Working with LiDAR Data


Value Addition Course Classroom Online

Duration: 40 hours

Course Overview

In India and Asian countries LiDAR technology is emerging and being employed extensively. LiDAR can be used for mapping urban areas, rapid surveys, building 3D city models, monitoring infrastructure projects, mining etc. Skilled map power on LiDAR data processing has huge demand in India. LiDAR skills can be employed or has job opportunities in building construction, infrastructure development, archology, heritage preservation, agriculture and may other sectors. LiDAR training will be useful for DJI Zenmuse L1 Surveying data processing.

This LiDAR training course on teaches the fundamentals concepts of LiDAR technologies along with hand on exercise on software tools. This includes Principles, Laser physics, Operation, Data formats, Modern trends, Applications, Error analysis, Data processing-concepts and issues, Information extraction, feature extraction, Integration with spectral data, 3D city model generation. Practical assignment covers data format conversion, visualisation, accuracies, point classification, error analysis, DEM generation, contour generation, feature extraction like building, powerline and trees, Integration of LiDAR.
