Applications of Lidar Remote sensing

Image source: remote-sensing-biodiversity.org Lidar remote sensing technology uses light pulses to detect an object’s distance. It uses light pulses to measure the distance by illuminating a target with a laser beam and analyze the reflected light. Remote sensing and Lidar systems (Light detection and ranging) provide invaluable data used in different geoscience applications. The technology …

Differences between the Lidar Systems and Depth Camera

Image source: extremetech.com Lidar systems and depth cameras have become part of today’s depth-sensors in the digital market. The sensors supplement the current monocular RGB images by providing per-pixel depth information of the target objects. The depth- sensors accurately measure the distance and wavelength of a target object and return a 3D representation. Although the …

Application of LiDAR in Civil Engineering

LiDAR technology, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, uses light to map virtually any kind of physical environment. Extremely accurate images can be rendered due to LiDAR technology’s use of very precise laser beams. It is a Remote Sensing technique, using either ground-based (Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS)) or airborne systems (Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS)), …
