ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

I owe a great many thanks to a great many people who helped and supported me during the writing of this Report. My deepest thanks to Mrs. JayeetaBiswas, the Guide of the project for guiding and correcting various documents of mine with attention and care. She has taken pain to go through the project and make necessary correction as and when needed.

I express my thanks to the HOD-Electronics &CommunicationDr. V. K. Pandeyof Noida Institute of Engg. & Technology for extending his support. I would also thank my Institution, my faculty members and also my friends RAVI SHANKAR,SHIVESH SINGH, PRASHANT YADAV without whom this project would have been a distant reality. I also extend my heartfelt thanks to my family and well wishers. Thank you Almighty God for my senses of touch,taste,smell,sight, and hearing, and for teaching me how to best put them to good use, in appreciation of all of your provisions.

ASBTRACT

This white paper on LiDAR mapping provides the reader with an introduction to a maturing technology used to acquire land based Digital Elevation Models (DEM), and an existing mature technology used to acquire marine (undersea) DEMs. Common to both the land-based and marine-based systems is the use of lasers, integrated into what are known as LIghtDetectionAndRanging systems, or LiDAR. The paper begins with an introduction to LiDAR, and follows-through with how the systems are used, a description of land and marine variants, and statements as to what accuracy is attainable. Data products driven by applications are outlined, and the ability of these products to be integrated into a GIS is addressed. In turn and integral to the theme of the paper, evidence is presented to support applications developments that will ultimately benefit the public at large.

Where valid, comparisons of LiDAR to other mapping technologies are presented to give the reader an understanding of current traditional practices. In many cases the combination of LiDAR with other technology creates a result that is unachievable with a single methodology. Finally, conclusions are presented for discussion purposes that draw on the experiences of LiDAR practitioners and clients, as well as those of Terrapoint.

INTRODUCTION

LiDAR, an acronym for Light Detection and Ranging, is a term that has been around, discussed, and researched since the early 1950’s. It was not until the development of accurate positioning systems that LiDAR became to be considered as a viable...
