Extracting Information from LiDAR Data
LiDAR data contains boundless information on terrain and 3D features. Knowing how to effectively work with LiDAR so that you can quickly get the information you need from it is vital to getting the most out of your investment. In this one day class, which takes place the day after ILMF, you will learn how you can use the LiDAR tools in ENVI to extract 3D features and elevation-based products quickly and easily. ENVI supports the most common LiDAR formats such as LAS, Binary, ASCII, and NITF LiDAR. With ENVI you can generate elevation products such as Digital Surface Models (DSMs), Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), and digital elevation contours. ENVI also automatically extracts 3D features from LiDAR point clouds such as buildings, trees, power lines, and power poles.
