Airborne LiDAR


The Earth Observatory of Singapore has developed its capability of aerial acquisition of LiDAR data (Airborne-LiDAR). The Centre for Geoohazard Observations has carried out airborne-LiDAR surveys in Nepal and Myanmar. Compared to the Ground-LiDAR, the Airborne-LiDAR is suitable for large-area/regional high-resolution surveys. This technique provides real topography through ultra-high resolution, vegetation-free images of an area as large as several square kilometres.
