A Closer Look at Geiger-Mode Lidar

About a year ago, we encountered our first Geiger-mode lidar files.  Geiger-mode lidar is a very high-density collection technology that has been in military use for more than a decade but is now making its way into commercial and civilian mapping applications.  The technique is cool and worth reading up on.  For us, the datasets exhibited a new level of point density and noise and seemed like a probable fit…

Somewhere There is a Place for Us: IIS for Institutional Spatial Information
