AAMS has significant experience in LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) acquisition with data collected throughout many years. The
growing awareness of the results that can be achieved has justified the recent purchase of Leica ALS70 airborne Lidar sensor.
LiDAR, also known as airborne laser scanning (ALS), is a cost-effective alternative to conventional ground surveying for medium to large scale terrain modelling projects and accuracies achievable are far superior to photogrammetric mapping. Dense sets of discrete elevation points are captured that represent a sampling of the surface.
Light is transmitted out to the target which is reflected back to the instrument where it is analyzed. The change in the intensity of the light enables some properties of the target to be determined. The time for the light to travel out to the target and back to the LiDAR is used to
determine the range to the target.
