2014 Structural Geology and Tectonics Forum TLS Short Course

2014 TLS Parameters, Workflows and Field Methods (Okal)Structural Geology and Tectonics Forum Short Course:
Introduction to terrestrial laser scanning (ground-based LiDAR) for Earth science research

Location & Date:
UNAVCO Facility, Boulder, CO, June 20, 2014

Workshop description: This one-day course will provide faculty, students and professionals with an introduction to Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS - a.k.a., ground-based lidar). TLS provides high-resolution three-dimensional images of geologic features, and has emerged as a powerful tool for applications ranging from outcrop mapping to analysis of earth surface processes. The course will focus on TLS technology, data collection, processing and analysis, and examples of science applications. A combination of lectures and hands-on demonstrations of TLS equipment and data processing will be used.
