LIDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, it is a remote sensing technology that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure variable distances to the Earth. LIDAR is an acronym for LIght Detection And Ranging.It is an active remote sensing technology. As a non-image nadir-looking active sensor, laser sensor obtain digital topographic data of high accuracy by measuring the round-trip time of laser pulses reflected from the Earth’s surface. Active airborne sensor emits several thousand infrared laser pulses per second. If location and orientation of laser scanner is known, can calculate a range measurement for each recorded echo from a laser pulse.
