Terrestrial Laser Scanning (Ground based LiDAR) Methods and Applications in Geologic Research & Education

October 30, 2010, 8am-5pm
Geolocial Society of America 2010 Annual Meeting, Denver, CO

This workshop will provide faculty, students, and professionals with the basic principles of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), aka ground-based LiDAR, workflows and best practices for the acquisition and processing of TLS data, an overview of various TLS platforms, and examples of science and education applications. This one-day workshop will consist of lectures and hands-on application of TLS equipment and data processing. TLS provides very high-resolution images over relatively small areas, is relatively inexpensive to acquire, and has been used successfully to support a wide range of geoscience investigations from outcrop mapping to deformation monitoring. Limited financial support is available for students. For more information and to register, visit the GSA 2010 Short Course Website.
