Basics of Lidar

The Wisconsin State Cartographers Office will be hosting a second offering of their “Basics of LiDAR” workshop. The workshop will extend over two full days, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, on June 12-13, 2017, at UW-Madison.

In this workshop, attendees will get hands-on experience manipulating LiDAR data using industry-standard Esri software. Attendees will gain a broad understanding of: raster data; map algebra and raster data processing; raster data structures; raster DEM characteristics including resolution; LiDAR acquisition and data collection concepts; accuracy and error in the context of LiDAR data; limitations of LiDAR; main LiDAR application domains; bare earth applications of LiDAR; terrain analysis; TINs, breaklines and contours; point clouds and LAS files; and visualization options. Attendees will also work with LAS files, using LASD to display data and create raster files and DEMs.

Registration is limited to 20.
