Lidar’s Next Geospatial Frontier

The State of Lidar for UAS Applications
Over the past two decades, airborne Lidar has evolved from a developmental technology into a well-established mapping solution, and in the process has revolutionised the surveying and mapping industry. Today, unmanned aerial systems (UASs) represent the next geospatial frontier. With recent advancements in sensor technology, the adoption of Lidar for UASs is rapidly expanding, leading to new industry horizons. Read on for insights into the current state of UAS-based Lidar technology and emerging trends. (By Michael Starek and Jinha Jung, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, USA) Integration of traditional airborne Lidar mapping technology with UASs has been challenging due to the... (read more)
