LIDAR (light detection and ranging) is being collected with amazing speed, accuracy, and precision. This class will examine opportunities to collect data using Leica static scanners, backpack scanners, and mobile mappers, and how to extract intelligence from these point clouds using InfraWorks software and ReCap software.
- Understand applications of LIDAR technology
- Learn how LIDAR data is used in ReCap and InfraWorks
- Learn about automated feature extraction from point clouds
- Learn how to share intelligence across multiple uses
