Back to School - LiDAR 101


LiDAR is a technology used to collect point cloud data and creates an extremely accurate depiction of features. LiDAR is primarily used for survey quality mapping. There are five types of LiDAR and our class will focus on four; airborne, mobile, bathymetric and UAV. The class will include information about how the data is collected, how accuracy is maintained, what products can be delivered and will provide examples of how LiDAR is being used.

Join us for an exciting day – lunch and candy will be provided!

Four sessions with everything you wanted to know about LiDAR:
