LiDAR Bathy On Site

I have a trip planned this week to observe and report on the folks at H2H (based in Troy, New York) usingĀ  a boat equipped with LiDAR and a side scan sonar. They have a contract to document the conditions of a series of locks connecting the Hudson River with Lake Champlain. Seems like one of those projects where I can’t imagine how they did it before these technologies were available.

Thanks to Mark Farber from H2H for the invite. Let me know if you have any questions about this data fusion effort and I will try to get the answers.

P.S. I also made a contact last week with a person, Meg Waters that is integrating ground penetrating radar and laser scanning – above and below ground 3D. More on this to follow. These are fertile areas for important innovation.

    There have been a number of different comments on this subject posted on the LinkedIn ASPRS, Laser Scanning and possibly even other groups, hopefully this post will filter it’s way there also.

    This subject really is not new and I felt it valuable to point to some of the first published work on combined lidar and multibeam bathymetric data collection exercises going back as far as 2008;

    Indeed the novelty of this application has been well studied, documented and applied for a number of years.

    Here is an example of this application from POB Magazine dating back to 2007:

    and another from 2008:
