sensors, advancements in the design and capabilities of the sensors themselves and an increased awareness of the advantages of using LiDAR technology for elevation data capture by end users. As a result LiDAR… CONTINUE READING
