3D topographic representation of the territory in the form of a scatter cloud. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology allows the Earth's surface to be topographically represented in three dimensions by means of a laser system mounted on board an aircraft. The large number of 3D points recorded (up to 400,000 per second) provides a multitude of details at ground level and surface elements. LiDAR technology quickly, easily and above all accurately provides elevation of ground details and elements above ground, even in dense vegetation. Uses are: creation of a digital terrain model (DEM), creation of level curves, calculation of volume, planning, calculation of tree height, mapping of roofs of buildings, 3D modeling of cities, etc. Source: XEOS imagery inc.This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).
