AGRG LiDAR summer institute

06/29/2009
07/02/2009

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.
