Introduction to Terrestrial Laser Scanning (Ground-based LiDAR) for Earth Science Research

June 20, 2014
UNAVCO, 6350 Nautilus Drive, Boulder, Colorado

Limited to 20 participants

This course is being taught in conjunction with the 3rd Structural Geology and Tectonics Forum, an On the Cutting Edge - Professional Development for Geoscience Faculty event.

This one-day course will provide faculty, students and professionals with an introduction to Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS - a.k.a., ground-based lidar). TLS provides high-resolution three-dimensional images of geologic features, and has emerged as a powerful tool for applications ranging from outcrop mapping to analysis of earth surface processes. The course will focus on TLS technology, data collection, processing and analysis, and examples of science applications. A combination of lectures and hands-on demonstrations of TLS equipment and data processing will be used.
