    Dr. Steven Pawley describes the ways that LiDAR has helped some of the challenges previously encountered in data collection for the surficial geology mapping program. Much of the north has been mapped already, with more planned through 2015. LiDAR is able to provide a lot of detail that isn't always detected using other methods. Dr. Steven Pawley is Quaternary Geologist with the Alberta Geological Survey and the Alberta Energy Regulator.

    Engineering geologist, Pete Hobbs, explains how the British Geological Survey landslides team use Terrestrial Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR). LiDAR is a land-based laser scanner which, combined with a highly accurate differential GPS and camera, enables us to produce 3D computer models of landslides in coastal areas.

  • LIDAR: Airborn Light Detection and Ranging

    Airborne LIDAR is an optical remote sensing tool that uses laser pulses to measure the precise distance to the ground. The airplane-mounted laser range-finding system, transmits and receives data, which are precisely located using a highly sensitive GPS receiver. Computer-generated images reveal hidden faults not seen through the vegetation. This example uses U.S. Geological Survey lidar images taken near Lake Tahoe and reveals a previously unknown fault cross cutting moraines. Animation by Jenda Johnson, Earth Sciences Animated Lidar Images from U.S. Geological Survey.
