LiDAR is an emerging optical remote sensing technology that uses pulses of light to determine an object’s range and other pertinent information. Most commonly, LiDAR is used to generate terrain products including surface models and elevation contours. LiDAR data is also being used to generate accurate 3D visualizations, which can be used for a variety of planning, engineering and construction activities.

Topics include:

  • Quality Control Concepts
  • USGS v13 LiDAR Specification
  • Visual QC Approaches
  • Quantitative QC Approaches
