How LiDAR Works

LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing technology that uses laser light to measure distances and create detailed, accurate 3D maps or models of the target area.


LiDAR technology is widely used in various fields, including forestry, agriculture, urban planning, environmental monitoring, and autonomous vehicles. Its ability to provide highly accurate and detailed 3D information makes it a valuable tool for applications that require precise spatial data.
