Light Detection and Ranging or LiDAR is a powerful remote sensing technology, capable of capturing the surroundings in three dimensions at data acquisition rates of 1 million points per second.

LiDAR affords precise, accurate, and dense information about the shape and location of any subject. The point cloud can then be used to create digital elevation models depicting all ground features, or the bare earth.
