Lidar Remote Sensing : Mapping British Columbia ’ s Forests with Lasers

Abstract

The most common type of lidar sensors operating within British Columbia are small-footprint, discrete return systems that record two to five returns for each emitted laser pulse. The distance between the lidar sensor and a target is estimated by multiplying the speed of light by half the amount of elapsed time between pulse emission and return detection. As… (More)
