Uses of LiDAR in GIS or “Where do Contours Come from Daddy?”
While the use of LiDAR based derivative products is an everyday occurrence in Geospatial Technologies, the process of generating those derivatives from the raw data collected by LiDAR sensor is somewhat mysterious to those of us involved in more traditional GIS roles. We will look at a LiDAR dataset and the various derivatives that can be derived from them.
We will discuss standards for LiDAR acquisition and the extent of LiDAR data for the state.
Ernie Smith is the GIS Coordinator for Newton County. He also serves as Chairman of the GISCC.
