Title Development of Parameters for the Collection and Analysis of Lidar at Military Munitions Sites.
Publication Date Jan 2010
Media Count 379p
Personal Author R. Selfridge
Abstract The purpose of this project was to: Systematically investigate the effect of vegetation cover on the effectiveness of airborne lidar in munitions management. Examine the effects of lidar point classification methods on lidar data density, along with implications for munitions sites. Summarize the sources and magnitudes of lidar error, along with implications for munitions sites. Evaluate the ability of current software packages to automatically identify ground features typical of munitions sites. Summarize lessons learned from the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) Wide Area Assessment (WAA) Pilot Program. This research project extends the earlier work with light detection and ranging (lidar) that was carried out by URS Corporation in Project 200534.
