The Balloon and LIDAR

From the Open Topography website they reported that at last month’s UNAVCO Science Workshop there were an evening of Ignite talks presented by members of the UNAVCO community.
Chris Crosby noted that, “Of particular interest to the LIDAR community is Ben Brook’s (UH Manoa) talk, ”The Balloon and Lidar” about his work with Craig Glennie (University of Houston) to build a balloon (or backpack) based lidar system. The system has the potential to bridge the gap between terrestrial and airborne lidar, providing detailed scans of features such as fault scarps and landslides from the air.”
