Developing Standards for Airborne LiDAR Data Acquisition

 

 
 

Airborne LiDAR is an industry standard technique to collect dense and accurate three dimensional data of terrain and the features on it. Being still a new technology, currently there are no standards available in India for acquisition and processing of LiDAR data. However, the coming decade is going to witness multifold increase in the use of LiDAR datasets in view of India's infrastructural growth, need of disaster management and other applications. This project aims to establish basic framework for standards for LiDAR data acquisition and processing. The deliverables of the project would be a set of technical specifications with potential to be adopted as national standards.
