AGRG LiDAR summer institute


AGRG will be hosting a lidar summer training institute during the week of June 29th to July 2nd. The objective of this workshop is to get to grips with the complete airborne lidar operational workflow from mission planning to data integration. It is a condensed and more ‘hands on’ version of the lidar curriculum that we teach at the Centre of Geographic Sciences. We will have both private and academic sector attendees, and we aim to balance the need for theoretical and application-based background with hands on instruction on the installation/operation of equipment and post processing of collected data. The specific elements of the week’s workshop activities will be tailored to the needs of the workshop attendees. Weather dependent, we will actually fly a data collection during the workshop using our Optech ALTM 3100 and contracted Piper Navajo belonging to Scotia Flight Centre so that participants can see a real project in action.

We have space for up to 20 participants. Once seats are filled we will not be accepting any more. Hence, there is no deadline for registration but it will be first come first served. Anyone interested, please let us know which areas of the lidar workflow are of most interest to you and we will try to meet your needs. Please forward this to anyone you feel might be interested.

Email or call me if you have any questions or if you wish to give a short presentation on relevant materials that will be of interest to the group.

Updated information on the lidar summer institute will be posted on our web site periodically:
