Overview of LiDAR; system variations, data interpretation & applications

This remote sensing online video course gives detailed and broad information about how LiDAR - which stands for Light Detection And Ranging -systems works, their usability and interpretation.

According to Wanger et al, LiDAR is a growing technology used in environmental research to collect information about the Earth, such as vegetation and tree species. 


Earth observation images, acquired from satellites, have been used for years in earth monitoring. In respect to forest monitoring, satellite imagery does not contain information about tree height, diameter at breast height and stem density amongst many other important parameters for monitoring forest health at tree level. In the last couple of decades, LiDAR data acquired from airborne platforms has been increasingly used for forest monitoring, urban planning, archaeology, biodiversity and automated driving. Using this technology, the commercial forestry sector managed a 40% reduction of the expensive fieldwork that cost them millions of dollars annually.

Instructor: Dr. Milto Miltiadou, Researcher at Laboratory of Remote Sensing and Geo-Enviromnent, Cyprus University of Technology
