Custom LiDAR Analysis: Using the ENVI LiDAR API for IDL

Custom LiDAR Analysis: Using the ENVI LiDAR API for IDL

In this webinar, we’ll take a look at the ENVI LiDAR user interface to become familiar with out-of-the box functionality. We will also review custom extensions for ENVI LiDAR, developed in IDL. A big advantage of ENVI LiDAR is its extensibility with IDL, opening a world of potential for custom LiDAR analytics. We will cover the following topics: Build an ...

Advanced True Orthophoto from Photogrammetry and LiDAR Integration

Advanced True Orthophoto from Photogrammetry and LiDAR Integration

This flythrough over The University of Calgary shows the successfull integration between LiDAR data and high resolution true-orthorectified aerial photographs. This is part of a PhD research that involves integration of LiDAR, Photogrammetry, and GIS for improved realistic 3D visualization. Well there is a number of sw used from point to point. The Building DBM modelling was semi-automated using an extension ...

Visualisation of Vegetation GIS Mapping using LiDAR

Visualisation of Vegetation GIS Mapping using LiDAR

Building up from a LiDAR point cloud, an digital elevation model is built from ground points which enables generation of watercourses and contours. Non-Ground laser strikes are then visualised for a highly forested environment in which a number of significant tall trees are located. Those trees exceeding 60 metres in height are then identified by a bright red colour, and ...
