This issue is focused on laser scanning, both airborne and terrestrial. The first commercial airborne Lidar systems appeared on the market in the mid-1990s. Since then this active remote-sensing technology has evolved rapidly. An article on this subject from page 12 onwards provides an overview of the main technological advances of today’s operational systems. (Image courtesy: Nova Scotia Community College).
