A Detailed Evaluation of Uncrewed UAS Lidar

Uncrewed aircraft systems (UASs) with integrated light detection and ranging (lidar) technology are becoming an increasingly popular and efficient remote sensing method for mapping. Due to its quick deployment and comparatively inexpensive cost, uncrewed laser scanning (ULS) can be a … Continue reading

Interactive Visualization of 3D Coordinate Uncertainties

In speaking with Mike Olsen at OSU he remembered this paper on interactive visualization of point cloud data that he and YGP Matt O’Banion had published. It looks like a very important paper on 3D point cloud data accuracy. Abstract … Continue reading

Multi-scan Segmentation of Terrestrial Laser Scanning Data

The process of point cloud segmentation groups points with similar attributes such as geometric, colormetric, radiometric, and/or other information to support Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) data processing such as feature extraction, classification, modeling, analysis, and more. From the Abstract by … Continue reading
