Generating LIDAR Stereo Models in GeoCue

Published On: May 30, 2014


LIDARgrammetry is a term coined by GeoCue for using the intensity information as the source data for generating stereo models of the project area directly from the LIDAR data itself rather than from ancillary imagery. By creating appropriate stereo pairs from the LIDAR intensity images, it is possible to generate stereo models that can be directly exploited using existing photogrammetric workstations and the traditional photogrammetric workflow in areas such as feature extraction or breakline compilation. Using the LIDAR intensity data to generate stereo models allows data providers to improve the overall efficiency of their LIDAR data processing while also allowing established mapping firms to continue to exploit their existing infrastructure when working with LIDAR data sets.
