Agenda

Session Title: Topobathymetric Lidar Solutions

Presented by: Colin Cooper, Technical Domain Expert, Quantum Spatial

Session Synopsis: Airborne Topobathymetric Lidar has matured to become an indispensable technology used by a diverse community of earth scientists, hydrologists, surveyors, engineers and other professionals to define subsurface topography in both near shore and riverine environments in striking detail and accuracy. Federal Government agencies including USGS, NOAA and USACE were quick to embrace the use of topobathy lidar to support their mission requirements and have identified it as a key technology that will support the realization of a 3D National Terrain. The presentation will provide a brief overview of the technology, its operational parameters and constraints, data characteristics, applications and use cases.
