  • Executive SummaryAerial laser scanning is rapidly becoming the preferred surveying technique. Its high-resolution and rapid results, which are accurate enough for the most construction and mining applications, make aerial laser scanning (or LiDAR) the surveying technology of choice for a changing environment. Combined with geo-referenced high-resolution imagery, the spatial dataset becomes even more intuitive to decision makers and engineers alike.
