Recommended Flight Planning and Data Deliverables for a LIDAR Project
Published On: May 26, 2007
This technical note provides recommended flight planning procedures and suggestions for contractual data deliverables for organizations that are subcontracting field data collection for a LIDAR project to a service provider. It is intended to provide a common basis for project planning when working with subcontractors, as well as recommendations for setting-up calibration flights for those organizations that may need/want to also verify sensor calibration and measure geometric data corrections using a tool such as Terrasolid's TerraMatch. These recommendations are not intended to supersede a subcontractor's established procedures, rather to provide an educated basis for discussion.
