Do you want to learn how to use Backpack lidar for surveying? If so, you have come to the right place! In this blog post, we will provide a comprehensive overview of backpack lidar surveys and how to conduct them. We will also provide training on how to use wearable mapping lidar systems for your surveys. So, whether you are a beginner or an experienced surveyor, this blog post has something for you!
Backpack lidar surveys are a type of surveying that uses light detection and ranging (LIDAR) technology. LIDAR is an active remote sensing technique that uses laser pulses to measure distance. Backpack lidar surveys are conducted with a backpack-mounted LIDAR system, which consists of a laser, scanner, GPS, and computer.
The first step in conducting a Backpack lidar survey is to establish control points. Control points are locations on the ground that have been surveyed with high precision using traditional surveying techniques. These control points provide a known starting point from which the Backpack lidar survey can be conducted.
Next, the team will establish transects, or lines, that will be surveyed with the Backpack lidar system. The Backpack lidar system will be set up at the beginning of each transect and then moved along the transect in a straight line. As the backpack lidar system is moved, it will collect data points at regular intervals.
Once the data has been collected, it will be processed to create a point cloud. A point cloud is a three-dimensional representation of the ground surface that contains information about the elevation of the ground. The point cloud can then be used to create a digital elevation model (DEM), which is a three-dimensional representation of the ground surface that can be used for various purposes, such as mapping and analysis.
