GSA 2019 Short Course: 501. High Resolution Topography and 3D Imaging I: Introduction to Terrestrial Laser Scanning

Geological Society of America Annual Meeting Short Course, Phoenix, AZ

501. High Resolution Topography and 3D Imaging I: Introduction to Terrestrial Laser Scanning

Fri., 20 Sept., 8 a.m.–5 p.m 

Room 103AB, West Building, Phoenix Convention Center

Instructors: Christopher Crosby & Keith Williams, UNAVCO

Abstract: This one-day course will provide faculty, students, and professionals with an introduction to terrestrial laser scanning (TLS a.k.a., ground-based lidar) for research and education. TLS provides high-resolution three-dimensional images of geologic features and is 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 and educational applications. A combination of lectures and hands-on demonstrations of TLS equipment and data processing will be used.
