Underground Lidar

Underground Lidar

Underground lidar is a technology that allows for survey-grade sensing and mapping. It uses lasers to focus on objects and reflect back, measuring the distance by timing the return of the light. This allows the technique to be used as a remote sensing method. Lidar is...

Remote sensing of the environment

Remote sensing of the environment

What is remote sensing? Remote sensing involves using technology to explore the environment at a distance, gathering data about its composition and characteristics without actually making contact with the earth.  Whether it’s exploring distant planets or watching...
