Description: This video, LiDAR: An End User's Perspective, is a presentation provided at the New York City LiDAR workshop on August 2, 2010 (see also, LiDAR 101). In this presentation I share some advice based on the experience my colleagues and I in the Spatial Analysis Lab have gained over the last six years working with LiDAR data. Certainly not all encompassing, but I do hope that it provides some useful information. The LiDAR point cloud visualizations, surface models, along with the various LiDAR-based analyses were performed using Quick Terrain (QT) Modeler. At the end I demonstrate a workflow for automatically mapping land cover by fusing imagery, LiDAR products from QT Modeler, and vector datasets using eCognition.
