Geiger-Mode LIDAR Workflow Review

Author: GeoCue, August 13, 2016


Geiger-mode LIDAR data is getting a lot of press lately as the “next big thing” in airborne data collection.  Unlike traditional LIDAR sensors, which we will call “linear-mode LIDAR” for convenience, Geiger-mode sensors use a different detection method in the receiver – the “Geiger-Mode” part – to enable much higher data collection altitudes and higher resolutions than traditional sensors.  Harris Corporation has been providing Geiger-mode LIDAR data to various US government agencies to validate the accuracy and cost-effectiveness of this technique for mapping applications. With the growing availability of Geiger-mode data sets, we decided we wanted to look at the data in the context of software tools and workflows.
