Airborne LiDAR Point Density, More to the Point
How is airborne LiDAR point density measured? How is it reported? What constitutes point density acceptance? The varied answers may surprise you. LiDAR providers, data QC entities, and end users go about this many different ways. It is eye opening to learn how open ended this topic is and how data density can be masked to look good but actually be compromised and vice versa. So what method is best? Maybe the answer depends on the application. This presentation will address these topics and uncover how a simple concept can be much more complicated than one would ever think. A better understanding of LiDAR point density is needed so that everyone involved can have clear measurement and reporting expectations at the beginning of projects.
