Airborne Laser Scanning with UAVs - Understanding The Key Factors to Generate Highest Grade LIDAR Point Clouds

In this white paper, Aeroscout presents the key factors to generate highest grade LIDAR point clouds recorded by an UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). Some typical mission scenarios are given in the beginning. Common limitations of the UAV are discussed in detail and possibilities to increase the quality of the data are summarized. Finally, important factors of the two special cases called power line corridor scanning and forest scanning are given and a checklist to test an UAV for its LIDAR capabilities is provided.
