LIDAR Data Basics
Learn and understand the fundamentals of LIDAR technology: 'How is a point cloud collected?', 'How can LIDAR points be meshed with traditional shots?', and 'How do you measure the accuracy of aerial LIDAR?'
Mission Planning & In Field Data Processing
Plan a mission in the office and then head to the field with your class to deploy the SmartDrone Discovery, and collect your own LIDAR data. Use SmartDrone's software suite to easily generate one-foot contours from the data you just collected. Your data will be stored on a USB stick to take back to your team at the office.
Take a short tour through our headquarters in Tyler, Texas where we manufacture the SmartDrone Discovery.
