2015 Digital Topographic Analysis Workshop  [11]

Persistent link to this collection:

The Workshop on Digital Topographic Analysis: LiDAR, Satellite Imagery, Terrestrial Laser Scanning, and GIS was a 2-day workshop held May 14-15 2015, with a focus on using satellite imagery, LiDAR data, and terrestrial laser scanning (TLS), to create high resolution topographic maps for research in the geosciences, archaeology, geography, forestry, and many other disciplines. This workshop was run as a partnership between U-Spatial, the Polar Geospatial Center, the Heritage Collaborative, and the Departments of Earth Science and Anthropology.
