Incorporating Vertical Control for Airborne Tie Line Calibration

When using Tie Lines for calibrating, or assessing, your airborne LIDAR projects it is often desirable, and in fact recommended to incorporate vertical control into the process. On the other hand, vertical check points are used in conjunction with the Output Control Report tool for reporting project accuracy. The incorporation of vertical control, or known…

LIDAR Quality Levels – Part 1

The LIDAR community has been gradually adopting the terminology “Quality Level” to categorize airborne LIDAR data. The idea is to use a simple scheme to characterize the more important features of a LIDAR data set into a few broad groups designated QLn where n is the quality level. LIDAR Quality Levels – Part 1
