What is LiDAR?

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging or Laser Imaging Detection and Ranging) is an optical remote sensing technology capable of measuring the distance to and properties of targets by illuminating them with laser light and analyzing the backscattered light.

LiDAR uses a rapidly pulsed laser rangefinder mounted in light aircraft or ground based vehicle, along with differential GPS and INS (Inertial Navigation System) to locate and orient the vehicle. 10 – 30 thousand XYZ points are surveyed per second with a spatial precision of a few decimeters.

Types of LiDAR:
• Airborne LiDAR scan
• Mobile LiDAR scan
• Static LiDAR scan
