There are many issues when users try to use and integrate data from a point cloud archive in support of large scale assessments.
Special Panel Session - Lidar Calibration, Validation, and Interoperability (Sponsored by the ASPRS Photogrammetric Applications and Primary Data Acquisition Divisions) Moderator: Greg Stensaas, USGS, [email protected]
and Charles Toth, The Ohio State University, [email protected]
KEY WORDS: Camera, Calibration, Interoperability, LiDAR, Manufacturers, Procedures, Sensors, Validation
This session is designed to provide an overview discussion of the strong requirement for LiDAR calibration and validation to ensure accuracy and interoperability of data collected from multiple systems. There are many issues when users try to use and integrate data from a point cloud archive in support of large scale assessments. These issues involve improperly documented cal/val data and associated common practices. This session will provide short presentations by the speakers with a panel discussion session during the last 30 minutes.
Speakers: LiDAR Calibration and Validation Software and Processes - Dr. Ayman Hibib, University of Calgary
Commerical Aerial LiDAR Provider Cal/Val Processes - Paul Harwig, Fugro Horizons, Inc.
LiDAR Data Interoperability Issues - Karl Heidemann, USGS
Calibration, Validation, and Interoperability from a manufactures perspective - R. Valerie Ussyshkin, Optec, Inc.
