August 4, 2004 LIDAR Workshop
LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data are currently being collected and used in North Carolina, initially for the flood mapping program, but many other potential uses are being explored. The first LIDAR workshop was held on October 20, 2003 at the US Geological Survey (USGS) office in Raleigh. Presenters discussed both QA/QC issues and various LIDAR applications. The discussion that followed the presentations made it clear that there was interest in having more LIDAR workshops and potentially forming a LIDAR workgroup. There was a desire expressed that another workshop be held to deal with technical realities of working with LIDAR data.
Building off these ideas, the second LIDAR workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, August 4, 2004 at North Carolina State University (NCSU), and is being organized by the NC Statewide Mapping Advisory Committee LIDAR workgroup. Anyone interested in LIDAR applications using the recently collected North Carolina data is welcome to attend.
