LIDAR: Just What Is It?


Steven M. Schorr, PE, Collision Reconstruction Engineer ::::
Did You Know that… LIDAR stands for Light Detection And Ranging.
It is defined as “A remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth. These light pulses—combined with other data recorded by the airborne system— generate precise, three-dimensional information about the shape of the Earth and its surface characteristics.”
LIDAR is the foundation of HDS Laser Scanning which provides engineers and others the opportunity to create accurate three-dimensional environments for use in analyses. Continue reading “LIDAR: Just What Is It?”
