This is a media curation page for the PIRatE Lab's AARR Program.  We are developing practical, low cost programs to monitor resources in our coastal zone (the land near the ocean and the ocean near the land) with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs aka "drones") overhead and subtidal Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) .  Enjoy!!

What is LiDAR
Light Detection And Ranging works by sending laser pulses into many, accurately defined directions in fast succession. Measuring the time it takes for each laser-pulse to be reflected and returned to the LiDAR-scanner allows reconstruction of all surfaces surrounding the scanner. Dynamic LiDAR mapping further requires fusing the returned pulse with the accurate world-position of the scanner at that time, so that returned points can also be recorded in a world coordinate system.

How a “Wild Idea” About LiDAR Transformed the Aerial Mapping Industry - sUAS News - The Business of Drones

How a “Wild Idea” About LiDAR Transformed the Aerial Mapping Industry - sUAS News - The Business of Drones | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
“I first approached Velodyne LiDAR in 2012 with the wild idea of putting a LiDAR sensor on a drone,” says Grayson Omans, CEO and co-founder of Phoenix LiDAR. “Back then, these LiDAR sensors were pretty expensive, so it was a novel idea. I had high hopes for the result, but I never imagined that we’d …

PIRatE Labs insight:

This is simply a cost thing: can we get cheap enough LiDAR instruments to collect data in volumes to make "true" 3D maps with the pixel density needed to render all the small-scale features.
