Advanced Remote Sensing

In the context of this class we had to work with LiDAR data in eCognition software. We executed the vegetation extraction process by setting new rulesets in eCognition software. We generated masks which  will show all vegetation.


LiDAR stands for Light Detection and Ranging, it is similar to RADAR, but it is using infrared spectrum,  LiDAR  is  active  sensor,  because  it  is  not  using  solar  energy  to  see  the reflectance. LiDAR   is actually a platform, it is not a single sensor, it is the combination of other sensors. It has a positional part, inertial technology, laser scanner and digital imagery. The last one can be added, but it is not necessary.
