8am – 5pm, (GSA course 525)
Charlotte, NC
US$36, includes lunch. Limited financial support is available for students; see the link below to apply.
Limit: 20. CEU: 0.8.
Cosponsor: UNAVCO

Course materials and presentations

Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), a.k.a. 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 1-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.
