Working with LiDAR Data

Duration : 40 hours

In Asian countries LiDAR technology is emerging and being employed extensively. LiDAR can be used for mapping urban areas, rapid surveys, building 3D city models, monitoring infrastructure projects, mining etc. Skilled map power is play vital role in projects implementation.
This training course on LiDAR teaches the fundamentals concepts of LiDAR technologies along with hand on exercise on software tools. This includes Principles, Laser physics, Operation, Data formats, Modern trends, Applications, Error analysis, Data processing-concepts and issues, Information extraction, feature extraction, Integration with spectral data, 3D city model generation. Practical assignment covers data format conversion, visualisation, accuracies and error analysis, DEM generation, contour generation, feature extraction like building, powerline and trees, Integration of LiDAR and aerial photograph.

After completing the module you will be able to:

  • DefineLiDAR
  • Select different types of elevation data for specific application
  • Describe how LiDAR data is collected
  • Identify important characteristics of LiDAR data
  • Distinguish between different LiDAR product
  • Recognize data quality that impact data usability
