Evaluating Point Clouds - LiDAR, LADAR, and UAV's
Track: Research & Sciences
Authors: William Shuart, John Anderson
Point clouds collected from various systems including traditional laser terrestrial and airborne scanners and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s) and new laser radar systems provide many useful products in geographic information systems including digital surface models and digital elevation models. The goal of this project is to compare and contrast these methods and provide insight into the use of point clouds created from UAV systems and accuracy of those data.
