Airborne and terrestrial laser scanning by George Vosselman, Hans-Gerd Maas

By George Vosselman, Hans-Gerd Maas

Written by way of a group of overseas specialists, this e-book offers a complete evaluation of the foremost purposes of airborne and terrestrial laser scanning. It specializes in rules and strategies and provides an built-in remedy of airborne and terrestrial laser scanning know-how. After attention of the expertise and processing tools, the publication turns to purposes, equivalent to engineering, forestry, cultural history, extraction of 3D development types, and cellular mapping. This ebook brings jointly a few of the aspects of the topic in a coherent textual content that might be correct for complicated scholars, teachers and practitioners.

Example text

Fast acquisition is supported by the fact that scanning can be done at any time, day and night. Canopy penetration: If the canopy is not too dense, part of the laser light beam may penetrate to the ground enabling production of an elevation model of the forest floor. High penetration rates are reached in the case of deciduous trees in winter time, when the leaves are off. Minimum amount of ground truth data: Terrestrial work is minimised because even for large flight blocks only few ground references are needed.

16a). There will be some intermediate echoes coming from branches at different heights and finally a last echo from the ground, if the tree is transparent enough. 15 Echo signals from different target situations (P: discrete return pulses; FW: waveforms). 16 Multiple echoes and full waveforms: (a) discrete pulses; (b) waveform; and (c) digitised waveform. 16(c) shows the waveform after digitisation. 5 will treat the analysis and use of waveform data in more detail. Typically, time-of-flight receivers can capture up to four echoes per pulse: first, second, third and last.

Scan angle, scan rate, flying height and laser pulse repetition frequency determine the maximum point distance in across- and along-track directions. indb 17 1/8/2010 8:27:19 PM 18 Airborne and Terrestrial Laser Scanning will be kept. In most applications a point density which is homogeneous across and along the track will be chosen, with some variations caused by the zigzag pattern, the non-linear motion of the mirror and the topography itself. In general, oscillating mirror systems operate from 100 m to 6000 m above ground.
