If you work in a public or private organization, you probably need to use the most accurate terrain information for your decision-making. To fulfill this requirement, your organization often relies on Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) to create large-scale mapping applications.
Nowadays, multifarious industries use LiDAR in response to the growing need for capturing geospatial information rapidly, cost effectively and accurately.
Some of the application areas (non-exhaustive) where LiDAR is being used today are:
- Studying environmental changes from the LiDAR data
- Improving town planning by utilizing aerial imagery
- Quantifying and managing disturbance and rehabilitation in mining companies
- Assessing damage caused by natural disasters and planning future mitigation strategies
