Open Source ALS and MLS Processing Tools Short Course | 2016 UNAVCO Science Workshop


2016 UNAVCO Science Workshop - Open Source ALS and MLS Processing Tools Short Course


****COURSE IS CLOSED****
Open Source ALS and MLS Processing Tools Short Course - Wednesday, March 30, 2016 from 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Instructors: Craig Glennie, Peter Gadomski (UH), and Howard Butler (Hobu)

Current airborne and mobile laser scanning (ALS and MLS) systems require the user to purchase complete systems and software from the hardware vendors. However, there are a growing number of low-cost and multi-use laser scanners, that when coupled with navigation systems, can be used as low cost ALS or MLS acquisition platforms. To enable the development of low-cost 'do-it-yourself' mobile LiDAR acquisitions we have developed a framework of open source software tools to enable processing of the raw LiDAR observations to a point cloud, and to facilitate further analysis of the raw point cloud through the tools available in the open source point cloud library (PCL).

This workshop will introduce these open source tools, and provide a detailed overview of the open source workflow to process raw LiDAR observations and perform advanced analysis without the requirements for high-cost hardware specific software packages.

If you are interested, please sign up on the registration page and you will be contacted in mid-February with more details.
