New Approach to Autoextraction and Attribution of Airport Obstructions from LIDAR Data


Recent research efforts have proved that airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) topographic data for mapping of obstructions offers a significant time and cost improvement compared with traditional field topographic and aerial photogrammetric surveys. Aerial and satellite stereo imageries are other technologies that enhance safety and expedite obstruction surveys. This session will focus on the state-of-the-art LIDAR obstruction survey and related visualization technologies.
