Topographic terrestrial and airborne lasers canning have become one of the most important geospatial data acquisition technologies. The laser scanning systems can collect accurate 3D data in large volumes at short time. Although the laser was invented in early 1960’s, its use in for the mapping purposes was delayed several decades due to the lack of various supporting technologies. The present widespread use of laser scanning systems for topographic applications really began in mid 1990’s.

This course gives you theoretical background about the data acquisition and processing procedures for terrestrial and airborne laser scanning, as well as practical experience with terrestrial laser scanning.
