  • While we tackle about Lidar Technology in our school, I decided to search on net and Thank you for posting this video. It really help me for my project. Do you have more videos?

  • Thank you for posting this video. I badly need info about Lidar because it's my project for this semester. Thank you again guys.

  • I can say that Lidar breaks the word Impossible in the dictionary. A lidar can do the task even if it is night or day and what made me smile is the fact that it really gives me satisfaction on the idea that this kind of technology will soon rise. I used to watch matrix and I can say that Neo has a Lidar eyes.

  • What we are saying here is state by the Nation Research Council of the National Academies
  • How is this controlled
  • ‘ LiDARgrammetry’ which is a technique for creating two intensity images from one for the purpose of stereo exploitation.  The end result in this case would be the breaklines compiled from the stereo pair.
  • The industry is driving the point spacing Density dependent on Repetition rate is how many times the laser pulses per second Scan angle = field of view
  • What is LAS? Binary file format, contains all data acquired by the sense, this file is compressed, requires specialized knowledge What is ASCII? Text file format (comma delimited, space delimited) What is a TIFF? Can be viewed with any picture viewer software. Discuss 2D and 3D breaklines i.e. stereo intensity pairs

    1. 1. LiDAR Aiding Decision-Making Process September 16 th , 2009 GIS in The Rockies Presented by: Jamie Young General Manager – LiDAR services
    2. 2. LiDAR Decisions National Research Council of the National Academies <ul><li>“ LiDAR produces very-high-resolution three-dimensional point clouds in a wide variety of land cover types at accuracies equivalent to or better than photogrammetry…” </li></ul><ul><li>“ LiDAR can be acquired day or night, in cloudy conditions, leaf on or leaf off and no sun angle limitation…” </li></ul><ul><li>“ LiDAR is able to penetrate to the bare earth in vegetated area better than either IFSAR or photogrammetry…” </li></ul><ul><li>“ LiDAR data processing and feature extraction can be incorporated seamlessly into the production environment designed for photogrammetry…” </li></ul>Hydro-electric dam, Puerto Rico
    3. 3. LiDAR Accuracy Standards What should you know? <ul><li>Horizontal : the positional accuracy of a dataset with respect to a horizontal reference. </li></ul><ul><li>Vertical : the vertical accuracy of a dataset with respect to a horizontal reference. </li></ul><ul><li>Positional : the position of features, including horizontal and/or vertical position. </li></ul><ul><li>Relative : value in feet or meters that reports the uncertainty in vertical or horizontal position due to random errors in measurements in a location relative to any other point. </li></ul><ul><li>Absolute : value in feet or meters that reports uncertainty in vertical or horizontal positions due to systematic & random errors in measurements of the location of any point on a geospatial dataset relative to the defined vertical or horizontal datum at a state confidence level. a location relative to any other point. </li></ul>
