LiDAR: What’s it all about?

By on 30 May, 2011

The NSW Maritime Panel is presenting an information session on LiDAR, hosted by Glenn Jones from Land and Property Information.

WHEN: 2011-06-20 to 2011-06-20
WHERE: Function Room, Ground Floor, 7 Thomas St, Chatswood

There is an increasing demand for high-accuracy elevation data for a variety of purposes such as climate change abatement, water management, forest management, disaster mitigation, infrastructure planning and management, city modelling, air safety, mining and local planning. The need is compelling, particularly for coastal hydrology.
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) has emerged as the clear ‘technology of choice’ for this generation of high-resolution elevation data. LiDAR can achieve vertical accuracies of 10-30cm, as well as survey the ground through all but thick vegetation.
This presentation will demonstrate the fundamentals of LiDAR technology and highlight what quality assurance measures are required to ensure that the derived elevation products are both fit-for-purpose and comply with specifications under the National Elevation Data Framework (NEDF).
The presenter:
Glenn Jones is a Senior Surveyor at the NSW Land & Property Information (LPI) and has 36 years experience with the practical applications of geodesy and GPS. Glenn currently heads up the team responsible for elevation data management at LPI, including the establishment of the Authority’s own airborne LiDAR capability.
The presentation is free, and no registration is required. All are welcome.
Food and drinks served at 5:30pm for a 6:00pm start.
