Segmenting Point Clouds

A team of researchers from Oregon State University have developed a promising new approach to segmenting point clouds. New technologies such as lidar enable the rapid collection of massive datasets to model a 3D scene as a point cloud. However, … Continue reading

Li-FI

As Dr. Michael Olsen at OSU notes this is not directly about lidar, but it is about the use of light to replace radio waves to transmit the Internet at blinding speed. By blinding I mean 100 times faster than … Continue reading

Radiometric Processing of Lidar Data

Unfortunately we don’t have an accepted standard for lidar intensity. It can be loosely defined as the strength of the backscattered echo for each measured point, with the operative word being loosely. A group of researchers at Oregon State University … Continue reading

Rock Fall Point Clouds

Using terrestrial laser scanning to better understand and monitor rock face stability can be a challenging use of the technology given the irregular nature of the surfaces, issues with angle of incidence and the dynamic nature of the material. Michael … Continue reading

Faculty Openings at OSU

Oregon State University has two geospatial faculty positions opening. (not in civil engineering but in their coastal college). One is permanent and one is temporary. Assistant Professor, Cartography and Geovisual Analytics – a colleague firmly grounded in geography to conduct research, … Continue reading
