What Is Lidar? Lidar Fundamentals
LiDAR 3D mapping is a versatile technology that unlike passive sensing methods such as photogrammetry can penetrate vegetation and operate in dark lighting situations. LiDAR is a more applicable, user-friendly technology providing data that is faster and easier to process.
What is LiDAR? Learn How LiDAR is Used
Mapping accurately through vegetation is challenging. And while photogrammetry can be used for bare earth mapping, it is not nearly as effective as LiDARLiDAR, or light detection and ranging, is a tool used to quickly, accurately and densely measure 3D features from the world around us. LiDAR is a form of “remote sensing” - meaning we aren’t physically measuring things with our hands, but rather, using sensors. for mapping through thick vegetation.
