This one-day course will provide faculty, students, and professionals with an introduction to Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS—aka 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.

Limited funding is available for student participation. Information on student funding and to apply for support
