Laser Scanning

Terrestrial and airborne laser (LiDAR) scanners for the collection of 3D point cloud data; software for processing and visualising point clouds and creating 3D models, and use cases for laser scanning

This topic covers the science, the hardware, and the software used to capture, process and apply 3D point cloud data. As well as airborne and terrestrial (tripod-based, vehicle-mounted and handheld) laser (LiDAR) scanners, the topic includes the proprietary and Open Source software employed to process point clouds and create 3D models. It also covers the many and varied uses for 3D laser scanning: topographic mapping, bathymetric mapping, utility mapping, engineering surveying, agriculture, forestry, geology, architecture, industrial facilities, cultural heritage, asset management and construction, collision avoidance in autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles, and environmental modelling
