Philipp Glira studied geodesy at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien). Currently he is a PhD student in the photogrammetry research group within the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation at TU Wien, under the supervision of Prof Norbert Pfeifer. His research focuses on the orientation and calibration of images and point clouds. Within his PhD he developed a flexible and efficient strip adjustment method for aerial laser scanning point clouds.


UAS-borne Lidar for Mapping Complex Terrain and Vegetation Structure

The development of lightweight, survey-grade Lidar sensors has made it possible to equip unmanned aerial systems (UASs) with very precise laser scanners, thus opening up new possibilities in the domain of close-range 3D mapping. To test the capabilities of UAS-borne laser scanning, a flight experime... (read more)
